About Avalanche

Avalanche describes itself as an open, programmable smart contracts platform for decentralized applications. AVAX is used to pay transaction fees and can be staked to secure the network. Avalanche is compatible with Solidity, Ethereum’s programming language, and can be used to deploy custom private or public blockchains as “subnets.”

Launched in September 2020, Avalanche describes itself as an "open, programmable smart contracts platform for decentralized applications." It aims to provide a higher transaction output of up to 4,500 transactions per second, while other blockchains such as Bitcoin claim around 7 TPS in 2023. The Avalanche network is composed of three individual blockchains: the X-Chain, C-Chain, and P-Chain, each serving a distinct purpose, allowing Avalanche to handle a variety of use cases with different consensus mechanisms. Avalanche is compatible with Solidity, the programming language used by the Ethereum network, which means developers from one of the largest and most engaged communities in crypto can build on Avalanche and use it to deploy custom private or public blockchains as "subnets." And just like Ethereum, Avalanche can power a wide variety of applications like stablecoins, DeFi protocols (lending, savings, decentralized trading), and NFTs. Like many other decentralized protocols, Avalanche has its own token called AVAX, which is used to pay transaction fees and can be staked to secure the network. There will only ever be 720 million AVAX coins in circulation.

An Uptober to remember: Crypto markets are rallying — here’s what analysts think might happen next

An Uptober to remember: Crypto markets are rallying — here’s what analysts think might happen next

COINBASE BYTES • NOV 01, 2023

Could crypto winter finally be over? With BTC, altcoins, and even NFTs getting boosts, “Uptober” lived up to its billing.
    Last week, bitcoin broke the $35,000 level for the first time in 18 months, and prices have mostly remained above $34,000 since. At the same time, a variety of altcoins, decentralized finance (DeFi) platforms, and even NFTs have also surged. 
    The “layer 1” Ethereum alternative Avalanche gained nearly 15% last week and is up 25% in the past month overall.
    The month of “Uptober” lived up to its billing, with a number of tokens roaring back to life after months of dormancy. And while nobody can predict the future, some market watchers are more optimistic than they’ve been in a long time — and not just because of the potential for Wall Street to get a spot BTC ETF approved.
