The whitepaper describes the new blockchain as:
Currently, Aptos (APT) has seen an increase of 109% in the last 7 days, reaching an all-time high of $8.67 after experiencing a low of $3.76 just a few days ago. At one point, the cryptocurrency was even up by 130%.
The Aptos blockchain utilizes a programming language called Move, which was initially developed for Diem, a crypto project that was previously undertaken by Meta but has since been abandoned.
The Aptos chain aims to further the original objective of Diem, which is to create a high-speed and scalable blockchain that is user-friendly and accessible to a wide range of individuals.
The Aptos ecosystem is experiencing a surge of activity, with a variety of projects and milestones emerging. One such example is Atomic Wallet, a globally-used self-hosted cryptocurrency wallet, that has recently announced its support for APT holders.
Furthermore, Flow, a blockchain platform created by the developers behind the renowned Ethereum-based game CryptoKitties, has adopted Jolteon, a coding protocol developed by the leaders from Aptos, showcasing the growing interest and acceptance of the Aptos ecosystem.
