Over the past month, Solana surpassed Polkadot and Cardano's daily GitHub submission rates to become the leading blockchain in terms of code development, according to Santiment data. The number of daily GitHub submissions for Solana reached 90 followed by Polkadot at 76 and Cardano at 65.

The spike in networking activity for Solana came after a recent DDoS attack on Thursday that slowed down the network significantly. The fifth largest blockchain was able to mitigate problems without shutting down the network, but it raised serious concerns about the network's vulnerability.

SOL, the native cryptocurrency of the blockchain Solana, was expecting to reach a new all-time high above $200 before the DDoS attack, but fell to a weekly low of $164.15. At the time of writing, SOL is trading at $188, according to CoinMarketCap, up over 15% in the last 24 hours.
