Aptos is a newer-generation Layer 1 blockchain and smart contract platform launched in 2022. Aptos has a modular structure designed for scalability, high throughput, and low latency. This approach is intended to allow for additional flexibility and upgradeability, with the ultimate goal of a more robust user experience.


Aptos employs the Move programming language, which they claim allows for faster and more secure transactions, providing additional protection for smart contracts against potential bad actors.


The Aptos network is secured by a proof-of-stake consensus model, whereby network participants may stake their APT tokens into a validator, thus earning rewards for helping to process transactions, mint new blocks, and bolster the network.
