What is Avalanche?

Avalanche is a decentralised network that introduces a unique consensus protocol in order to host a network of high-speed blockchains, smart contracts and applications.

Avalanche’s focus on smart contracts, efficient transactions and hosting decentralized applications has seen it dubbed as one of the potential ‘Ethereum killers’. It offers many of the same functions as the Ethereum blockchain, but with faster transaction times.

Avalanche’s price surged in September 2021 on the back of $230 million of private funding from Polychain and Three Arrows Capital.

Avalanche’s Mainnet is EVM compatible, meaning that dApps on the Ethereum layer 1 network can be ported over to Avalanche without duress. They’ve also developed an Avalanche–Ethereum bridge that improves interoperability further, providing blockchain users and dApp developers the ability to transfer ETH and AVAX tokens between their respective networks.

AVAX is the native token of Avalanche. The AVAX token is primarily used for transactions, staking and network fees. It can also be used as the major economic token for various decentralized projects built on the protocol.

Avalanche (AVAX) is the 17th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $4,810,164,360. The current price of Avalanche is $14.37, which is 1.964% higher than yesterday.
