What is Avalanche (AVAX)?

Avalanche is a decentralized, open-source blockchain with smart contract functionality. It has gotten a lot of traction due to its high speed and low costs.

Having said that, CoinSmart has taken several security measures to ensure user fund protection. These include – mandatory 2FA, withdrawal confirmation emails, cold storage & BitGo user funds insurance.
