About Avalanche (AVAX)
Avalanche is a proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain network that supports decentralized finance (DeFi) applications and enables the development of enterprise blockchains. Avalanche developers can build their own blockchain applications and networks that are governed by complex rules or develop on top of existing public and private subnetworks (subnets).
AVAX is the native token of the Avalanche network, and is used to pay fees, secure the platform through staking, and provide a basic unit of account between the multiple subnets created on the network. AVAX also provides on-chain governance for critical network parameters where participants can vote on changes to the network.
