What is AVAX?

Developed by Ava Labs, Avalanche is a Layer-1 smart contract platform for building decentralized applications and custom private or public blockchains. With low transaction fees and fast processing times, the platform's native coin, AVAX, is designed to be highly scalable, allowing it to compete with other major blockchains such as Ethereum.

Avalanche achieves this with its unique architecture of three interoperable blockchains: the exchange chain, contract chain and platform chain. Each blockchain handles a subset of the computing tasks required to power the network with different consensus mechanisms, thus enabling higher throughput.

AVAX is used to pay network fees, for governance and staking, and as a medium of exchange between the different blockchains in the Avalanche ecosystem.

What can I do after I buy AVAX?

As the native token of the Avalanche network, you’ll regularly be using AVAX to buy and sell other tokens and it represents your "unit of account" on the Avalanche blockchain. Additionally, you'll be using AVAX to pay for transaction fees to complete your investment transactions.

AVAX tokens can also be staked in return for a percentage of every transaction on the Avalanche network. Staking AVAX can be a profitable way to earn passive income from regular and predictable staking rewards.

Because of the high gas fees on Ethereum, Layer-1 platforms such as AVAX have quickly gained popularity. Due to their smooth user experience and transaction fees, many like AVAX have capitalized on some of Ethereum’s market share. While the winner of the smart contract platforms might not be clear yet, you can buy AVAX to gain exposure to one of the leading projects in the space.

OKX offers an easy way to buy AVAX and hundreds of tradable cryptocurrencies in the spot and futures market. You can buy AVAX with USDT using our intuitive spot trading feature or swap other crypto for AVAX in a seamless process that can be completed in minutes.
