What Is Aptos(APT)?

Aptos is a Layer 1 blockchain built with safety and user experience in mind, enabling developers to build scalable, future-proof applications. It was designed with scalability, safety, reliability, and upgradeability as key principles, to address these challenges. The Aptos blockchain has been developed over the past three years by over 350+ developers across the globe. It offers new and novel innovations in consensus, smart contract design, system security, performance, and decentralization. 

The Aptos vision is to deliver a blockchain that can bring mainstream adoption to web3 and empower an ecosystem of decentralized applications to solve real-world user problems. Our mission is to advance the state-of-the-art in blockchain reliability, safety, and performance by providing a flexible and modular blockchain architecture. This architecture should support frequent upgrades, fast adoption of the latest technology advancements, and first-class support for new and emerging use cases.

What Makes Aptos Unique?

  1. Fast and secure execution along with simple auditability and mechanical analyzability via a new smart contract programming language, Move. Move originated with the predecessor to the Aptos blockchain and continues to progress with the evolution of this project.
  2. Extremely high throughput and low latency through a batched, pipelined, and parallelized approach to transaction processing.
  3. Novel parallel transaction processing that efficiently supports atomicity with arbitrarily complex transactions through Block-STM, unlike existing parallel execution engines that require upfront knowledge of data locations to be read and written.
  4. Optimizations for performance and decentralization via rapid, stake-weight validator set rotation and reputation tracking.
  5. Upgradeability and configurability as first-class design principles to embrace new use cases and the latest technology.
  6. Modular designs that enable rigorous component level testing along with appropriate threat modeling and seamless deployment, all ensuring highly secure and reliable operations.
  7. Horizontal throughput scalability while preserving decentralization, where sharding is a first-class concept exposed to users and native to the programming and data model.

What Is the Roadmap of Aptos(APT)?

2022 Q1 (March 15th) — Developer testnet launch

  • Work with strategic partners and the web3 developer community to gather feedback and make improvements with respect to the Move developer experience and Move language

2022 Q2 — Incentivized testnet launch

  • A larger and mainnet-like test playground for strategic partners and web3 developers to build
  • Work with the node operator community to onboard and build expertise on operating the decentralized network together
  • Start a bug bounty to improve the developer experience, node operations, and address infrastructure issues
  • Provide incentive alignment for all participants that help secure the network

2022 Q3 — Mainnet launch

2022 Q4–2023 Q1 — Deploy the next major release to Aptos mainnet with the next set of significant features

Aptos(APT) Coin Utility 

The Aptos blockchain will be owned, operated, and governed by a broad and diverse community. A native Aptos token will be used for transaction and network fees, governance voting on protocol upgrades and on-chain/off-chain processes, and securing the blockchain via a proof-of-stake model.

  • Transaction and network fees. All Aptos transactions have a gas unit price (specified in Aptos tokens) that allows validators to prioritize the highest value transactions in the network. Moreover, at every stage of the pipelined model, there are multiple opportunities to discard low-value transactions (allowing the blockchain to operate efficiently when at system capacity). Over time, network fees will be deployed to ensure that the costs of using the Aptos blockchain are proportionate to the real-world costs of hardware deployment, maintenance, and node operation. Furthermore, developers will have the opportunity to design applications with different cost trade-offs between compute, storage, and networking.
  • Network governance. On-chain governance can, over time, be deployed across the entire upgrade management process. As an example: 1. Token holders vote on-chain about transitioning to a new quantum-resistant signature scheme. 2. Developers implement and verify the new signature scheme and create a new software release. 3. Validators upgrade their software to the new release.Token holders vote on-chain to enable the new signature scheme, the on-chain configuration is updated, and the change takes effect.
  • Proof-of-stake consensus. To participate in transaction validation on the Aptos blockchain, validators must have a minimum required amount of staked Aptos tokens. The staked amounts proportionately affect the 2f + 1 stake weighted PoAv during transaction dissemination as well as vote weights and leader selection during block metadata ordering. Validators decide on the split of rewards between themselves and their respective stakers. Stakers can select any number of validators in which to stake their tokens for a pre-agreed reward split. At the end of every epoch, validators and their respective stakers will receive their rewards via the relevant on-chain Move modules

How To Stake APT Crypto on Aptos?

The Aptos staking module defines a capability that represents ownership. 

The OwnerCapability resource can be used to control the stake pool. Three personas are supported:

  • Owner
  • Operator
  • Voter

Using this owner-operator-voter model, a custodian can assume the owner persona and stake on the Aptos blockchain and participate in the Aptos governance. This model allows delegations and staking services to be built as it separates the account that is control of the funds from the other accounts (operator, voter), hence allows secure delegations of responsibilities.

How Validation Works on the Aptos Blockchain?

The following is a high-level description of how validation works on the Aptos blockchain:

Throughout the duration of an epoch, the following flow of events occurs several times (thousands of times):

  • A validator leader is selected by a deterministic formula based on the validator reputation determined by validator's performance (including whether the validator has voted in the past or not) and stake. This leader selection is not done by voting.
  • The selected leader sends a proposal containing the collected quorum votes of the previous proposal and the leader's proposed order of transactions for the new block.
  • All the validators from the validator set will vote on the leader's proposal for the new block. Once consensus is reached the block can be finalized. Hence the actual list of votes to achieve consensus is a subset of all the validators in the validator set. This leader validator is rewarded. Rewards are given only to the leader validators, not to the voter validators.
  • The above flow repeats with the selection of another validator leader and repeating the steps for the next new block. Rewards are given at the end of the epoch.
