Discover DeFi on Avalanche with Avascan

A couple of months ago, we launched the DeFi Avalanche Telegram community to track and discuss all-things-DeFi on Avalanche: over 680 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.”

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.

Pangolin, one of Avalanche top projects, is full of news this week. The team released the roadmap for 2021, which is quite interesting. If you want to see the details. Click here. Pangolin also opened a partnership with Beefy Finance and Canary. Beefy is already connected with Pangolin in several pairs, and the team hopes that with this new partnership the liquidity will increase. Canary is a competitor but the two projects decided to work together to strengthen the security and the quality of both and of the Avalanche Network.

Next on Penguin Finance: they launched the compounder bonus APY week. All the rewards are available for 7 days without any fees. Yes, you heard correctly! Guess it is a good opportunity to give it a try!

Lydia Finance started Maximus, an APY that maximizes yield farming. And also started a partnership with Penguin Finance, which is full of features. If you want to know more. Click here.

Later in the news: Yield Yak explained in full details their strategy and their structure about the token is going to be live soon. Sure a complete plan, we are looking forward to see it! Click here.

Contract Visualization: You can now search addresses by type. Try to search ‘Bridge’ or ‘Exchange’ ;)

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!
