During its recent Avalanche Summit in Barcelona, the scalable blockchain platform made a series of exciting revelations. First, Avalanche announced its plans to boost its DeFi ecosystem with new upgrades. Ava Labs Head of Product Nick Mussallem revealed Avalanche’s plans to launch its own wallet application, called Core.

Mussallem said in a statement, “Core is not just a wallet. It’s a curated Web3 operating system that combines secure wallet architecture with technology not found in any other wallet.” Furthermore, the Core wallet will facilitate a direct link between its users and other decentralized applications on Avalanche’s network.

Lemonade Foundation Partners With Avalanche For Climate Change

Next, one of the updates from Avalanche’s community this week emerged from the Lemonade Foundation. In fact, the non-profit platform plans to provide security for farmers from climate change. To achieve this goal, Lemonade announced the formation of the Lemonade Crypto Climate Coalition. Furthermore, the coalition will run as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO). It will build and distribute weather insurance to subsistence farmers and livestock keepers in emerging markets. Additionally, Avalanche is a key player in the coalition.

Avalanche Bridge to Add Native Support for Bitcoin

In a recent tweet it shared, Avalanche announced that the Avalanche Bridge would increase support for the Bitcoin network. Also, Avalanche will allow Bitcoin users to safely move their BTC to the Avalanche public blockchain. And these users can now deploy their BTC on Avalanche’s DeFi ecosystem.  Additionally, Avalanche’s team intends to release this support in Q2. As a result, Bitcoin will join Ethereum as a supported network on the Avalanche Bridge.

The Avalanche Bridge holds a lot of potential for the DeFi space with its plans to support Bitcoin. Speaking of the bridge, Avalanche’s Head of Product, Mussallem, said, “Avalanche’s unique architecture makes it an ideal on-chain home for institutions who demand high-performance, and I believe opening the rails for Bitcoin will open their eyes to even greater possibilities.”
