Aptos is a layer 1 chain similar to projects like Solana, Near Protocol, Mina Protocol, etc., but when the market gradually shifts and considers modular blockchain as a new form for the future, Aptos still follows the path of Monolithic Blockchain. .
Monolithic Blockchain (Monolithic Blockchain) when all the issues surrounding a transaction such as consensus, execution, storage and data availability take place on the blockchain.
Modular Blockchain is when these processes are separated and handled in different places. For example, the model of Layer 2 and Ethereum when execution takes place on Layer 2, the rest is consensus and stored on Ethereum itself, it is Modular Blockchain.
