Primary Network (Avalanche)

The Avalanche blockchain ecosystem’s Primary Network is a unique subnetwork (subnet). All members of custom subnets — or blockchains built on the Avalanche platform — must also be members of the Primary Network, which requires a stake of 2000 AVAX coins. The primary network’s main purpose is to validate, secure, and facilitate the various uses of the Avalanche network’s Exchange Chain (X-Chain), Platform Chain (P-Chain), and Contract Chain (C-Chain) — three independent networks responsible for different tasks on Avalanche.
