Avalanche (AVAX) Team Explains Why Subnets Are Better Than Other Scalability Solutions
Smart Contracts Platform Avalanche (AVAX) Reveals Advantages of its Subnets Solution Over Competitors’ Scale Design
In 2022, Avalanche (AVAX) powerful programmatic blockchain introduced its Subnets mechanism to scale the main network and improve performance and usability. Here’s how Subnets tackle the most dangerous dApps bottlenecks.
User-friendly, independent, “out-of-the-box”: why are subnets special?
In the latest Twitter thread, the Avalanche team decided to discuss the most crucial benefits of its Subnets module. Technically, subnets should be considered as the autonomous networks connected to Avalanche’s C-chain.
You may have heard that subnets are how #Avalanche scales infinitely, and subnets are the future of the web3 infrastructure. But how? Why? What’s next?
Let’s take a closer look at how they work and how they solve some of Web3’s biggest challenges: 🧵⬇️https://t.co/awBnK70Lti

As such, Avalanche’s subnets can be customized to meet the requirements of this or that DeFi protocol, on-chain game, NFT marketplace and so on.
Each subnet uses a dedicated blockspace: unlike first-gen scalability solutions for mainstream dApps, they don’t compete for the mainnet’s compute resources.
It enables users to protect the entire Avalanche (AVAX) network from outages, collapses and rate spikes, even during periods of high transaction pressure.
Multiverse program starts aboard Avalanche-centric dApps
Subnets are also a “turnkey” technical foundation for decentralized applications: the new dApp can be deployed in hours, not days, as Avalanche representatives emphasize.
That said, the protocol will increase the visibility of the Avalanche Subnets brand. The Multiverse program is launched to bring onboard all applications interested in building on subnets.
To apply for the program, developers need to fill out a specific form. Also, the Avalanche team is teasing the release of new resources and tools for Subnets-focused engineers.
As previously described by U.Today, Avalanche’s subnets were criticized by Polygon’s COO.
