Aptos blockchain houses several dApps that have gained attention in the crypto space such as wallets (Petra wallet, Martian wallet, Fletch Aptos wallet), and NFTs, (Aptos Monkeys NFTs, and Rekt Dogs).
Aptos blockchain is the product of former Meta employees, Mo Shaikh and Avery Ching. The Aptos Lab before the network went live had raised $350 million with participating investors such as Andreesen Horowitz and FTX Ventures.
Hsuan Lee, CEO and co-founder of Blocto explained that the track record of the Aptos project aligns with the goal of Blocto. The Aptos ecosystem has “accumulated a lot of momentum in the dev community, even in the current market situation,” he added.
