Avalanche is a blockchain that has been optimized to support not only Web3 games but also NFTs. The AVAX blockchain also has a unique technology which is known as Subnets. These subnets work like a custom blockchains that has been built on Avalanche, while also having custom rulesets! They can even use their own token instead of Avalanche’s native AVAX for purposes like paying network gas fees!

As a part of the deal that Ava Labs has made with Amazon, Ava Labs will be able to offer “Subnet deployment” as a service by using the AWS Marketplace. In short the meaning of the deal is that any company or organization will be able to enlist Ava Labs in order to launch a custom Subnet for themselves on the AWS platform.
