About Blockchains

What is Avalanche?


Avalanche emerges as a rapid, scalable blockchain platform facilitating the seamless creation and deployment of dApps. Distinguished by its unique consensus mechanism, it's particularly good for DeFi applications, allowing high throughput and nearly instant finality. Its architecture allows for a network of interconnected blockchains, each safeguarded by dynamic subsets of validators, ensuring scalability while maintaining speed, reliability, and security.

What is Arbitrum?


Arbitrum serves as a Layer 2 scaling solution for Ethereum, leveraging rollups to significantly boost scalability and reduce transaction costs while maintaining robust security. It enables developers to execute EVM-compatible smart contracts with a substantially higher transaction throughput and lower fees compared to Ethereum's main chain, making it a compelling platform for decentralized application development.
