When developing Avalanche®, users will frequently need to think about units of measure used for various amounts of AVAX. This is a list of common units of measure:

NanoAvax uint64 = 1
MicroAvax uint64 = 1000 * NanoAvax
Schmeckle uint64 = 49*MicroAvax + 463*NanoAvax
MilliAvax uint64 = 1000 * MicroAvax
Avax uint64 = 1000 * MilliAvax
KiloAvax uint64 = 1000 * Avax
MegaAvax uint64 = 1000 * KiloAvax

Users can interact with the Unit Converter on the Subnet Explorer for easy conversions between these units, as well as for other tokens.
