Company Description

The Avalanche token (AVAX) performs various tasks within Avalanche's Proof of Stake blockchain network. The Avalanche token functions as a rewards and payment system for users. The network is designed to be an open-source platform for launching highly decentralized applications, enterprise deployments, and decentralized financial instruments. The Avalanche ecosystem is meant to be smore scalable and interoperable than other blockchain platforms. Unlike Bitcoin and many other networks, transaction fees are “burnt” in order to increase token scarcity. This process is offset by the release, or “minting,” of new coins.
Avalanche was launched by Ava Labs, whose founder Emin Gün Sirer is a veteran computer scientist that has been very influential in the Blockchain space. Gün Sirer is a computer science professor at Cornell University and has written extensively about scaling blockchain networks.

Holo is a decentralized hosting provider that is built on top of Holochain. DApps can be set up and deployed with Holo hosting, as a decentralized alternative to Amazon Web Services, or other centralized hosting solutions.
Holochain is a protocol for creating decentralized Apps and is different from blockchain protocols in several ways. The main difference being that Holochain takes an agent-centric approach to their consensus mechanism, and has a different approach to validating value transfers.
The HOT token is used for paying for hosting services on Holo, and users can be paid for offering their computing resources.
