Avalanche is an open, programmable blockchain platform for building decentralized applications (Dapps) and smart contracts. Its unique architecture features separate blockchains for token swaps, Dapps, and validators, which enables greater scalability. Avalanche is compatible with Solidity – Ethereum’s programming language – and can be used to deploy custom private or public blockchains as “subnets.” You can buy and sell AVAX for any major cryptocurrency, like BTC, ETH, and XRP or traditional currency such as Canadian Dollar, US Dollar, and Euro. Trading cryptocurrencies is like foreign exchange of traditional currencies – you trade AVAX for BTC the same way you trade CAD for USD. You can also trade AVAX to CAD based on the AVAX price. To learn how to buy Avalanche / AVAX, scroll down to see how to buy Avalanche.

Launched in 2020 by Ava Labs (which was founded by Emin Gün Sirer), Avalanche is an Ethereum competitor that facilitates the creation of custom blockchains (including private blockchains) and decentralized applications (dApps). Deploying smart contracts on Avalanche cost just a tenth of what they cost on Ethereum as it eliminates the dependency on high gas fees, front-running, and other adverse effects of slow smart contract blockchains.

You may want to consider buying AVAX if you would like to:

Diversify your portfolio by introducing a variety of cryptocurrency assets

Participate in staking in Avalanche’s consensus process

Invest in Layer-1 blockchain platforms

Exchange it for cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin to buy and sell goods online
