CentOS 7 will remain the mainstream for a few more years.  8 has some major upgrades, but (or maybe "therefore") it will take a long time for the commercial app vendors to catch up.  I've been through this transition from 5 to 6 to 7, trust me... defaults to using gcc7 for everything except gcc7 & dependencies and well over 90% of pkgsrc packages build successfully in the default configuration it creates.

I intend to continue building pkgsrc binaries for CentOS 7 until its EOL.  I'll also begin building for CentOS 8 as soon as I have the time and the hardware.
