Coin of the week🤑💸

Avalanche: $AVAX

Our coin of the week is AVAX, considering multiple fundamental parameters and the current market correction. The amount of money a project raises post an ICO has a significant play in how it fares during a bear market. AVAX is among the frontrunners in this regard.

  • AVA Labs raised approx. $700 million by mid-April.
  • Pocket Worlds, a metaverse company, announced that it would be creating the first metaverse subnet on Avalanche.
  • Avalanche’s goals for 2022 and beyond are to be the biggest blockchain by total value locked.

Moreover, AVAX’s price had taken a beating over the past couple of months. We are seeing a consolidation now, and it could likely be a good time to explore this project.


Crypto simplified

The Solana blockchain went down for the eighth time on June 1st. After the outage, the development team halted the network for over four hours because of a bug in how the blockchain processes offline transactions.

What are offline transactions?

Offline transactions require collecting signatures from geographically distributed signers for their processing. Such transactions usually keep the signing process separate from transaction creation and network broadcast. They follow a more complex and time-consuming process and hence can’t always keep up with the lightning speed of the Solana blockchain. Usually, it is difficult to create and validate these transactions within the same block.

As a result, the Solana blockchain introduced ‘durable nonces’. It is a way for token holders with such an offline signing setup to sign off on a transaction prematurely without requiring an immediate block hash.

This gives the offline signing of transactions a two-minute window to complete.

What happened on Wednesday is – Solana flunked in managing durable nonces. Instead of treating both of these transactions as a single transaction in the same block, the validators double-counted them as a single transaction in two different blocks. Effectively, the same transaction got recorded twice in two separate blocks.

Thus, breaking down Solana’s consensus mechanism.

The validators have disabled ‘durable nonce transactions’ until the developers identify and fix the exact issue.

The Solana blockchain has faced many outages before this but let’s just say this is what happens when you have set out to build the fastest blockchain in the world. The network claims to have the ability to process 65000 TPS – You Fail, You Learn and Become Better.
