Token Stats

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.

Zilliqa is an innovative blockchain platform that is designed to be more scalable as the network grows. Zilliqa's platform is based on the concept of sharding; which involves breaking a large network of computers into smaller decentralized networks.
Zilliqa's goal is to increase transaction rates as its network expands. The platform is tailored towards enabling secure data-driven decentralized apps that are designed to meet the scaling requirements of machine learning and financial algorithms.
