Avalanche [AVAX] charted a new milestone when it scored a million total wallets on its Contract chain [C-Chain] for the first time since its inception back in 2018. Reading along the same line, Marketing Exec of Avalabs Jay Kurahashi-Sofue illustrated a gradual increase in the cumulative address count of AVAX, starting from 2021.
It is noteworthy to mention that the network comprises of three individual blockchains: the X-Chain, C-Chain and P-Chain. Each chain serves a unique purpose and is entirely different from Bitcoin and Ethereum. The important chain, for the time being, is the Contract or C-Chain which is the EVM compatible chain and operates on Proof of Stake protocol, adding a layer of extra security.
With regards to its on-chain activity, the layer one blockchain is going through a phase of hyper-growth, with Total Value Locked [TVL] increasing 88x since July 2021, tapping a new high of $13.18 billion on 26th November, according to multichain stats provider DefiLlama. Even though, TVL has retraced to $12.43 billion at the time of writing, it is still hovering close to its ATH.
Previously Tronweekly reported on Avalanche’s [AVAX] entry into the coveted list of the Top 10 cryptocurrencies. AVAX hit an all-time high of $146.22 on 21st November this year, soaring by more than 200% in a span of just three months. Following that, the digital asset surpassed both Elon Musk’s favorite Dogecoin [DOGE] and its rival Shiba Inu [SHIB] to secure the 10th rank for a brief period of time.
Recent partnership in the Avalanche ecosystem
Notably, AVAX succeeded in raking new gains following the announcement of building a disaster recovery platform with prominent accounting firm Deloitte on 17th November. According to the blog post, ”The Close as You Go service simplifies disaster reimbursement applications for victims of natural disasters, by aggregating and validating the documentation required for funding”.
Avalanche yet to tap the NFT market?
AVAX’s DeFi ecosystem continues to prosper, while its footprint in the NFT space is still at its nascent stage. Nevertheless, Avalanche has started to gain traction with high-profile platforms such as Kalao and Particle being built exclusively on the blockchain.
On the price front, it is currently trading at $110.75 with a 24-hour trading volume of $1.29 billion. The 11th ranked asset is up by 2.18% in the last 24 hours.
