How do we measure how Merit is doing?

The answer is obvious: community feedback and the success of the project!

While the success of the project is still TBD and community feedback has been positive, we can look at concrete metrics around HOW MUCH work has actually been done!

We’ve prepared some interesting information to showcase exactly what’s been going on in the code.

For measuring purposes - We`ve selected all platforms and help-applications which our community is using:

  • Merit Core
  • Merit CoreWallet
  • Merit LightWallet (WEB)
  • Merit LightWallet (Desktop)
  • Merit LightWallet (Mobile)
  • Merit Mining Pool
  • Merit Market
  • Merit Invite & Support application
  • Merit Dashboard

Although this doesn’t capture 100% of the development work done (there still remains additional repositories and sub-projects which support the listed projects), this represents the majority of it.

With August as a starting point, this work has been performed by 15 developers over the last year.

In summation, the current stats add up to…

  • 6,486,759 changed lines
  • 10,875 pushed commits
  • 1,569 closed Pool Requests

6,486,759 lines This is an approximation, but to help quantify just how much code we’ve written we can say that the average page in a book has 40 lines, which means we’ve written 162,169 pages of code! 6,486,759 / 40 = 162,169 (pages).

We hope this gives members of the Merit community and those looking to learn more about Merit a better appreciation of the amount of work put into this project!
