About Blockchains

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin stands as a leading cryptocurrency and payment network, utilizing peer-to-peer technology to operate without central authorities. It embraces global participation as an open-source platform. A notable advancement in Bitcoin is the introduction of ordinals and inscriptions. Launched in January 2023, the Bitcoin ordinals protocol enables the embedding of digital content like art, text, or video directly onto the Bitcoin blockchain. This innovation allows for the creation of exclusive digital collectibles, giving each satoshi a unique identity and purpose, broadening Bitcoin's utility beyond its role as a store of value.

What is Aptos?

Aptos is a Layer 1 blockchain platform focused on safety and scalability, driving growth within a decentralized network and developer ecosystem with the Move programming language.
