Coinbase Cloud provides web3 APIs, services, and infrastructure to power the next generation of software builders. As part of our vision to empower developers building the future of web3, we are launching a suite of blockchain infrastructure solutions and services for the growing Avalanche ecosystem.
Avalanche is a high-speed smart contract platform with near-instant finality and EVM compatibility. Developers can deploy their Ethereum applications on Avalanche’s C-Chain or deploy custom-built blockchains as a subnet. Avalanche has seen accelerated growth in 2021 since its launch in 2020, reaching new highs in active addresses, transactions, and total value locked. A number of high-profile projects such as Curve, Aave, and DeFi Kingdoms expanded into Avalanche alongside native projects like Trader Joe, BENQI, and Crabada.
Coinbase Cloud is committed to supporting the Avalanche ecosystem, making it easier and faster for developers to build innovative applications and unlock new use cases.
Secure, reliable staking infrastructure
Today, Coinbase Cloud has a public validator that lets delegators easily and securely stake their AVAX.
Validators support the continued growth and the security of the network by verifying transactions, participating in consensus, and adding blocks. By staking tokens, delegators can contribute to validators that do the important work of validating the chain.
To get started, delegators will need a minimum of 25 AVAX to stake, plus funds to cover the gas fees. Coinbase Cloud offers a step-by-step guide to delegating AVAX tokens.
Those who want to run their own dedicated validators on Avalanche will be able to do so using our Participate product. Coinbase Cloud’s staking infrastructure is built to the highest security standards and offers 99% uptime guarantee, making it easy for anyone to spin up a validator in just a few steps — no coding required.
Empowering developers to build the next big Avalanche project
Coinbase Wallet SDK empowers developers to expand their app’s reach to millions of Coinbase users, providing easy access to the Avalanche ecosystem via Coinbase Wallet. Coinbase Wallet offers users built-in fiat onramps to buy AVAX from Coinbase, providing users an easy start with Avalanche.
Coinbase Wallet offers first-class support for Avalanche C-Chain and the Fuji testnet, as well as EVM-compatible subnets, ensuring that any EVM-compatible application runs seamlessly and reliably through Coinbase Wallet. The integration can be completed in minutes, with only a few lines of code. Developers can view Coinbase Wallet SDK documentation on the Coinbase Cloud website.
In addition, we are building our Query & Transact infrastructure to empower developers to easily access data from the Avalanche blockchain. Having an easy way to access data and submit transactions is the most fundamental step to building dapps such as wallets, exchanges, data aggregators, and blockchain analytics solutions. With Query & Transact, developers have reliable read/write access to data with a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
Once available, developers can also easily customize their Query & Transact read/write infrastructure via the Coinbase Cloud web interface to meet their needs. Using our web interface, developers can configure who can access the node infrastructure, and distribute their nodes across four geographic regions and two cloud providers to serve traffic globally with low latencies.
With Query & Transact and the Wallet SDK, Avalanche developers have a comprehensive suite of solutions to build and grow their crypto products.
