The Aptos Blockchain: Safe, Scalable, and Upgradeable Web3 Infrastructure The Aptos blockchain has been developed over the past three years by over 350+ developers across the globe. 

It offers new and novel innovations in consensus, smart contract design, system security, performance, and decentralization. The combination of these technologies will provide a fundamental building block to bring web3 to the masses.

The Aptos vision The Aptos vision is to deliver a blockchain that can bring mainstream adoption to web3 and empower an ecosystem of decentralized applications to solve real-world user problems.

Our Mission Our mission is to advance the state-of-the-art in blockchain reliability, safety, and performance by providing a flexible and modular blockchain architecture. 

Built on these core design principles: 1. Fast and secure execution along with simple auditability and mechanical analyzability via a new smart contract programming language, Move. 

2. • Extremely high throughput and low latency through a batched, pipelined, and parallelized approach to transaction processing.

3. Novel parallel transaction processing that efficiently supports atomicity with arbitrarily complex transactions through Block-STM.

4. Optimizations for performance and decentralization via rapid, stake-weight validator set rotation and reputation tracking.
