What Is Avalanche?

Avalanche is a blockchain using the Avalanche consensus mechanism, combining features of both classical and Nakamoto consensus mechanisms to achieve high throughput and fast finality. The core of the Avalanche network consists of three different chains: the Exchange Chain (X-Chain), the Contract Chain (C-Chain) and the Platform Chain (P-Chain). These chains play different parts in the system, where the C-Chain offers support for EVM-compatible smart contracts. The native token of Avalanche is AVAX. Learn more about Avalanche on its website.
