About Avalanche (AVAX)

Avalanche was founded by Cornell University computer scientists Emin Gün Sirer, Kevin Sekniqi and Ted Yin. Avalanche is built on Avalanche Consensus, a novel approach to consensus introduced in 2018. Development is being led by Ava Labs, with a community of open source developers supporting and expanding its utility. Avalanche finalises transactions instantly, with fees that are just a fraction of those on Ethereum, keeping decentralised finance (DeFi) accessible to users of all sizes and unlocking use cases that are not possible with slower platforms. Ethereum developers can quickly build on Avalanche as Solidity works out-of-the-box.

AVAX is the native token of the Avalanche project and is used for paying for fees, securing the network through staking and providing a basic account unit between the multiple subnetworks on the Avalanche platform.

Avalanche is backed by leading investors, including Andreessen Horowitz, Initialized Capital, Galaxy Digital, Polychain Capital, Bitmain, Naval Ravikant, and Balaji Srinivasan and raised $42M in just 4.5 hrs in a public sale.
