The Aptos Blockchain is a layer 1 blockchain designed for scalability, safety, reliability, and upgradeability. Its development has involved over 350 developers worldwide, who have created innovative solutions in consensus, smart contract design, system security, performance, and decentralization. The blockchain aims to provide a fundamental building block for bringing web3 to the masses, following the path of cloud infrastructure as a trusted, scalable, cost-efficient, and continually improving platform.
The Aptos blockchain’s natively integrated Move language provides fast and secure transaction execution, while the Move prover offers additional safeguards for contract invariants and behavior. This focus on security allows developers to better protect their software from malicious entities. The blockchain’s modular architecture design supports frequent and instant upgrades, while embedded on-chain change management protocols enable the rapid deployment of new technology innovations and support for new web3 use cases.
The upcoming second APT token airdrop, expected to be announced soon, will include over 5 million APT tokens. Users can participate by providing liquidity on the Tortuga Finance platform, which offers a decentralized exchange and liquidity provision service. This presents a unique opportunity for users to participate in the Aptos blockchain’s growth and earn rewards for their contributions.
The first airdrop was open until October 25, 2022, and users who completed an application for an Aptos Incentivized Testnet or minted an APTOS: ZERO testnet NFT were eligible to claim Aptos tokens. With over 20 million APT tokens up for grabs, early adopters have a significant opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a blockchain designed to evolve.
