The Aptos blockchain is a solution to the challenges faced in current blockchain usage such as outages, high costs, low throughput limits, and security concerns. The blockchain has been developed with a focus on scalability, safety, reliability, and upgradeability and offers innovations in consensus, smart contract design, system security, performance, and decentralization.
The use of the Move language for fast and secure transaction execution is a key feature of the Aptos blockchain along with the Move prover for additional safeguards for smart contract behavior. The data model of the Aptos blockchain enables flexible key management and hybrid custodial options for a safer user experience.
The pipelined and modular approach to transaction processing allows for high throughput and low latency while supporting atomicity with arbitrarily complex transactions. The modular architecture design supports frequent and instant upgrades and the internal sharding capability provides potential for horizontal throughput scalability.
The Aptos blockchain aims to make blockchain infrastructure a trusted, scalable, cost-efficient, and continually improving platform for the web3 era.
