Research: Blockstream and Lightning Lab fund the largest number of open source Bitcoin developers

BitMEX Research recently compiled a detailed chart on the sources of funding for open source Bitcoin and Lightning Network developers. The chart data reveals which institutions or individuals are funding the development of Bitcoin and Lightning Network. Blockstream and Lightning Labs are the largest funders of open source development work in this field (in terms of quantity only), and in terms of Bitcoin core, Chaincode Labs is currently the largest funder of developer work (in terms of quantity only). The conclusion states that, in terms of the efficiency of the use of funds, transparency, and the degree of dispersion of funders, the state of funding for bitcoin development is healthier than in the past.
