Router Protocol Integrates Avalanche Network to it’s Cross-Chain Protocol

About Avalanche

  1. Exchange chain or X-chain: This is used for creating and exchanging AVAX tokens and other digital assets on a peer-to-peer basis. It uses a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) mechanism to process transactions. The DAG data structure allows the network to process transactions in parallel. This system ensures high scalability.
  2. Contract chain or C-chain: This chain resolves the biggest bottlenecks of congestion and empowers Avalanche to conduct 4500 transactions per second as opposed to Ethereum’s 15 transactions per second. C-Chain is Avalanche’s default smart contract blockchain. This chain implements an instance of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), allowing coders to fork over EVM-compatible DApps. It is fully compatible with the programming language Solidity. Solidity is mainly used for writing smart contracts on the Ethereum network. The C-Chain also uses a modified Avalanche consensus mechanism called Snowman. The Snowman consensus protocol builds on the Avalanche consensus protocol but orders the transactions linearly. This is beneficial when you are dealing with smart contracts.
  3. Platform Chain or P-Chain: Simply put, P-chain is responsible for maintaining the Avalanche system. It is responsible for staking, validator coordination for different networks, and creating subnets.

Integration with Router Protocol

  1. As most of you know, Router has a built-in pathfinder algorithm that aggregates DEXes to find the best rates for cross-chain swaps. On the Avalanche side, we have plugged into Trader Joe and Pangolin — two of the most liquid DEXes on the network — to power cross-chain swaps. This allows us to support both transfers and swaps from day one.
  2. As of now, there is very little liquidity for WMATIC on Avalanche, which could pose potential problems. Router will be deploying its own version of WMATIC on the Avalanche network to foster this liquidity.
  1. Adding default token list.
  2. New DEX Integrations: Post mainnet launch, we have integrated Quickswap and Sushiswap on Polygon, Apeswap, and Sushiswap on BSC, with more DEX integrations under the wings.
