About Avalanche (AVAX)
Avalanche (AVAX) is a blockchain project that has a unique consensus algorithm, smart contract language, smart contract virtual machine, and execution environment. It provides support for smart contracts and enables developers to create decentralised applications (dApps). The AVAX token acts as a staking mechanism and is required to run a node on the platform. It provides users with a unique platform to build decentralized apps, tokenize securities, and trade digital assets.

Frequently asked questions
What is Avalanche (AVAX) and how does it work?
Avalanche (AVAX) operates as a blockchain platform to tackle the blockchain triple threat of scalability, security, and decentralisation through its unique Proof of Stake (PoS) mechanism.
Avalanche stands out in three key areas: its unique consensus mechanism, integration of subnetworks, and utilisation of multiple built-in blockchains. Its novel consensus mechanism, an extension of PoS, resolves blockchain trilemma constraints.
The platform operates via three distinct blockchains to enhance scalability. Subnetworks validate specific blockchains within the network, with their validators also authenticating Avalanche's Primary Network for consensus.
How is the Avalanche (AVAX) price determined and updated?
The AVAX price is determined by supply and demand. When more traders are buying AVAX, the price tends to go up. When more traders are selling, the price tends to go down.
AVAX is consistently updated in real-time as trading activities occur across BTC Market’s exchange platform.
What is the consensus mechanism used by Avalanche (AVAX) and its benefits?
Avalanche employs an innovative consensus mechanism evolving from PoS. When a user triggers a transaction, a validator node samples a random set of other validators to ensure consensus. This "gossiping" process iterates, with validators sharing messages among themselves.
By separating consensus across multiple layers, Avalanche Consensus achieves high throughput while maintaining security and decentralisation. This approach enables the network to process thousands of transactions per second while promoting network resilience.
Where can Avalanche (AVAX) be bought?
For those based in Australia, BTC Markets is a leading cryptocurrency exchange platform that offers a user-friendly interface, competitive fees, and a proven track record for AVAX purchases.
Are there any unique features or projects built on the Avalanche (AVAX) platform?
Avalanche offers several unique features that set it apart from other blockchain platforms. Some of these include three-chain architecture, a unique PoS consensus mechanism, and cross-chain compatibility.
Avalanche features 3 built-in blockchains which include Exchange Chain (X-Chain), Platform Chain (P-Chain), and Contract Chain (C-Chain) which enable it to achieve high throughput, support interoperability, and customised blockchains for specific use cases. Avalanche's PoS balances security, scalability, and decentralisation.
