Avalanche is a relatively new, multi-blockchain network that offers our users lightning-fast transaction times and low fees while maintaining a robust network. AVAX is the native cryptocurrency of the platform. More information on ShapeShift's integration with Avalanche can be found here.
Switching Between Networks

2. Click the Ethereum symbol at the top right hand side of the page and select Avalanche from the drop down menu. Switch back to Ethereum at any time by following the same process.
Note: The first time you switch to the Avalanche network you will need to approve the switching of networks on your wallet.
You can view your Ethereum and Avalanche accounts at anytime via the Accounts section of app.shapeshift.com.
