Avalanche benefits from a $230 million investing round
Avalanche (AVAX) is a layer-one protocol that has been gaining traction in 2021 thanks to its low fee environment and the launch of the “Avalanche Rush” incentive program, which has attracted investors and liquidity from the Ethereum (ETH) network.

Celer Network sees a surge from its bridge to Arbitrum
Celer Network is a layer-two scaling solution that uses off-chain transaction handling to help to increase the scalability and the transaction throughput of its network.
