AVAX boost as Colony Lab launches ecosystem initiatives
Colony Lab, which powers early-stage projects and communities via decentralized fundraising and Avalanche (AVAX) rewards, revealed it acquired over 535K AVAX tokens throughout the bear market. These were strategically bought via a DCA investment strategy, with each token purchased at the average price of $16.5.
AVAX price at the time of writing was $21.06, up more than 117% in the past 30 days and 78% up over the past year. At current prices, the total boost is worth over $10 million.
According to an announcement by Colony Lab, the Validator Program will be anchored by 300,000 AVAX, while the Sustainability Program is set to unleash 200,000 AVAX.
With a total of over $14 million in its treasury, Colony also plans to invest in its portfolio Colony Avalanche Index (CAI). The platform will distribute fees generated from this yield-bearing index and the validator program to CLY stakers.
