Avalanche is an open-source platform for creating decentralized apps and enterprise blockchain installations in a single, admiringly scalable ecosystem. Avalanche is the first decentralized innovative contract platform designed for global finance's size, with near-instant transaction completion. Because Solidity works out of the box, Ethereum developers can quickly build on Avalanche.
The consensus protocol determines Avalanche from other decentralized networks. People have developed the misconception that blockchains must be sluggish and scalable over time. The Avalanche protocol uses a revolutionary approach to the consensus to deliver its strong safety guarantees, speedy finality, and high throughput without compromising decentralization.
Why avalanche outperforms alternative blockchain platforms.
Speed Uses a novel consensus protocol, developed by a team of Cornell computer scientists, and is able to permanently confirm transactions in under 1 second.
Scalability Capable of 4,500 transactions per second–an order of magnitude greater than existing blockchains.
Security Ensures stronger security guarantees well-above the 51% standard of other networks.
Flexibility Easily create custom blockchains and decentralized apps that contain almost any arbitrary logic.
Sustainability Uses energy-efficient proof-of-stake consensus algorithm rather than proof-of-work.
Smart Contract Support Supports the creation of Solidity smart contracts and your favorite Ethereum tools like Remix, Metamask, Truffle, and more.
Private and Public Blockchains Create your own public or private blockchains.
Designed for Finance Native support for easily creating and trading digital smart assets with complex, custom rulesets.
