What is Avalanche Crypto?

The Avalanche Network is made up of several blockchains that use a Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus algorithm that enables the platform to process up to 4,500 transactions per second. In comparison, Ethereum runs on the more outdated Proof-of-Work (PoW) system and can only process 14 transactions per second. Blockchains in the network are called “subnets”, with each subnet functioning as a “mini-network” of the wider Avalanche network. Like an organism made up of many cells, Avalanche is made up of thousands of subnets that work together.

The bottom line is that Avalanche is faster, cheaper, and more efficient than PoW systems like Ethereum or Bitcoin. It’s also much less polluting and requires less energy than the miners who validate transactions on PoW networks.
