Solana ecosystem sees surge in developer retention and global growth

Solana’s developer retention soared to 50%, with global expansion, diverse hackathon participation, and SOL’s impressive 1,000% gain marking 2023.

In 2023, the Solana ecosystem experienced a significant boost in developer retention, surging from 31% to over 50% in a three-month period, as reported by the Solana Foundation. This improvement was attributed to enhanced developer onboarding processes and increased opportunities within the ecosystem.

The evaluation of retention rates focused on developers who consistently made at least one commit over three consecutive months. Notably, 400-500 Solana developers graduated from various bootcamps every six months, contributing to a 500% growth in job listings throughout the year.

GitHub data revealed that the improved retention rate led to a consistent monthly active developer count ranging from 2,500 to 3,000 within the Solana ecosystem in 2023. The foundation highlighted advancements in tooling for multiple programming languages and additional educational resources as key factors contributing to the positive trend, while acknowledging areas like testing and debugging for potential improvement.

Notably, this surge in developer activity aligned with a remarkable year for Solana’s native cryptocurrency, SOL, which saw a remarkable 1,000% increase from $10 to $102, making it the top-performing major altcoin in 2023. Currently, Solana (SOL) is trading at $101, with Solana setting fresh records for new and active monthly addresses in December amid a notable price rally.
