A more detailed roadmap

Avalanche is changing fast, and Avascan’s changing with it. With new features and improvements touching every aspect of the network, we needed to re-think the way we work in order to develop the best explorer possible. This meant brainstorming about a long pipeline of features and pages that Avascan needs, can and must have in the future, following Avalanche’s path.
It’s constantly changing, but we can now say that Avascan is on course to have more than 120 new features in the future. These range from new APIs and pages to new data hubs and types of information. We would like to tell you more, but we want to have a clear mindset about this before saying it out loud. The Burned Fees page was just the beginning.

The output is simple: we’re working to render Avascan a future-proof explorer, ready for the next generation of apps and tokens that will be deployed on the Avalanche network. Stay with us while we embark on this journey.

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 480 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

Nothing on the radar this week. There’s a new Apricot Phase upgrade, and we’re working to get Avascan ready for the mainnet launch on May 10th.

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 May, 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 June, 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 yet a few weeks 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!
