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.

Truffle is one of the leading providers of blockchain development tools. The Truffle platform consists of three tools that are designed to assist developers in creating DApps: Truffle, Ganache and Drizzle. Truffle is a testing framework for DApps using the Etereum Virtual Machine. Ganache allows users to easily create a personalized version of the Ethereum blockchain to run tests and execute commands. Drizzle is a collection of front-end libraries that help developers create user interfaces for DApps.
