The Primary Network validates Avalanche's built-in blockchains: Platform Chain, Exchange Chain, and Contracts Chain. All members of all Subnets must also be a member of the Primary Network. In order to become a member of the Primary Network, one must stake some AVAX tokens.

For additional information bout Subnets please read the following article.
