About Ava Labs
In early 2021, Ava Labs launched the Avalanche Rush DeFi incentive program, which sparked developer interest and led to the growth of an active ecosystem that now has over 500 decentralized apps available. Some of the projects that were built on it include Chainlink, SushiSwap, Tether, Circle, and The Graph. The network has grown to have more than 1,200 validator nodes staking tokens.
As Avalanche became more popular, its corresponding AVAX coin began to catch the attention of crypto users — especially once the Avalanche Bridge, which allows users to easily move assets between Ethereum and Avalanche, and the Avalanche Wallet became available.
