Aptos’ (APT) stated vision is to deliver a blockchain that can bring mainstream adoption to Web3 and empower an ecosystem of decentralized applications to solve real-world user problems. To that end the Aptos blockchain was developed with scalability, security, dependability and adaptability as its core principles. 

A team of over 350 developers worked on the blockchain project for three years, introducing new concepts in consensus, smart contract design, system security, performance and decentralization.

What is Aptos and what are its unique features?

The Aptos blockchain incorporates and internally employs the Move language for rapid and secure transaction execution. The Move prover, a formal verification tool for Move, a new smart contract programming language, adds an extra layer of protection, ensuring contract invariants and behaviors remain intact.

The Aptos data model also offers flexible key management and hybrid custodial choices. Combined with transaction transparency prior to confirmation and practical light client protocols, this setup aims to enhance user safety and trustworthiness.

To achieve exceptional throughput and minimal latency, the Aptos blockchain adopts a pipelined and modular approach across crucial transaction processing stages. This approach concurrently manages transaction distribution, block metadata ordering, parallel transaction execution, batch storage, and ledger certification. By fully utilizing available physical resources, enhancing hardware efficiency and enabling highly parallel execution, this approach optimizes performance.

Additionally, the Aptos blockchain claims to support atomicity, even with highly complex transactions, resulting in increased throughput, reduced latency for real-world applications and simplified development.

The modular architecture of the blockchain ensures client adaptability and facilitates frequent and instant upgrades. Furthermore, to expedite the deployment of new technological innovations and accommodate emerging Web3 use cases, Aptos incorporates embedded on-chain change management protocols.

Aptos has said that it is exploring future initiatives to scale beyond individual validator performance. Its modular design and parallel execution engine allow for internal sharding of validators, while homogeneous state sharding holds the promise of horizontal throughput scalability without introducing additional complexity for node operators.

Founders of Aptos

Aptos Labs was founded by CEO Mo Shaikh and CTO Avery Ching, both of whom formerly worked at Meta Platforms and had years of experience as a senior developer and engineer in the blockchain industry.

APT and the Aptos Network

APT is the native cryptocurrency on the Aptos blockchain and has an initial total supply of 1 billion tokens and as of early October had a market capitalization of $1.1bn with a 24-hour trading volume of $191.04m.

The allocation of APT tokens is divided into four categories; community (51.02%), core contributors (19%), foundation (16.5%) and investors (13.48%).

Within the community allocation, approximately 80% of tokens are under the Aptos Foundation, while the remainder is held by Aptos Labs. These holdings are earmarked to support the growth of the community and Aptos Foundation initiatives. Notably, the residual portion will be gradually unlocked on a monthly basis over the span of the next 10 years.

Governance

Aptos employs an on-chain governance system that allows its members to initiate and participate in proposals aimed at streamlining the expenses associated with blockchain upgrades. The Aptos on-chain governance encompasses the following areas of proposal consideration:

  • Alterations to blockchain parameters: This may include adjustments to parameters such as epoch duration, as well as modifications to the minimum required and maximum allowable validator stakes.
  • Amendments to core blockchain code: Proposals may be put forth to enact changes in the fundamental code governing the Aptos blockchain.
  • Enhancements to Aptos framework modules: Proposals can also revolve around the enhancement or bug-fixing of existing Aptos Framework modules, with the aim of bolstering the overall functionality of the Aptos blockchain.
  • Deployment of New Framework Modules: Additionally, proposals may encompass the deployment of new framework modules, allocated within the address range from 0x1 to 0xa.
