Aptos wants to foster swift NFT movement with new bridge on wormhole

Aptos (APT), a Layer 1 blockchain protocol dubbed a Solana killer, is expanding its overall capabilities with the latest launch of its non-fungible token (NFT) bridge on Wormhole. According to an update shared by Mo Shaikh, co-founder and CEO of the Aptos protocol, said the newly launched feature is interoperability in action and is the future of Web3.0.

According to Shaikh, the Wormhole Aptos NFT Bridge will make it possible for digital art collectors to mint their NFTs on any protocol whatsoever and move them through Aptos without hassle.

Aptos earned its name as a Solana killer because of the surreal capabilities it is built with. Designed using the novel smart contract programming language called Move, a Rust-based programming language that was independently developed by Meta’s (formerly Facebook’s) Diem blockchain engineers, Aptos has been introducing a number of significant products over the past couple of months.

As Aptos is playing home to more than 10,000 NFTs at the moment, Shaikh said more creators around the world are still welcome to try out the new product. To the crypto founder, he noted that the feature would allow creators to push their innovations onto the frontlines across different metaverses.

All-round metaverse growth

The launch of the Wormhole NFT Bridge is great, but this impressive ecosystem update is not just peculiar to Aptos. The broader crypto ecosystem, as well as the DeFi and NFT worlds, have continued to build more relevance despite the current Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) that is rocking the industry.

Amid all else, Cardano launched a series of projects this year, with the most publicized being the launch of the Djed stablecoin. The launch helped the parent chain to record its all-time high (ATH) value in its DeFi’s Total Value Locked.

Further, other protocols, including Solana, Avalanche, Fantom and Polygon, have one of two products they are currently working on.
