Web3 hardware wallet CoolWallet has become the first leading cold storage solution to support the exciting new cryptocurrency Aptos (APT), created by the team behind Facebook’s Diem project. During our first phase of support, CoolWallet Pro users will be able to send and receive APT, which will at a later stage be followed by trading and swapping support.
Read our full guide on why Aptos is one of the hottest new crypto projects in 2022 here.
Aptos has been highly touted as a so-called “Solana Killer” thanks to its super-high transaction speeds and scalability and its unique Move language created by Diem. This is because Aptos uses a new transaction-ordering technique called “parallel execution” that was first theorized for Diem. It greatly speeds up the procession of transactions compared to other blockchains while keeping fees ultra-low.
CoolWallet’s Aptos integration follows our existing native cold storage support of the world’s best layer-1 and layer-2 network and ecosystem chains such as Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Solana, Avalanche, Tezos, Polygon, Arbitrum, Cardano and more, and opens up a vibrant new crypto frontier for our CoolWallet users. Layer-1 networks are tomorrow’s Web3 ecosystems and CoolWallet aims to secure them all with the most secure and convenient cold storage possible.
Why is Aptos so hyped?
Aptos is highly touted for its incredible performance that has allowed it to hit 130,000 TPS on its testnet and pull this off without trading security or stability. In comparison, Ethereum currently can handle about 30 TPS, and Solana, which has been troubled by network outages, can do about 65,000. This issue of transaction speed, along with the pedigree of the two Aptos founders, has been foremost in a lot of the media coverage of the project.
Moreover, it has the world’s biggest crypto backers behind it, which is a great indicator of future success. In 2022 Aptos raised over $350 million from many notable venture capital firms, including Multicoin Capital, a16z, Hashed, Three Arrows Capital, Tiger Global, Coinbase Ventures, Jump Capital and FTX Ventures.
