Avalanche Has Just Launched $290 Million Multiverse Incentive Program

The Avalanche Foundation recently announced the launch of a $290 million (approximately 4 million AVAX) “Multiverse” incentive program to support the growth of subnets on its network. Join Avaxholic as we learn about this program in today’s article.

Avalanche Ecosystem Overview

Avalanche is the fastest smart contracts platform in the blockchain industry, as measured by time-to-finality, and has the most validators securing its activity of any proof-of-stake protocol. Avalanche is blazingly fast, low cost, and green. Any smart contract-enabled application can outperform its competition by deploying on Avalanche.

What Is Avalanche’s Multiverse Incentive Program?

The Avalanche Foundation has launched Avalanche Multiverse, a budget of $290M (up to 4M AVAX) for incentive program focused on accelerating the adoption and growth of its novel “subnet” functionality, which enables a rich ecosystem of scalable app-specific blockchains.

Initially, the program is focused on supporting new ecosystems including, but not limited to blockchain-enabled Gaming, DeFi, NFT, and institutional use cases..

Multiverse Incentive Program

Avalanche Multiverse intends to be divided into at least six phases to support future cohorts of projects participating in the program, and is not constrained to a defined period of time.

Here are the activities that will happen during the program:

  • Avalanche Multiverse will bring a DeFi Kingdoms specific Subnet or ‘appchain’ with a combined maximum of $15M of incentives for $AVAX and $CRYSTAL, a new Avalanche-native token created by DeFi Kingdoms to complement its existing $JEWEL token. Details surrounding the allocation of rewards will be forthcoming.
  • To enable regulated institutions to leverage the power of Subnets to access DeFi primitives at scale and accelerate the institutional adoption of DeFi, Ava Labs (a core developer of the Avalanche client) will collaborate with the Aave Companies, Golden Tree Asset Management, Wintermute, Jump Crypto, Valkyrie, Securitize and others to build the first horizontally-integrated blockchain specifically engineered for Institutional DeFi with native KYC functionality. 

This may seem contradictory, as part of DeFi’s benefits come from the fact that it’s anonymous and permissionless. However, Securifying CEO Carlos Domingo believes that implementing KYC will remove a major barrier to institutional DeFi adoption.

Blockchain-enabled Gaming And NFT

If you have been following events on Avalanche, you can see that there have been quite a few gaming projects (Crabada, Talecraft,…) launched, using NFTs as items, breed, or stake for rewards. Among them is DeFi Kingdoms, a Play to Earn MMORPG built upon a strong DeFi protocol from this Multiverse Project. It features rare and unique NFTs with built-in utility, to create an immersive and beautiful online world in the incredibly nostalgic form of fantasy pixel art.


This mean that NFT ecosystem on Avalanche will launch more Marketplace and products, creating places to support Artists to deploy NFT, and gamer to share their collections.


There is significant demand by regulated financial institutions to participate in the growth of decentralized finance, so DeFi will increasingly become the foundation of the global financial system. During the Multiverse Incentive Program, Ava Labs will create a space for institutions to adopt DeFi with the helping builders.


Avalanche On-Chain

Here are the milestones of funded projects on Avalanche:


Avalanche Multiverse (with the highest budget of $290M) is a separate initiative from Avalanche Rush, an ongoing DeFi incentive program to support digital assets and applications launched on Avalanche’s default smart contract chain, the ‘C-Chain’.

Avalanche Rush kickstarted the second wave of DeFi growth on Avalanche. Since launching on August 18, 2021 total value locked (“TVL”) on Avalanche has increased from $312M to almost $16B, with unique addresses growing from 137K to 2.2M, and transactions soaring from 4M to 112M.

The Blizzard program, with a budget of $200M, is another driving force for Avalanche’s sustainable development

Why Invest In Subnets Growth?

Subnets enable anyone to easily create powerful, reliable, and secure permissioned or permissionless networks with custom implementations. And Avalanche’s subnet with KYC infrastructure, will be a massive step forward for institutional adoption.

Crucially, Subnets remain natively integrated with the broader Avalanche ecosystem, don’t compete with other projects for network resources, and are available in an unlimited supply.

More Avalanche Multiverse projects will be announced soon. Projects interested in participating in the program should complete the following form



While Subnets will be the next growth engine in crypto, we can look forward to Avalanche bringing more institutional partners into the permissioned ecosystem and working within future regulatory frameworks to utilize decentralization ledger technology.
