Quick Take

  • Avalanche is one the fastest growing L1 in the crypto space due to its EVM compatibility, low fees and latency, as well as its fast transaction finality 
  • To further bolster the scalability of the Avalanche blockchain, Ava Labs introduced the concept of subnets, where unique ecosystems in the Avalanche network can be operated by different sets of validators
  • Crabada, a popular game on Avalanche, recently launched its own native subnet on the Fuji testnet with its own set of validators
  • Subnets are useful for scaling Avalanche because they allow a select subset of validators from the primary network to validate their own set of blockchains
