Does anyone have a written comparison of Aptos vs other Layer 1s and the key technical differences?

Ideally an objective third party, someone technical also.


I love the speed of transactions processing in Aptos ecosystem compared to others


Absolutely correct, it’s insane really, if you think about it…


I asked my new bff Aptos assistant and here’s what he had to say:
Aptos differentiates itself from other Layer 1 blockchains in several ways:

  1. Safety and Production-Readiness: Aptos is focused on delivering the safest and most production-ready Layer 1 blockchain ⁠1. The team behind Aptos consists of the original creators, researchers, designers, and builders of Diem (formerly known as Libra), which was built with a similar purpose ⁠2. They have extensive experience in blockchain technology and have designed Aptos with an emphasis on absolute safety.
  2. Move Language: Aptos uses the Move language, which was originally developed for Diem. Move is a safe and reliable language that enables developers to build decentralized applications (DApps) on the Aptos network ⁠3. Move provides a safer, faster, and more expressive way to craft DApps ⁠3.
  3. Diem-BFT Consensus: Aptos is building the Diem-BFT consensus, which is a key innovation. Diem-BFT is a Byzantine Fault Tolerant consensus protocol that ensures the security and reliability of the blockchain ⁠1. It is designed to provide low latency and high throughput, taking full advantage of the underlying network ⁠4.
  4. On-chain Governance: Aptos has built-in on-chain governance that enables seamless network and VM configuration changes. The Aptos community can create and vote on proposals that impact the behavior of the blockchain ⁠4. This ensures that the network remains decentralized and governed by the people who build on it ⁠3.
  5. Scalability: The Aptos blockchain is designed for scalability. It leverages a pipelined and modular approach for transaction processing, enabling high throughput and low latency ⁠5. The modular architecture design supports frequent and instant upgrades, allowing for the rapid deployment of new technology innovations ⁠5. Additionally, the blockchain is experimenting with future initiatives to scale beyond individual validator performance, such as internal sharding and homogeneous state sharding ⁠5.

These factors make Aptos a unique and promising Layer 1 blockchain, offering safety, scalability, and governance features that set it apart from other blockchains.


Good write up mate


Aptos is the best


Aptos is a great project


Aptos Aptos adnd one more aptos :wink:


haha this is great thanks!
