What is Aptos?

Aptos is a Proof-of-Stake blockchain building a scalable Layer-1 blockchain using the Move programming language. Aptos brings critical new features such as hybrid custody, parallel execution, horizontal throughput scalability, and on-chain governance and staking.

Aptos improves user safety by enabling flexible private key management and hybrid custody services. A user can delegate the ability to rotate the account’s private key to one or more custodians and other trusted entities. Afterward, a Move module can define a policy that empowers these trusted entities to rotate the key under specific circumstances.

Aptos achieves high throughput and low latency by utilizing a unique parallelized and modular pipeline design for transaction processing key stages. This enables the chain to maximize hardware efficiency and parallel execution of all transaction processing components.

What is Aptos staking?

Staking is a great way for long-term crypto investors to earn passive income on their Proof-of-Stake cryptocurrency assets (such as APT) while taking part in securing the network.

Stakers, by delegating tokens to validators, give voting rights to these to validate transactions on the blockchain and propose new blocks. The more stake is attributed to a validator, the more it will be able to take part in the network consensus and earn rewards for its stakers.

A quick example: Suppose a blockchain network offers a 5% reward rate for a staking period of 1 year (5% APR). You decide to lock up and stake 100 tokens on the network. After a year, you can access your staked tokens, and you receive 5 additional tokens as your reward – minus eventual fees charged by the staking provider.

Staking Proof-of-Stake (PoS) cryptocurrencies such as APT does not require stakers to transfer their token to validators. It is a non-custodial process.

Why is Stakin a great choice for Aptos staking?

Staking your assets on your own is operationally challenging as it requires specialist expertise to set up nodes and ensure constant uptime to maximize rewards or prevent so-called slashing: partial loss of your staked cryptocurrencies due to prolonged downtime, or inappropriate/malicious behavior by the node operator.
