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 715 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.”

What’s new on Avascan

  • In the Tokens (C-Chain) and Assets (X-Chain) lists, the items are now sorted from new to old by default;
  • Fixed a bug that showed the current hour in the 24h chart in the Burned Fees statistics page
  • Adjusted layout of NFT Details page for mobile devices
  • Added a message or unavailable nodes in the Validator Details page

We’re more confident now of what’s going to happen next on Avascan, so we can tell you more - no ETA yet!
Avalanche Bridge support: Ava Labs has announced the next-generation bridge, and we’re preparing Avascan so that users can know exactly where to find it and what’s happening there;
Whale transactions: we announced this page a long time ago, but we had more than a few hiccups in processing that data. We now implemented a way to do that, and we’re almost ready to release it . This should be out by the end of the month;
Hot Dapps: this is going to be huge. With the same tech we’re using for whale transactions, we will be able to sort dapps by the ones that are most used on the network. This should be out by the end of summer;

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!
