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


Full documentation in progress

We are going forward with the documentation. We published an introduction, an overview of the Blockchains page and a module about the keyboard shortcuts. We are going slowly with this, because there will likely be many more minor changes to the user interface and experience from now on. But stay assured, you will have much less need to hop in the Avascan community on Telegram or Discord. This is a shame for us, because we like when there’s a lot of activity, but it means that we’re doing a good job and that everything is clear.

We also updated the procedure to claim validators, so be sure to read that before making a claim in the future: it’s simpler and includes a procedure to remove a previously-claimed validator (everyone has its reasons).

This week in Avalanche

  • AvalancheGo v1.1.3 released - update is optional but encouraged. The patch includes minor bug fixes relating to APIs.
  • e-Money to launch a range of European stablecoins on the C-Chain
  • YIELD App is Expanding its DeFi Banking Solution to Avalanche

This week in Avascan

We have now mapped more than 300 validators both with the Validator Claim Program and our forensics work on-chain!

What’s new on Avascan

Many small but important changes to the overall user experience:

  • You can now order assets on X-Chain by name and date of creation;
  • Sorting is now available on delegations, too (in a Validator Details page);
  • You can now order UTXOs on X-Chain by Accepted and by Value, in both ways;
  • Did you know that you can filter transactions by multiple types on C-Chain? Yeah, we added that, too;

Explore the Road

  • We are now beginning to implement the first new set of tweaks to C-Chain views after the release late last year. This also includes additions to support the upcoming transaction from and to Ethereum via the new ChainBridge;
  • We are also planning the development of the P-Chain indexer, the last major step that will let us complete all aspects of address indexing and let users get every kind of data from the Avalanche network. We’re still in the documentation and requisites phase, so don’t expect to see any change in the next few weeks!

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.

Thank you for reading, see you next week!
