Aptos is a Layer 1 blockchain that uses the Move programming language. The cryptocurrency promises users increased scalability, reliability, security and usability.
The Aptos genesis occurred on October 12, 2022, with Aptos blockchain’s mainnet “Aptos Autumn” launched on October 17, 2022. The blockchain has raised millions of dollars from investors so far. Aptos is a Layer 1 blockchain built with a Rust-based programming language called Move. Its key features include a parallel execution engine, high-level security features and low transaction costs.
The Aptos blockchain is generating all this hype because of its intriguing past. The blockchain is based on the Diem blockchain initiative (from Meta) that was recently abandoned. Created by Diem developers, the Aptos crypto uses the programming language originally created for Diem. Its focus is on Diem’s original goal of creating a scalable, fast blockchain. In addition, it hopes to offer additional features that will make the crypto more accessible to average users.
