What is Avalanche?

Avalanche is a high-performance smart contract protocol for decentralized applications. It has been touted as the real Ethereum flipper by several crypto natives since its mainnet launch in 2020. 

Developed by the Ava Labs team, the platform aims to solve the scalability issue that limits blockchain adoption. 

How is Avalanche Unique? 

Avalanche seeks to scale blockchain networks without compromising on decentralized or security, the crux of the blockchain trilemma. To achieve this, Avalanche operates on three separate but interoperable blockchains, which are: 

  • Exchange Chain (X): handles all token minting and transfers. 
  • Platform chain (P): handles transactions related to network delegation and validation. Users can become validators or delegators by staking a minimum of 2,000 or 25 $AVAX, respectively. APYs are as high as 10% with a 2-week unlocking period.
  • Contract Chain (C): handles all smart contracts. 

These blockchains use different consensus mechanisms to deliver a high throughput robust, secure, and decentralized blockchain. At the time of writing, up to 4500 transactions can be processed in a second, with a finality time of less than a second. 

Should I Buy AVAX?

$AVAX is Avalanche’s native utility token. It serves to secure the network and pay fees. AVAX has a total supply of 720 million, with 40% for investors and the team, 10% for public sales, and 50% for staking rewards. 

Fundamentals largely determine the success of any crypto, and Avalanche is faring pretty well with that. With its foot deep in numerous DeFi services like asset issuance, exchange, lending and borrowing, insurance, prediction markets, derivatives, etc., it is clear that their sustained growth will positively impact $AVAX price in the long term.
