Avalanche rolls out Durango update and Teleporter for better network synergy

The move is a boon for Web3 developers as it facilitates smoother interactions across different EVM chains within the Avalanche network.

Avalanche rolls out Durango update and Teleporter for better network synergy

The Avalanche blockchain has taken a significant step forward with the launch of its latest Durango upgrade, coupled with the release of Teleporter.

Teleporter is a groundbreaking tool aimed at bolstering communication within its unique subnet ecosystem. It is powered by the innovative Avalanche Warp Messaging (AWM) and integrated into the C-Chain, seeking to unify the network’s application-specific chains.

This move is designed to address and rectify any fragmentation issues within the ecosystem, thereby streamlining operations and enhancing user experience.

The enhanced communication tool stands out by offering Web3 developers a simplified and comprehensive framework, meticulously reviewed to manage the complexities of AWM’s signing and verification processes.

This development is particularly beneficial for developers, as it facilitates seamless interactions with contracts across different EVM-compatible chains within the Avalanche network. It would notably improve the efficiency of developing decentralised applications (dApps) on the platform.

The Vice President of Platform Engineering at Ava Labs, Patrick O’Grady, emphasised the significance of this advancement, stating:

“Teleporter wraps this new functionality in an EVM-compatible interface that Solidity developers can use to trigger arbitrary contract invocation

Addressing network cohesion

The launch of Teleporter follows closely on the heels of the Durango upgrade, which was rigorously tested on the Fuji Testnet before its successful deployment on the mainnet. 

This tool is strategically designed to ensure greater cohesion among the network’s subnets, thereby addressing and mitigating fragmentation issues within the Avalanche ecosystem. 

Furthermore, Teleporter facilitates the easy sharing of price feed data for tokens and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) across different subnets, enhancing the overall functionality and user experience within the Avalanche platform.

The need for such advancements became particularly evident following a recent incident where the Avalanche blockchain experienced a temporary outage, halting transactions for about two hours. 

This disruption was attributed to a mempool management bug, which was identified following a new inscription wave. The incident led to a temporary 3.7% drop in the price of $AVAX, the native token of the Avalanche platform. 

However, the network resumed block finalisation two hours after the outage. This was achieved via a prompt software update that rectified the excessive data exchange between validator nodes.

Market response and prospects for AVAX

In the aftermath of these developments and the network’s recovery, the $AVAX token has seen a notable increase in value, rising by over 3.5% in the past 24 hours. 

This positive market response can be attributed to the platform’s innovative “stake to earn” initiative, which incentivises users to secure the Avalanche network by staking their tokens. By doing so, they can earn rewards and contribute to the network’s decentralisation and security.

The technical analysis of $AVAX also shows growing investor confidence which indicates potential for a significant breakout. Currently trading around $42.32, if $AVAX can surpass the critical $43 resistance level, it could pave the way for a substantial increase in value. 

Analysts predict a potential upside of 35% towards the $60 mark in the medium to long term, buoyed by positive indicators such as the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Chaikin Money Flow (CMF). Both of them suggest strong buying pressure and underlying bullish momentum.

However, traders should stay wary of price volatility, as indicated by the wide Bollinger Bands, which were moving further away from each other at press time.
