The colossal crash of Terraform Labs’ tokens has fueled a bearish sentiment among market participants. Analysts have evaluated altcoins like Solana, Avalanche, Polkadot and NEAR Protocol and predicted that these assets could wipe out their gains. 

Avalanche, an Ethereum-killer blockchain, has witnessed a large number of updates in 2022. The team is set to add support for subnets, another key upgrade in the protocol and announced, 

Over the coming weeks, there will be a series of resources and tools shared for developers and teams to start building your own fully-customisable Subnets. There’s no barrier to getting started building with Avalanche Subnets.

After establishing itself as a cost-effective alternative for music NFTs and decentralized applications, NEAR was hit by a blood bath. Analysts have predicted a further crash, with a 40% drop in Solana, Avalanche, Polkadot and NEAR protocol as Bitcoin price drops below the key psychological level at $30,000.
