The research firm noted that over 400 developers and 70,000 unique contracts are deployed on the default smart contract blockchain on Avalanche. Delphi Digital expects the trend to continue.
“In the past month alone, unique C-Chain developers have doubled from 200 to 400. With the recent launch of AvaLabs’ Subnet-[Ethereum Virtual Machine or EVM], it seems reasonable to expect the number of developers to continue multiplying,” as per a note seen by Benzinga.
Delphi Digital pointed out that the Subnet-EVM makes it easy to deploy EVM-compatible blockchains using a single JSON file, which only takes just 90 seconds.
