Aptos is a Layer 1 blockchain that utilizes a unique smart contract programming language called Move. Developed by the engineers behind Diem (formerly known as Facebook's blockchain project), Move is a Rust-based language. The goal of Aptos is to bring mainstream adoption to web3 and enable an ecosystem of DApps to solve real-world problems. The blockchain's Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism allows for a theoretical transaction throughput of over 150,000 transactions per second through parallel execution. This is significantly higher than Ethereum's mainnet, which can process around 12 to 15 transactions per second.
This high throughput is made possible by the use of a parallel execution engine (Block-STM) and a Byzantine Fault-Tolerant (BFT) PoS consensus mechanism. Unlike traditional blockchains that process transactions sequentially, Aptos processes all transactions simultaneously and validates them afterwards. Transactions that fail are either re-executed or aborted, thanks to the blockchain's software transactional memory libraries, which detect and manage conflicts.
Aptos is also built using Move, a new smart contract programming language that offers advantages over Solidity, the EVM-based programming language. This includes blockchain commands that can be easily verified, modification of private keys and a modular design of Aptos. The network's upgradeability and configurability allow for new use cases, and its natively-implemented sharding feature provides horizontal throughput scalability, resulting in a better user experience.
