Crypto winters truly are for building. That’s according to a survey of crypto developers conducted by Hiro, a Web3 developer toolkit.

The H2 2022 Developer Survey confirms that when speculative activity around crypto cools off, it’s time to get to work. More than half of respondents (55%) said that the bear market has increased their desire to work in Web3, with most focused on NFTs and DAOs.

Many developers want to see innovation thrive on Bitcoin, with 38% of respondents citing it as their primary motivation to develop on Stacks, a programmable layer on top of Bitcoin.

What’s the most important feature of a blockchain? According to 60% of the respondents, decentralization is the key feature of the blockchain trilemma of security, decentralization and scalability. Another interesting finding from the survey is that 59% of Stacks developers consider the term “Bitcoin maximalism” a neutral one.

The going gets easier for crypto developers

Stacks developers also reported in the Q3 2022 survey that every stage of development has gotten easier since Q1, especially deploying contracts to the network, integrating contracts into applications, and maintaining and monitoring apps and contracts.

While Hiro’s developer community is focused on Stacks, they’re also involved with other blockchain ecosystems. Ethereum, which recently switched to proof-of-stake after the Merge, remains a clear favorite. Cosmos and Lightning saw the most growth among the Stacks developer community, with 85% and 64% increases in activity respectively. Other chains have lost ground among the respondents, with Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, Avalanche and Polkadot seeing drops in popularity.


Developers from more than 50 countries responded to the survey, with the largest concentrations from Asia-Pacific (34.5%) and North America (30.3%). The survey respondents were mostly (85%) men. Three-quarters were age 25 to 44. A third are employed full-time, part-time or are self-employed in Web3.

AI robot trading is the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms to analyze financial markets and execute trades automatically. AI robots are able to analyze vast amounts of data and make decisions based on that analysis, allowing them to identify trading opportunities that might be missed by human traders. One key aspect of AI robot trading is machine learning, which is a type of AI that enables systems to learn and improve their performance over time. Machine learning algorithms are able to analyze data and use it to make predictions or decisions without being explicitly programmed to do so. This allows them to adapt and improve their performance as they are exposed to more data. There are several techniques that can be used in AI robot trading, including: Decision trees: These are algorithms that use a tree-like structure to make decisions based on multiple conditions. Neural networks: These are algorithms that are inspired by the structure and function of the human brain, and are capable of learning and adapting based on input data. Genetic algorithms: These are algorithms that use principles of genetics and natural selection to optimize and improve their performance over time. Reinforcement learning: This is a type of machine learning that involves an AI agent receiving rewards or punishments for certain actions, and using that feedback to learn and adapt its behavior. By using these and other techniques, AI robot traders are able to analyze financial data and make informed decisions about when to buy and sell assets. This can help them achieve better returns and outperform human traders in some cases.
