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 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: over 180 members already joined!

This is what users tell about the group:
“You’ve found a gem group”
“This is definitely a more civilized level headed chat”
“It’s impossible to keep up with the trading channel. You can have a real discussion here, there’s been some good chat & insights 😊”

What’s new on Avascan

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

  • ARC-20 Token Holders: yep, you know what’s that: a list of all the addresses that hold each ARC-20 token. This is in the final phase, and will likely be released next week.
  • Burned AVAX: a special page that includes detailed information about AVAX fees burned on C-Chain first, and then on X-Chain and P-Chain. It should be live by end of March
  • Chainbridge: a very complex but comprehensive page that shows the flow of value from Ethereum to Avalanche and viceversa. It should be live sometime in April.
  • 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. It should be live in April, and more specific pages will come in the future.
  • Wrapped on AVAX: a special page that shows granular data about official ARC-20 versions of ERC-20 tokens ported from Ethereum. It should be live in May

And, of course, we’re also continuing the development of Norge 2.0, that will take a few months to be completed.

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!
