The Aptos network is designed to offer builders performance, efficiency, and enjoyable development. Making these benefits broadly accessible requires easy ways to participate and build on the network.
Blockchain networks like Aptos grow through proof-of-stake participation and builder innovation. Networks that grow and scale create a more robust and resilient web3 ecosystem, paving the way for new use cases.
We worked closely with the Aptos team in preparation for their mainnet launch. Aptos builders and token holders can now use Coinbase’s suite of offerings across staking, custody, and development from Day 1 of mainnet launch.
Aptos is a high-throughput Layer 1 blockchain designed with upgradeability, scalability, and user experience as key principles. Its technology stack includes unique components such as Block STM and the Move programming language to support faster transactions and security. Block STM is a multi-threaded, in-memory parallel execution engine for smart contracts, built for efficiencies in the transaction execution process. The Move programming language is a flexible, executable bytecode language that focuses on safety and makes it easy to build and execute on custom smart contracts, especially on the Aptos blockchain
Aptos developers can build robust applications with Coinbase Cloud Enterprise Node, which provides read/write access to the Aptos blockchain. Aptos lends itself into a number of use cases including defi protocols, wallet solutions, liquidity aggregators, decentralized trading, and more. Developers looking to benefit from this high-throughput chain can .
Read/write access to blockchain data is the foundation of building a dapp. However, read/write infrastructure can be very complex to maintain, and requires dedicated engineering resources. The higher the throughput of a blockchain, the more complicated infrastructure can be.
makes development simpler. By worrying less about the underlying infrastructure, developers can instead focus on building their products. They can access the data they need without skipping a beat, relying on Node’s high uptime (99.9%*).
We’re excited to roll out support for staking and custody for Aptos from Day 1 of mainnet.
Institutions and enterprises looking to participate on Aptos can stake with Coinbase Cloud, a security-first, robust platform that removes the complexity of staking, and helps offer protection against risks such as slashing or double signing that may result in loss of funds.
Institutions looking to custody their tokens can do so with Coinbase Prime and hold their digital assets with a secure and trusted partner. (Staking directly through Coinbase Prime is currently only available for genesis clients.)
We couldn’t be more excited to help networks like Aptos prepare, launch, and scale their networks successfully. We have worked closely with the Aptos team to prepare for the mainnet launch. Coinbase has been an active ecosystem partner since our goal was to make it easy to participate and build on Aptos from Day 1.
We are proud to support innovative new networks, empower participation and development, and build the cryptoeconomy together.
