Blazingly Fast
Low Cost, & Eco-Friendly.
Avalanche is the fastest smart contracts platform in the blockchain industry, as measured by time-to-finality, and has the most validators securing its activity of any proof-of-stake protocol.

What’s possible with Avalanche?

Build Now
Avalanche is an open, programmable smart contracts platform for decentralized applications.

Build fast, low cost, Solidity-compatible dapps

Launch Ethereum dapps that confirm transactions instantly and process thousands of transactions per second, far beyond any decentralized blockchain platform today.

Launch customized blockchains, private & public

Deploy blockchains that fit your own application needs. Build your own virtual machine and dictate exactly how the blockchain should operate.

Scale to millions of validators with minimal hardware

Stake, or lock up, your AVAX to help process transactions and further secure the platform–providing security guarantees well-above the 51% standard. You probably have the hardware required to join the platform.

Build Solidity Dapps Without Limits

Build now
Avalanche is Solidity-compatible. All of your favorite tools like Remix, Truffle, and Tenderly work out of the box.
Lowest costs to deploy contracts

Deploying smart contracts on Avalanche cost just a tenth of what they cost on Ethereum. High gas fees, front-running, and other adverse effects of slow smart contract blockchains are now a thing of the past.

Flexible, composable VMs

Avalanche Virtual Machines (VMs) enable developers to easily launch blockchains with a wide array of application-specific features. The Ethereum Virtual Machine is fully running on Avalanche with more VMs to come.

Easily transfer existing Ethereum assets

Interoperability of blockchains is the future. The Avalanche Bridge (AB) enables easy transfers of Avalanche and Ethereum assets between blockchains.
