The list is as follows:

  • Status  
  • Storj  
  • Cosmos (Tendermint)
  • Gnosis  
  • High Fidelity (EOS)
  • IoTex

  • Aragon  
  • Aelf  
  • Trust Wallet  
  • Santiment  
  • Golem  
  • Decentraland  
  • Metamask  
  • BlockScout

The most notable omission from the list if Cardano which saw the most GitHub activity on 2018 with 45,758 commits, 5754 stars, 5639 watchers, 559 contributors and 16 languages. The Cardano community, along with founder Charles Hoskinson, didn’t take kindly to the announcement.  

Hoskinson tweeted:

“No Cardano? huh, I guess counting is hard.”
