Technology Development Status

At the moment, Basic Attention Token has 30 repositories open to the public on GitHub, with the oldest one now being 2.54 years young. The last recorded update to its public repositories was within the past week which is not bad, as the coin is still being updated routinely. Basic Attention Token’s public repositories collectively have a total of 221 watchers, which is below average relative to its peers; that’s more than only 30 % of the 100 similar coins in our index. The coin has 106 outstanding issues in the backlog awaiting to be addressed by the core development team. Its number of watchers, when viewed against its open issues count, is quite poor, and may potentially indicate some concern that the software is at risk of not being updated fast enough. Our hypothesis that the open issue/watcher ratio may be of some value in assessing the healthiness of a coin’s software development process, and for Basic Attention Token, this ratio was better than a mere 7 % of the similar coins we track in our index.
