Stakin to Operate Validators on Aptos

Stakin is pleased to announce that we are providing staking services for Aptos Network as a Mainnet Genesis participant. Aptos is a Proof-of-Stake blockchain building a scalable layer-1 blockchain solution built with the Move programming language. The network brings vital new features such as Hybrid Custody, parallel execution, and horizontal throughput scalability to the PoS ecosystem.

Over 350+ developers worldwide have worked on the Aptos blockchain over the last three years. It introduces new and innovative ideas in consensus, smart contract design, system security, performance, and decentralization. These technologies will serve as a foundation for bringing web3 to the masses, according to the Aptos team.

Aptos Labs launched the Aptos Incentivized Testnet (AIT) in the first half of 2022. The incentivized testnet covered three phases and ended in September 2022.   The Aptos testnets were highly successful with hundreds of participants. The Aptos team selected the most performant testnet operators as partners and community node operators. The Aptos team delegated foundation delegation to the selected validators, and they were automatically selected as Mainnet participants. Stakin is happy to have been chosen for the Foundation delegation program and to support Aptos as a Mainnet genesis validator.

Stakin is thrilled to endorse the Aptos Network as a validator among over 38 other blockchain projects, such as Solana, Ethereum, Polygon, Polkadot, and Cosmos. We look forward to contributing to the ongoing refinement and growth of the blockchain and assisting in the achievement of its goals.

DISCLAIMER: This is not financial advice.
