What’s the Aptos Foundation?

The Aptos Foundation is like the Aptos blockchain’s steadfast teammate–supporting its endeavors, bolstering it during challenges, and celebrating its triumphs.

Dedicated to cultivating the ecosystem, it empowers teams and individuals with grants, invigorates community engagement through educational programs and events, and champions decentralization via partnerships with node validators.


The power to the future of Aptos is in your hands. If you’re a part of the Aptos community, you can propose improvements or new ideas and vote on Aptos Improvement Proposals (AIPs for short).

Help guide the future of the network–from framework upgrades to changes to core code. Influence. Vote.

Move Language

The Move Language is the backbone of the Aptos network. Move introduces a safer, faster, and more expressive way to craft decentralized applications (aka Dapps).

Devs love it. It’s effortless, like “chewing cotton candy.”

Move Modules

Some call them smart contracts. But, on Aptos, they’re called Move modules. The important thing is, they can’t be changed, tampered, altered, or messed with in any way.
