Introducing Norge v1.5

As many of you have come to know, Norge is our custom, in-house build indexer that aims to get the most granular and precise data on Avalanche. Following the Norge 1.0 release back in november-december, we continued working on improving the existing codebase, and Norge v1.5 is now live in our backend.

There’s a lot of improvements, but all of them are just about getting indexing better on X-Chain, so you won’t notice them. But we can say that indexing and searching on X-Chain is now up to 2 times faster than before.

This is just the beginning. Norge 2.0 is in an advanced development stage, and will be released by the end of 2021, with full support of P-Chain, that will bring advanced staking statistics, supply analysis and forecast and much, much more. Stay tuned for more announcements soon.

Discover DeFi on Avalanche with Avascan

We already saw some DEXs make their way into Avalanche, but this is just the beginning: few weeks ago, we launched the DeFi Avalanche Telegram community to track and discuss all-things-DeFi on Avalanche: over 410 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”
“Even though I haven’t been able to check as often as I like, there’s always solid analysis & commentary here & now one of my pinned groups in my AVAX folder. cheers!”
This is the best avalanche group that I know of. At least people make sense and actually communicate!!

What’s new on Avascan

  • The new page Burned Fees is now complete. You can now see all the historical data of AVAX burned on the C-Chain and on the X-chain with a lot of information. You can select all, monthly, weekly and last 24 hours.

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:

  • Bridge: a very complex but comprehensive page that shows the flow of value from Avalanche to external blockchains and vice versa. Chainbridge page should be live sometime in April, with more bridge-specific pages coming in the future.
  • DEX: we know that there’s an official dashboard to check 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 May, and more specific pages will come in the future.
  • Bridged tokens: a special page that shows granular data about official ARC-20 versions of ERC-20 tokens ported from Ethereum. Expected release: June 2021
  • NFTs: lists and details pages dedicated to Non-Fungible Tokens, both on X-Chain and C-Chain. Expected release: Q2 2021
  • Supply: a more comprehensive page with details on AVAX supply and flows of the native token. Expected release: Q2 2021

Bonus: we’re working on a new small section in the C-Chain Overview page named Hot Dapps Right Now. You guess what’s that about ;) It should be live veeery soon.

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!
