Avalanche’s Partnership with Delloite
Avalanche has received a boost to its rally from its partnership with Delloite announcement. The statement highlights that the crypto network will collaborate with Delloite to build an efficient disaster-relief network on Avalanche’s blockchain.
Known as “Close As You Go,” the network will utilize the Avalanche ecosystem to improve FEMA funding accuracy, security, and speed. Emin Sire, Avalanche Labs founder, commented on the development. He stated that the new network offers local and state officials a fully immutable and low-cost decentralized system to empower grant funders and guide recipients in utilizing blockchain’s transparency to reduce waste, abuse, and fraud.
Moreover, the fast consensus and security by Avalanche network quickly processes and authorizes needed documents to improve federal disaster accuracy. He also added that Avalanche’s eco-friendly objectives match with Delloite as the crypto is a carbon-neutral network. Sirer also busted the claims that Avalanche will be slow like Ethereum amid increased adoption.
