About Avalanche

Avalanche (AVAX) is a layer one blockchain competing with Ethereum, offering high-speed transactions (up to 6,500 per second) and scalability. Its unique architecture includes three blockchains—X-Chain, C-Chain, and P-Chain—each serving distinct purposes. AVAX, the native token, supports transactions, covers fees, and enables staking for network security. Described as an versatile, programmable platform for smart contracts, Avalanche is compatible with Ethereum's Solidity language, fostering integration with Ethereum's developer community. Notably, it surpasses traditional blockchains like Bitcoin with a significantly higher transaction processing capacity.

Avalanche (AVAX) History

Launched in 2020 by Ava Labs, Avalanche (AVAX) is the brainchild of Cornell University professor Emin Gün Sirer and his team. Stemming from a 2018 whitepaper, Ava Labs secured funding in 2019 and raised $42 million in a swift 2020 initial coin offering. Since its mainnet launch, Avalanche has built a robust DApps and DeFi ecosystem, drawing in projects like SushiSwap and TrueUSD. Emphasizing interoperability, Avalanche is actively developing bridges to enhance connectivity with Ethereum.

Currently, Avalanche is not a supported payment method on Alternative Airlines. Nevertheless, you can securely use other alternative cryptocurrencies to complete your flight transactions on our platform, including options such as Harmony, Fantom, Ripple, Neo, Nano and more.

Why use AVAX to buy flights?

Quick Transaction Speeds

AVAX boasts an impressive transaction output of up to 6,500 transactions per second, ensuring rapid processing without compromising scalability.

Enhanced Security

AVAX uses the Avalanche consensus mechanism on the Exchange Chain for strong security. Unlike usual methods like proof-of-work or proof-of-stake, AVAX uses a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) protocol. This allows all computers (nodes) to process and check transactions at the same time. Validators randomly check transactions to make sure they're correct. This setup removes the need for a single leader, making the system more secure and faster.

Global Accessibility

AVAX is available through various cryptocurrency exchanges, making it accessible to users around the world. This global accessibility provides individuals from different regions with the opportunity to conveniently use AVAX for transactions on Alternative Airlines.
