Avalanche Blockchain APIs

Avalanche Blockchain APIs

Avalanche is an open-source platform for launching decentralized applications and enterprise blockchain deployments in one interoperable, highly scalable ecosystem. AVAX is the native token of Avalanche.

Avalanche is unique in that it has three different smart chains under the hood. Each chain has a specific task allowing users that it was designed for. The X-chain creates and transacts tokens like its native currency AVAX. The C-Chain runs smart contracts similar to Ethereum. The P-chain allows the creation of standalone blockchains.

Let us take a quick look at the comparison of Avalanche with Bitcoin and Ethereum on the basis of some basic characteristics of the networks.


As we can observe, the Avalanche network is more efficient than the bitcoin and Ethereum blockchains in terms of the time taken to finalise a transaction, its throughput etc.

Bitquery has indexed the Avalanche C-chain Blockchain, and now you can use our APIs to query Avalance.

To get started, all you need to do is sign up on our Blockchain IDE and get your API keys!!

Avalanche Blocks

The total number of blocks produced in the network is around 9 million. The number of blocks produced has gone up from 369 in October 2020 to 1329173 in December 2021. You can get the number of blocks produced monthly using this query .

To get the latest blocks on the Avalanche network, you can use this query.

Avalanche Transactions

Avalanche has processed 63,737,089 transactions so far, with the highest number of transactions taking place in December 2021(20,927,323).

Gas analytics

The average gas cost is $0.5 to $1 for the Avalanche network can be found out using our Avalanche explorer.


The above data can be found using this query.

Avalanche Transfers

Avalanche has a total of 171329234 transfers with the month of December 2021 having the highest transfers of 51424789. Additionally, Avalanche has had over 1669080 unique receivers and 1513332 unique senders since the launch of the network.

You can get the monthly transfers using this query.

Avalanche Tokens

There are about 35721 unique currencies being traded on Avalanche. You can use this query to find details about different tokens details such as total sender, receiver, average transfer value, etc.

AVAX(Avalanche’s native token) is the most transferred currency on the network with about 40961526 transfers, followed by WAVAX and JOE.

DEXs on Avalanche

A total of 24552945 trades have been executed on the network by about 736k takers and 980 makers with the trade volume summing up to $65 billion. This query can be used to get monthly data about the volume and DEX trade count.

Avalanche DEX supported

Currently, we support more than 13 Avalanche DEXs and 100s other which you can query directly using their smart contract. You can use our DEX APis to get trading data using our GraphQL APIs.

Smart contracts

Avalanche network saw the smarts contract calls rise from about 14k in January 2021 to a whopping 166 million in December 2021. There were over 45k unique smart contracts in December 2021 and 530k unique callers on the network.

Querying address details

You can easily fetch details related to a particular address like the balance, currency sent and received, transactions etc using Bitquery. We have enabled Money Flow APIs on Avalanche, making it really easy to trace any address on the network. If you need to find the balance of an address all you need to do is search for that address in the Bitquery Explorer and you’ll get results like the following or you can run this query. Here we’ve taken “0x74dfcbedfdfe843a90b3e7d83837acf24d279593” for example.

Also, you can use this query to get the total currencies sent or received by a given address as given in the right column, using this query.

Our Explorer is a showcase of our APIs, you can use this guide to get started with our GraphQL APIs .

Tracing/Tracking on Avalanches Blockchain

We have also enabled our flagship product Coinpath, the money tracking APIs on Avalanche, making it really easy to track money on the network.

You can check out the following visualization as an example. Drag and drop the address and change the settings to get more in-depth transactions related to this address.


Avalanche is the first decentralized smart contracts platform built for the scale of global finance, with near-instant transaction finality. Claiming to have the fastest most secure cryptocurrency platform available, and having compatibility with Ethereum’s blockchain and its blockchain as well, Avalanche will be tough competition for Ethereum.
