Blockworks Research

Avalanche has introduced proposal ACP-77, which would drastically lower the barrier to entry to launch a dedicated blockchain, while imposing a continuous fee mechanism that subnets would pay to the P-Chain. By performing a scenario analysis of different dedicated blockchain solutions, we conclude that ACP77 would hypothetically make Avalanche subnets as cost-effective as Celestia-based rollups while providing additional liveness guarantees and native interoperability.
