Explore is partnering with the This Week in Avalanche to get news about the Avalanche ecosystem.


Introducing Fuji Testnet on Avascan

We announced it last week: you can browse the Avalanche Fuji testnet on Avascan! To access it, you just need to toggle the view from the upper right corner.

The testnet view has a different, darker and more opaque color palette across the pages. We obviously show way less data in the homepage, but all the improvements that will be developed for the mainnet will also be available on the testnet view.

You can also directly access it by going to https://testnet.avascan.info.

This week in Avalanche

  • AvalancheGo v1.1.0 (Apricot Phase 0) released and the network was successfully upgraded. The release includes general preparations for the Apricot network upgrade and fixed an issue that prevented stake-able locked outputs from being unlocked.
  • The first wave of locked crowdsale AVAX tokens were released. With the new supply included, AVAX now has a valuation of ~$250M and sits at rank 65 on Coingecko.

Explore the Road

  • We are still working on extending the capabilities of the search bar by including results on C-Chain, NodeIDs, Manager Aliases, UTXOs and much more. We’re also working on autocomplete and multiple-page results;
  • We are working on a consolidation update for the Staking Stats page, that will likely go live in January, along with a pack of new small features we’re working on before the holiday break.

We want to hear your feedback: head to our Changemap page to request new features or report bugs, and start a conversation in the #feedback channel in our Discord server or in the Telegram community.

This is the last issue of the year: we are working to squash a few bugs here and there and preparing 2020 with the right step. We will be back with the first newsletter of 2021 on January 8th.

Merry Xmas (for those that celebrate it), happy new year, be safe and keep exploring Avalanche with Avascan!
