Compendium about Aptos Ecosystem 📖

I have been in the ecosystem for a long time. The first entries about Aptos were made when many projects were just being created and we were making testnets in full swing. Aptos is still developing strongly. Many projects no longer exist, but new, much better ones have been created. I would like this compendium to be a collection of the most important places that are worth having at hand.

“Understanding Aptos: A Comprehensive Overview”

In December, a very interesting article summarizing the Aptos ecosystem was published on Messari. Provides detailed information for the blockchain. Discusses various aspects of Aptos, including usability, ecosystem design, social, and developer tools.

WALLETS

There are quite a lot of wallets for Aptos, but I think there are three that should be distinguished:

Petra — official wallet built by Aptos Labs. The only one at the moment that can be used on the popular Galxe task platform.

Pontem — wallet built by Pontem network, who have a whole range of products and have raised a lot of funding.
