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


Discover DeFi on Avalanche with Avascan

The kickstart of the Avalanche <-> Ethereum bridge has finally baptised Avalanche as the DeFi platform users want to use to avoid high transaction fees.
We already saw some DEXs make their way into Avalanche, but this is just the beginning: last week, we’ve launched the DeFi Avalanche Telegram community to track and discuss all-things-DeFi on Avalanche: 100 users already joined!

Modifications to Validator Claims

We’re in the process of streamlining our community activities, and you can already see the effects: we can now process Validator Claims in less than 24 hours (excluding the icon, that can take longer to appear).

The preferred way of claiming a Validator is by signing a message, so head to our Discord to claim it!

This week in Avascan

We have now mapped almost 360 validators both with the Validator Claim Program and our forensics work on-chain!
Also, the bridge and Pangolin DEX have brought a lot of activity on the Avalanche network and, of course, on Avascan: for the first time since launching last year, we recorded a new high of 140,000 unique users in the last 30 days! That’s a huge number, and reflects perfectly the growth of AVAX as the (at the time of writing) 31st cryptocurrency by market cap in CoinMarketCap.

What’s new on Avascan

  • We now show the transactions involved in the invalid minting bug of last week (example);
  • There’s a new Chainbridge section in the homepage. It now brings to a filtered Transaction on C-Chain page, but will bring to the special Chainbridge dashboard soon.

Explore the Road

We’re working on a lot of new improvements and special pages to show more data about the new Dapps and tokens:

  • Burned AVAX: a special page that includes detailed information about AVAX burned on X-Chain and C-Chain;
  • Wrapped on AVAX: a special page that shows granular data about official ARC-20 versions of ERC-20 tokens ported from Ethereum;
  • Chainbridge: a very complex but comprehensive page that shows the flow of value from Ethereum to Avalanche and viceversa;
  • Pangolin: we know that there’s an official dashboard to check the the liquidity pool and pairs, but we’re working on a detailed contract page that highlights useful information about burning rate, transactions, etc.
    And, of course, we’re also developing Norge 2.0. There’s a lot on the plate right now.

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!
