Aptos x Microsoft Expanding Web3 Global Access

Aptos Labs is partnering with Microsoft to make web3 accessible on the Aptos network.

TL;DR:

  • Aptos Labs is partnering with Microsoft to make web3 more accessible 

  • With an assist from Microsoft’s Azure OpenAI Service, Aptos is solidifying its incredibly fast, highly scalable blockchain as the place to build the world’s most accessible digital experiences.

Today marks a significant moment in Aptos history: Aptos Labs is partnering with Microsoft to accelerate global web3 adoption with AI and blockchain technology. 

The partnership between Aptos Labs and Microsoft will work to provide a more seamless adoption of web3 by combining Microsoft’s AI expertise and high-tech infrastructure with Aptos Labs’ technical team and cutting-edge blockchain. Together on Aptos, and with the right partners, AI and blockchain make a powerful team. AI can decode blockchain’s complexities and make building on-chain accessible, while blockchain provides the security and transparency needed to solve AI’s perception problem. The result is a clear path to a user-first, decentralized online ecosystem. 

The world-class engineers behind Aptos Labs have solved some of the most difficult problems in blockchain at an immense scale with security. By combining talent and technology, this partnership underscores Microsoft’s and Aptos’ shared commitment to decentralization. By leveraging Microsoft technology, the partnership will deploy offerings that create a supportive, empowering builder experience and make the transition from web2 to web3 seamless: 

  • Aptos Assistant – a responsible, user-friendly, and secure AI chatbot that will bridge web2 to web3 by demystifying blockchain for the everyday internet user and organization. Aptos Assistant will enable users to seamlessly onboard into web3 by asking any kind of question regarding the Aptos blockchain ecosystem using natural language and developers to build smart contracts and decentralized apps through easy access to resources. 

  • A Financial Services (FSI) solution exploration that in the future could allow users to bring use cases like tokenization, payments, CBDC, and other related primitives to market. 

  • Building Faster in Move – for Aptos’ Move programming language will be available to support contract development, unit testing, formatting and prover specifications. 

And this is just the beginning. In the months to come, Aptos Labs’ will tap Microsoft technology to create even more exciting intersections between AI and web3. 

Aptos is prioritizing efforts to improve infrastructure tooling and support for validators to run effortlessly and efficiently on Azure cloud infrastructure. Combine this with the Aptos blockchain’s status as the fastest blockchain network available today with a time to finality (TTF) of less than one second, and it’s clear that Aptos will provide the best possible foundation for the internet’s next generation to create, build, and benefit from exceptional user experiences. 

“The intersection of AI and blockchain is one of the most interesting combinations of emerging technologies and can generate transformational use cases,” said Rashmi Misra, General Manager, AI & Emerging Technologies, Microsoft. “By fusing Aptos Labs' technology with the Microsoft Azure Open AI Service capabilities, we aim to democratize the use of blockchain enabling users to seamlessly onboard to Web3 and innovators to develop new exciting decentralized applications using AI.”

To us, web3 has always been about the experiences users envision—a new internet, on their terms. Thanks to Aptos Labs’ partnership with Microsoft, the groundwork on the Aptos network has been laid. The possibilities are limitless. The tools are all there.

Let’s move.
