Avalanche is an open-source platform for launching decentralized finance applications and enterprise blockchain deployments in one interoperable, highly scalable ecosystem. Having launched in September, it is the first smart contracts platform that confirms transactions in under one second, supports the entirety of the Ethereum development toolkit and enables millions of independent validators to participate as full block producers.
AVAX is the native token of Avalanche. It is a hard-capped, scarce asset that is used to pay for fees, secure the network through staking and provide a basic unit of account between the multiple subnetworks created on the Avalanche platform.
“U.S. users have been beating down the door to get their hands on AVAX, and that’s now possible through our listing on Voyager,” said John Wu, President of Ava Labs, the team behind the Avalanche blockchain. “Avalanche can, and I believe will be the network that brings institutional and decentralized finance together, seizing the vast potential of a new market structure defined by velocity, efficiency, and innovation in new products and services available to people around the world.”
