Mapping out Ethereum’s Developer Ecosystem

Quick Take

  • Ethereum is the leading smart contract platform for developers
  • Some estimates suggest there are between 250,000 to 350,000 developers building on Ethereum
  • The Block has mapped out its developer ecosystem. We categorized the ecosystem into six sub-categories: (1) Protocols & Platforms (2) Testing & Frameworks (3) Infrastructure (4) Scaling (5) Privacy, and (6) Storage.

Ethereum is by far the leading smart contract platform for developers. While the number of developers in the ecosystem is a topic of debate — estimates range from 250,000 to 350,000download data from popular development tools show that Ethereum continues to see increasing interest from developers.

Influential members of the Ethereum community, in turn, have adopted BUIDL as their battle cry for developers to build products ranging from decentralized prediction markets, governance platforms, and security tokens, on Ethereum.
