Avalanche cryptocurrency has surged in the last couple of days, taking it into the top ten list briefly by market value, surpassing Dogecoin and Shiba Inu. This comes after creator Ava Labs signed a deal related to improvement of US disaster-relief funding, with Deloitte.
According to a post from Ava Labs, the ‘Close As You Go platform leverages the Avalanche blockchain to improve security, speed and accuracy of Federal Emergency Management Agency funding which will help state and local government officials streamline and simplify disaster reimbursement applications.
The Avalanche Foundation in September said it had raised $230 million from private sale of tokens with participants including Polychain and Three Arrows Capital.
