Avalanche AVAX/USD is a smart contracts platform that runs on top of blockchain technology and has been one of the main Ethereum ETH/USD rivals.

The mainnet was originally launched in September of 2020, and since then, the token has seen a heightened level of utility as well as value.

The $290 million incentive program as a catalyst for growth

On February 28, we covered how the Wirex payment system enabled its 4.5 million users to access Avalanche (AVAX).

The Avalanche Foundation made an announcement about what is known as the “Multiverse,” which is essentially a $290 million incentive program that will help develop subnets for the network.

A subnet is a dynamic set of validators that are working together to achieve consensus on the state of a set of blockchains. Each blockchain is validated by one subnet, and a subnet can arbitrarily validate many blockchains. 

This initiative will begin by supporting subnets that are dedicated to blockchain gaming, DeFi, NFTs, and institutional use-cases.

One of the projects is intended to focus on making a horizontally integrated blockchain, which is built for institutional DeFi with embedded KYC functionality.

This announcement, as well as the overall development, will lead to an increased utility of the AVAX token, which will lead to its overall growth in value.
