The Avalanche developer tools set has been launched by Coinbase Cloud.

    The Avalanche ecosystem stands to gain from three tremendous developments announced this week with Coinbase Cloud’s integration, BTC support, and UST trading.

    Web3 developer hub Coinbase Cloud has added a suite of tools to support development on the Avalanche blockchain and smart contract platform.

    As part of the new support features, Coinbase Cloud is running an Avalanche (AVAX) public validator node. This allows Avalanche network participants to stake their AVAX tokens with Coinbase Cloud and delegate power for validating transactions on the blockchain.

    This will enable BTC holders to transfer their coins onto the Avalanche network and participate in decentralized finance (DeFi) activities there.

    Co-founder and COO of Avalanche Kevin Sekniqi summed up the BTC integration with Avalanche in a March 23 tweet stating “DeFi on Avalanche is about to get a whole lot more orange.”

    This new integration comes as the Avalanche Summit is taking place in Barcelona, Spain where, in addition to the Coinbase Wallet and Bitcoin integrations, the Terra (LUNA) team also announced that its UST stablecoin is now tradable on Avalanche. All three developments this week stand to provide more value to the Avalanche ecosystem over time through investments and new applications.

    AVAX has dropped 3% over the past 24 hours and is currently down 42.3% from its Nov. 21, 2021, all-time high of $145 according to CoinGecko.
