* Agent activity is measured using the Proof of Active Agent validation system pioneered by Valory. It is designed to measure activity by looking at the number of Mech requests made by the agent, where meeting a threshold (10 or more) requests qualifies as active. For evaluation purposes, number of mech requests for active agents will break any ties.
