We are excited to announce our collaboration with Aptos to become a genesis validator and provide node management services for its network.

To attract the best and most innovative Web3 developers, Aptos offers a unique combination of safety and performance. The Aptos platform uses the Move programming language, which helps developers build Web3 apps that can solve today’s consumer needs on a network that can adapt to anything. Move is an ideal programming language for smart contracts, and it helps make Aptos an excellent place for developers to create DApps that utilize them.

Aptos is on a mission to create the ideal Layer 1 blockchain and development ecosystem for the world’s most talented Web3 developers. By collaborating with Aptos to provide node management services and staking support, InfStones will help to strengthen the Aptos protocol and assist the network in reaching its goals.
