Avalanche is a blockchain network similar to Ethereum, for executing smart contracts and running decentralized applications. It is one of the largest competitors to Ethereum right now, due to its high transaction output of 6,500 transactions per second.

Avalanche is incredibly fast, as it is actually three blockchains rolled into one. Each of these chains have a different purpose, making the overall network much faster. Avalanche has also built an Ethereum bridge, enabling Ethereum-based dApps such as Sushi Swap to make use of Avalanche Network’s low fee and fast transaction speeds.
