Sounds dangerous :) its going away from PoW from what i know, so nothing good for bitcoin.

No, Avalanche doesn't affect consensus, because is pre-consensus. It improves 0-conf safety, which is needed for adoption. Forfeits are great, but only useful for big purchases.

Technically Avalanche is good but I'm little skeptical since it can introduce some new economic tendencies.

I'm excited about Avalanche. Imagine sending funds to an exchange and being able to trade imidiately. This is a game changer!

Any date about implementation? Are other teams working in other pre-consensus systems?

0-confirmations accepted on exchanges is not new. XVC had that on Poloniex about 2 years back.

See my replies to @Rozjemca35 above (and the second video above) for explanation of why PoS is NOT being discussed as part of Avalanche pre-consensus protocol.

If avalanche is soft-fork, can the pre-consensus pow be replaced with pos also as a soft fork?

Do you mean that instead of the miners of the last 100 blocks, the pre-consensus group will be sustituted be coin stackers? Will be more complicated, you need to enforce them to pay if dishonest.
