A new workflow

Avascan’s team is expanding, and the project’s size has grown tremendously during the past 6 months. That’s why, in the last two weeks, we took an effort to streamline and organise all of our current activities and sub-projects. We now have 5 sub-projects on-going, each one of those aimed to deliver one big module for the website and beyond.

Just to name a few (and don’t spoil everything right away):

  • Apricot Support: integrate all the current and expected features of Apricot, including X->C transfers, pruning and more;
  • NFT Complete Support: NFT support on C-Chain, new NFT Details pages and related statistics (including APIs);
  • Contract Visualization: this is the hardest to achieve, i.e. to deliver and present a new, wholly restructured contract page with rich data about the addresses connected with it and the dapp that represents, whether it be a token, bridge, DEX, etc.

Discover DeFi on Avalanche with Avascan

We already saw some DEXs make their way into Avalanche, but this is just the beginning: a couple of months ago, we launched the DeFi Avalanche Telegram community to track and discuss all-things-DeFi on Avalanche: over 670 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!!
”This channel is truly one of the more valuable resources in Avalanche, where members are often treated to quality, thoughtful analysis and conversations about the ecosystem. I hope the urge to be non-confrontational does not override the healthy need to moderate destabilizing behavior.”

Join DeFi Avalanche

This week in DeFi on Avalanche

We’re starting to summarize what’s hot in the DeFi Avalanche group every week. Join the Telegram group to know more every day.

Penguin finance has some interesting updates this week. The Penguin Compounder is live and their IDO platform is coming to Avalanche. We sure are curious and want to stay updated!

Next on Pangolin: the team launched a new reward system in the $AVAX - $PNG pool which now has a 10x multiplier. Would this system get implemented in the other pools?

Avaxcells, this new NFT project, is doing an airdrop to all the holders. You have until this Saturday (06/19/2021) to buy some cells so that you can be a candidate for the airdrop. Sure worth a try!

Later in the news: Snowball updated its governance, now it is v2! With this new feature by holding xSNOB you can change your vote. For more information Click here.

Lydia Finance opened their Maximizer, it works for LP tokens and you just need to put the tokens in the correct farm, quite easy, right? For more information Click here.

Rugpull Prevention is full of news this week. The team just did an airdrop, finished on June 16th and they opened the new Detective Score. The detective score is a new method to rate projects on Avalanche network, for all the details Click here.

Baguette and Yield Yak cooperate and Baguette launched a new feature: the auto-compounding is now available. If you want to know how the function works Click here.

And Elk Finance released its third version of the Moose NFT, this time on Fantom Opera Network. The MooseNFT allows the holder to gain priority access to special events, airdrops and many more. Click here.

Many projects launched on Avalanche or opened to our network also this week: Everest , Hurricane Swap, Hatchy Pocket, Kuu Finance and Rosetta. Everest is a DAO; Hurricane is a swap brand new and recently founded; Hatchy Poket is a new NFT project and Kuu Finance is an all finnish protocol.

What’s new on Avascan

Bugs and hotfixes:

  • The ‘Time left’ filter in the Validators list is now working again
  • Burned fees count is now correct in the Burned Fees page charts
  • Unified X-Chain and C-Chain address recognition for invalid addresses
  • Token names that begin with a space (‘ ‘) now get sorted correctly
  • Fixed a bug that appended ‘X-’ to some X-Chain addresses, resulting in an invalid address
  • Fixed a bug that got internal server error when searching for ‘pr’

Explore the Road

We are working on a lot of new pages, but it’s premature to talk about them now. We can’t be realistic about new releases because Avalanche is growing fast and we can’t design our roadmap in advance. We are on track and committed to release at least one feature every week, whether it be a redesign of the tables or a new font scheme. You may be seeing few advancements on the website, but huge developments are happening right now at Avascan. We just can’t talk about them all, but we will be tweeting some pools in the next weeks, so that you can help us understand which path to take for some improvements.

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!
