The solution makes it possible to track the development of the most popular open-source distributed ledger platforms, including those used to create and distribute cryptocurrencies.
The system automatically collects and processes the information on 20 repositories of distributed registry platforms with which applications are created on the block chain. Among the analysed repositories are both foreign platforms like Bitcoin and Ethereum, and Russian ones — Waves, Exonum, IZZZIO, and others. Analytics is also being collected on a thousand satellite projects that complement the primary software systems, and on consensus algorithms that are used in distributed registry systems. Evaluation and comparison of platforms are performed automatically according to several criteria: development activity, community feedback, user interest, and progress.
The results of the analysis can be useful for developers to select a specific platform for distributed registries and create applications, market analysts to assess the prospects for the development of platforms, as well as for those who want to implement distributed registries in production and business. Also, the solution makes it possible to track the development of the most popular platforms used to create and distribute cryptocurrencies.
The NTI Competence Centre based on the St. Petersburg State University will publish weekly on their website a document under the name of "Analytics and Ranking of Distributed Ledger Systems". It will have the latest, accurate, and complete analytics of block chain platforms in Russia and the world.
The NTI Competence Centres are units created based on educational or scientific organizations. The centres conduct research and educational activities in consortium with leading technology companies in the interest of developing "end-to-end technologies". Among these technologies, there are big data, artificial intelligence, quantum technologies, new and portable energy sources, wireless communication technologies, virtual and augmented reality technologies, and others. A total of 14 such centres have been created. Until 2021, state funding of the Centres for 10.3 billion roubles is provided. The operator of the NTI Competence Centre project is RVC.
