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.

IOST (Internet of Services Token) is a blockchain platform that is focused on improving transaction speed and scalability. IOST has a unique Proof of Believability consensus mechanism that is based on past contributions and behavior.
The company claims that their platform will increase security and efficiency compared to other platforms. IOST uses a sharding technique that splits the network into smaller ones and randomly assigns tasks for the nodes on the network.
