On our Avalanche-X, developers have access to the best of Ava Labs – our community, resources, and grant programs – to ensure they can maximize the impact of their applications.
The Denali test network is the last round of testing before launching the Avalanche mainnet. Denali will feature many new components, tools, and libraries for developers.
The Everest test network is a fully-featured version of the Avalanche network that will act as the final phase of testing before the launch of Avalanche’s mainnet.

Here are some upcoming enhancements planned for mainnet launch:
Fees are essential for incentivizing validators and for DDoS protection across all blockchains. Avalanche makes it possible for validators to extract their own customized fees.
Validators can leverage their own incentivization scheme and opt-out of subnets that they are not interested in validating.
Subnets manage their own assets, which enables Avalanche users to easily discover assets on the network.
Avalanche takes a functional approach to sharding, where assets with independent use cases are validated by their own participants in something called "subnets."
Non-fungible tokens are awesome. We will have full support and a registry for discovering NFT asset classes.
Avalanche's subnets use the same underlying protocol for consensus on their transactions enabling atomic commitments–where a set changes can be applied as a single operation.
Avalanche enables stakeholders to determine key economic parameters of the system, such as the minimum staking amount and reward rate.
Avalanche gains its performance advantages due to its underlying Avalanche consensus protocol, which can be made even faster.
