  • APT’s daily active addresses were rising, and the token’s value showed potential for a bullish trend.

There has been an interesting development on the Aptos blockchain. A significant increase has been observed in the volume of stablecoins flowing into the network.

This activity surge comes after the chain’s successful launch more than five months ago. Now, the question is- How has the chain and its native token, APT, fared since its inception?

Aptos blockchain is a distributed ledger technology that operates in a decentralized manner. The Aptos blockchain aims to offer a secure and scalable platform.

Notably, the blockchain employs a consensus mechanism known as “Proof of Identity” (PoI) to reach consensus. Compared to other consensus mechanisms, such as Proof of Work (PoW) and Proof of Stake (PoS), PoI is more energy-efficient and secure.

Daily active and unique addresses on the rise

Based on data from Aptos explorer, the Aptos network has witnessed a significant number of daily active addresses. Over the past 30 days, the network has seen more than 10,000 active addresses, with the number currently standing at over 18,000. Furthermore, Aptos scan reported that the network had over 3.3 million unique addresses registered.
