Aptos Research, a "easier DYOR" platform from the creator of Cronos Research

Project Name / Organization:
Aptos Research

Becoming the largest DeFi and NFT Directory on Aptos including various tools and resources to provide easier “Do Your Own Research” and navigation through the Aptos ecosystem

Project description:
My name is Hajedan and I am owner and only developer of CronosResearch.com, currently largest directory of projects on Cronos with various tools and resources like RPC list or so far on Cronos unique NFT Analytics

Today, I have decided to bring this to Atpos, you can find me at @ResearchAptos on Twitter :slightly_smiling_face:

Launch will be as soon as I gather data about known projects, if you would like to see what to expect, you can check the current Cronos platform at the link at the bottom🤭

Aside of that there will be SOON open application form for listings so keep your eyes peeled open :eyes:

Milestones with Deliverables + Timeline:
Expected launch is in upcoming days for the directories, once all data about known projects will be gathered, including opening of the listing application form

Team Skills, Experience & Motivation:
One guy. That’s it. After running successfuly for 8 months Cronos Research with directory, tools, news and, most important, investigations about malicious projects, I have decided to expand to another chain after gathering the experience and knowledge.

Technical Architecture:
The Cronos Research platform runs mainly on standard backend database, while, for example, NFT Analytics or NFT Mint Stats run on top of marketplace API. There are plans for the future for more useful tools, yet it is understandable that it is hard given fact I run the platform solo, on my own funds.

Key Risks & Challenges:
In terms of risks, there is ZERO risk towards Aptos users as the platform WILL BE FREE TO USE, just as Cronos Research is.

In terms of challenges, main challenge is to keep an eye on ALL KNOWN PROJECTS, which is something I need to work with :slight_smile:

Main aspects of the platform:

NFT Directory - see all known projects at one place with the most vital information like launch dates, prices, mint states, social links and contract addresses

DeFi Directory - see all known projects at one place with the same information as above, including ability to filter by Security (Audit, KYC) or category (DEX, Marketplace etc.)

Investigations - based on the reports, expect Aptos Research to look deeply into the issue and not being afraid to pin point malicious projects, always containing propper tag about the state with description of the decissions

NFT Analytics - future plan to bring NFT Analytics, a long-term historical overview into the NFT project floor, sales, lisitngs or volume

News - mainly on Twitter, “just in time” news provided for the Aptos Community is terms of chain or projects

And much more, just depending on the utilisation of the platform :slight_smile:

I am looking forward at @ResearchAptos Twitter profile, coming soon. If you are curious what has to come, you are more than welcome to check out www.cronosresearch.com to have a sneak on what has to come :heart:


I’m checking it out right away. And I’m expecting the twitter link please.


Wow :hushed:

This also a nice and welcoming initiative on the network, hope to see you get all the necessary tools, equipment and info to get everything organized in place for the Aptos community :clap:


Sounds like good take as long as you stay authentic , transparent and focused with your research at all times, the communities will be glad.


Good luck . the community will be glad, put more effort in your research await the valid data


I must have forgotten the Twitter, it is @ResearchAptos

I have been currently building in the background, but the backend is right now fully ready to have first projects being filled :slight_smile:

It will not be an easy task, especially solo, but I believe once mainnet launches that I have gained enough experience of do’s & dont’s after being now nearly 9 months active with Cronos Research

Thank you!

I will try to do my best to bring the same level of service as with state of Cronos Research (@CROResearch) after nearly 9 months of experience, it will not be easy, especially with Aptos being sound for a while, but I am excited to learn more!

Just seen it, definitely interesting tool/platform that I was not aware of but brings interesting things. Even if used for Aptos Research or not, it can be used for the previous platform I have, so I appreciate you sharing about it! :blush:

First projects to be listed on Aptos Research in batch tomorrow, together with successful test of Crew3 community platform on Cronos Research.

The backend is currently fully ready for first projects to be listed with full information like social links, descriptions, and more, depending on the launch dates released by the separate projects.

Thank you very much for the initial support!

After 9 months of running Cronos Research solo, I am more than excited to bring the easier DYOR platform to Aptos finally!

Thank you for the update.
But why are you working solo in a full research institute?

To be honest, there are couple of things “why”:

1st: My personal trust issue, it is hard to find someone reliable who is abke to build with you when you never met the person in person and you rely on web3 connections. That way, I ran Cronos Research for nearly 10 months, just for the sake of being afraid someone mailicous destroying my work, after 10 months of what I built, doesn’t matter if people funds would be affected or not.

2nd: I actuall tried to reach couple of people about launch, however, wide mentality is (sadly) that everyone wants it’s own piece of pie, aka, no one wants to run this kind of a project in multiple people.

3rd: Money-free running. This means, running it individually, I know the aspect behind is passion rather money focus. This way, I can be 100% sure that doesn’t matter if positive or negative revenue (which would be based on banner ads), I can still run the development as I have a personal budget plan. Not much people are willing to run this kind of a platform for basically free/negative revenue :slight_smile:

4th: Legal, since the brand behind it is not a legal entity, I want to onboard new employees behind a “contract”, which would mean a safety for both me as an employer as well as for employees itself. Since the whole brand is so far ran on individual entity, this is some kind of an obstacle. Yes, I coudl run it in a “grey zone”, but better safe than sorry :slight_smile:

Hope it answered your question and I appreciate your posts! :slight_smile:

Checked out cronosresearch - definitely will utilize it for the research.
Following Aptos research on Twitter!
Great tool - keep updating, will be following
