What to consider when buying Avalanche

When buying any cryptocurrency it is important to understand the risks associated with the underlying technology, as well as be aware of the volatile market conditions. In particular, buyers of AVAX will want to consider the following:
  • Avalanche is yet another new protocol competing in the over-saturated market of base-layer blockchains which include platforms such as Ethereum, EOS and Tezos.
  • As a newer protocol, it is yet to have its vulnerabilities and potential weaknesses thoroughly tested.
  • AVAX block rewards are set to vary over time in accordance with governance decisions, which means any return on investment via staking will be dynamic. In the first year after launch, the staking reward is set at a target between 7% and 12%.
Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Avalanche, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of AVAX is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision. Finder, or the author, may have holdings in the Avalanche or any other cryptocurrency discussed.
