Monthly Active Developer continued the growth trend for the past 30 days and continued to grow at a faster rate than previous week and reaching almost 1500! This is most likely the continuation and effect of NEARCon.

Accounts and more

Transactions, Txs, Txs

Daily Number of Transactions

Daily transactions had another spike this past week on Nov 6. From the contracts breakdown, we can see that the spike was mostly contributed by Aurora, which just finished IDO and announced the integration with Chainlink and also conducted AMA.

Weekly Active Developer Internal & Weekly Active Dev-deploy/Deploy

From CLI data in the last 30 days Weekly

Correlating to the increase in new developers on Nov 2, weekly active developer and dev-deploy/deploy also had slight increase on that day. Overall, it increased and remained at a new historical high level of 520 and 250. Similar to what we discussed the previous week, the ratio continued as before. This could be a new norm ration with this overall increase of weekly active developers. Top of Funnel Traffic Snapshot

The traffic decreased by around 60% from the previous week’s huge spike, which is a very reasonable level of decrease.

However, several things worth noting are: Portugal increased by 0.7% this week in terms of country traffic breakdown, showing the NEARCon effect continued to spread in Portugal. In addition, traffic increased by over 100%. YouTube, which just posted NEARCon videos, also experienced a 200% increase in traffic, showing that NEARCon videos are successfully attracting people’s interest.
