The cryptocurrency market has had a tough week. Almost $ 300 billion in total market value was wiped out in days after investors pocketed large sums of money following recent record highs. But one crypto in particular has escaped this trend. Avalanche’s avax token has risen more than 20% from a week ago, with bitcoin losing around 9% and its direct rival, ether, 11%. Cryptocurrencies from the Cardano and Solana networks fell about 13%, according to CoinMarketCap.
The catalyst for Avalanche was developer Ava Labs’ partnership with audit firm Deloitte, which CEO Emin Gün Sirer unveiled on Twitter on Wednesday, November 17. Avax hit an all-time high of around $ 110 on the Binance Exchange on Thursday. “Ava Labs is delighted to announce its partnership with Deloitte to build more efficient disaster relief platforms using the Avalanche blockchain,” said Emin Gün Sirer, founder of Avalanche in a tweet.

“This effort combines the speed, resilience and adaptability of Avalanche and the knowledge of Deloitte’s Fortune 100 companies,” Emin Gün Sirer tweeted.
