What is Aptos?

Aptos (APT) is a layer-1 blockchain launched on October 19, 2022 by a team that includes several former Meta developers who worked on Facebook's stablecoin project, Diem. Aptos Labs raised $400 million in VC funding from firms including FTX Ventures, Jump Crypto and Coinbase Ventures.

It is a proof-of-stake (PoS) chain built upon the Move programming language, designed for smart contract development. Move is also the programming language used by Diem, which after much hype, unraveled due to regulatory backlash.

The Aptos development team, many of whom were core developers on the Diem project, have been working on APT for around 4 years, intending to make crypto transactions faster and cheaper.

The Aptos blockchain promises to handle up to 160,000 transactions per second (TPS). However, at launch it came under immediate scrutiny after falling well short of this figure with claims that it only handled around 4TPS.

In addition, concerns have been raised regarding the project token distribution, with core contributors, the Aptos foundation and investors receiving a large sum (49%) of the total APT supply.

Aptos (APT) is the 28th largest cryptocurrency in the world by market cap, valued at $2,712,384,935. The current price of Aptos is $16.82, which is -6.856% lower than yesterday.
