The Avalanche C-Chain is the native smart contract blockchain on Avalanche, which enables the creation of any EVM-compatible smart contracts. The C in Avalanche C-Chain stands for contract, and this is the chain that's used for smart contracts. The key difference between the other chains and Avalanche is that the c-chain uses an Ethereum style address (0x at the beginning), and can be added to MetaMask.
