This Week in Avalanche, Nov 19 2020

Avalanche News
  • Apricot: The first major upgrade to Avalanche was announced. Key improvements include verifiable pruning, epochs, freezable asset support and Avalanche Native Asset (ANT) ERC-20 support.

  • Avalanche Staking & Delegation Proposal by Nicholas Lemaitre. The proposal asks if we should decrease the minimum required AVAX to stake (currently 2000) and if we should increase the minimum delegation fee (currently 2%).

Asset Layer (X-Chain)
DApp Layer (C-Chain)
  • You can transfer non-AVAX assets between the X-Chain and C-Chain thanks to the AvalancheJS v3.0.5 release. N.B. This is not available on the web wallet yet.

  • Avascan added support for the C-Chain
