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: 110 users already joined!

Join DeFi Avalanche

This week in Avalanche

  • Coin98 Wallet adds support for Avalanche and its native tokens
  • Cartesi is integrating with Avalanche to expand Layer-2 infrastructure within DeFi
  • Biconomy is coming to the C-Chain. it allows for gasless transactions and could be very useful for users crossing aeb who have no AVAX to pay for transactions.

This week in Avascan

We have now mapped almost 360 validators both with the Validator Claim Program and our forensics work on-chain!

What’s new on Avascan

  • Introducing meta attributes for addresses! This new feature will let us map all the addresses available on Avalanche with additional details, including:
  • Alias;
  • Owner;
  • Unlock date of the whole funds (if the address belongs to the genesis block);
  • Type: can be an address related to an exchange, the AEB bridge*, a *dapp, and much more!
  • symbol for token contract addresses;
  • icon;
  • reputation: this is a discretional tag, that Avascan staff will periodically update to reflect the status of the project related to the token address or address as it’s perceived in the Avalanche community (and beyond). There are 4 tags: Unknown (default for every address, it means that we don’t have enough information), Low (meaning that there has been something suspicious about it), Medium (there is a lot of chatter about it, but we don’t know if it’s a safe project or not) and High (we know the team, have high confidence and there’s good hype around it).

We monitor every Avalanche community to classify the addresses, but if you have some suggestions that you want us to look closely, head to the #addresses channel in our Discord server.

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 fees 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!
