Coinbase Cloud provides web3 APIs, services, and infrastructure to power the next generation of software builders. As part of our vision to empower developers building the future of web3, we are launching a suite of blockchain infrastructure solutions and services for the growing Avalanche ecosystem.
Avalanche is a high-speed smart contract platform with near-instant finality and EVM compatibility. Developers can deploy their Ethereum applications on Avalanche’s C-Chain or deploy custom-built blockchains as a subnet. Avalanche has seen accelerated growth in 2021 since its launch in 2020, reaching new highs in active addresses, transactions, and total value locked. A number of high-profile projects such as Curve, Aave, and DeFi Kingdoms expanded into Avalanche alongside native projects like Trader Joe, BENQI, and Crabada.
Coinbase Cloud is committed to supporting the Avalanche ecosystem, making it easier and faster for developers to build innovative applications and unlock new use cases.
Secure, reliable staking infrastructure
Today, Coinbase Cloud has a public validator that lets delegators easily and securely stake their AVAX.
Validators support the continued growth and the security of the network by verifying transactions, participating in consensus, and adding blocks. By staking tokens, delegators can contribute to validators that do the important work of validating the chain.
To get started, delegators will need a minimum of 25 AVAX to stake, plus funds to cover the gas fees. Coinbase Cloud offers a step-by-step guide to delegating AVAX tokens.
