Coinbase, Binance and FTX All Announce Support for New Altcoin Project “Solana Killer” Cryptocurrency News

Three of the world’s largest crypto exchanges are backing the launch of a highly anticipated digital asset project.
Coinbase, FTX, Binance and other crypto exchanges have announced support for Aptos (APT), a new Layer 1Blockchainled by Aptos Labs developer co-founders Mo Shaikh and Avery Ching.

The Aptos chain uses a programming language originally developed for Diem, tech giant Meta’s legacy crypto project that was eventually abandoned. Aptos focuses on Diem’s ​​original goal of creating a super-fast and scalable blockchain.

While Aptos originally aimed to enable up to 160,000 transactions per second (TPS) on its network, rivaling Solana’s speed, the chain is currently clocking in at 4 TPS at the time of writing.

According to Aptos, the blockchain works “as expected” on day one.

Update from day one:
Today was exciting. Many thanks for the support!

The Aptos network has evolved as expected and will see increased activity as ecosystem projects are on board and ramping up.

Coinbase said trading in APT/USD will be phased in on the platform once sufficient altcoin supply is established.

The day before the launch, Aptos released the project’s tokenomics, revealing that there were 1 billion tokens in circulation at the time of the mainnet launch on October 12.

Of the existing APT, 51% was allocated to the community, 19% to the main contributors, 16.5% to the Aptos Foundation and 13.48% to the seed investors. APTs held by retail investors are subject to a one-year lock-up period and all circulating supply will be released over the next decade.
