Aptos (APT) Blockchain Sets New Record with 115.4M Daily Transactions, Outperforming Solana (SOL)

Aptos, a layer-1 blockchain platform developed by former Facebook employees, has demonstrated exceptional transactional capacity by surpassing Solana in daily transactions. On May 25, Aptos recorded a remarkable 115.4 million transactions, far exceeding Solana’s 31.7 million, according to Aptoscan. This surge in transaction volume not only shattered previous records but also surpassed the L1 record of over 65 million held by Sui Network by an impressive margin of over 50%. Aptos has set a new benchmark in blockchain transactions, highlighting the platform’s scalability and robustness.

Crypto Expert Question Tapos Cat’s Long-Term Viability

However, critics, including the CEO of Helius Labs, have raised concerns about Tapos Cat’s long-term viability and practical utility. They argue that the game’s emphasis on click-and-buy interactions may artificially inflate metrics without genuinely serving user needs.

On the other hand, proponents of Aptos argue that Tapos Cat serves as a crucial engineering project, showcasing the scalability and robustness of the Aptos network while paving the way for future developments. Additionally, Aptos Labs has announced plans for the launch of T wallet, a Web3 wallet service, in partnership with South Korean telecommunications operator SK Telecom (SKT).

Solana Leading as One of The Fastest Blockchain Platform

In comparison, Solana has proven to be the fastest among large blockchains, processing a staggering 91 million transactions in a single day. Despite its impressive speed, Solana has only achieved 1.6% of its theoretical maximum speed of 65,000 TPS. It is worth noting that Ethereum scaling solutions and layer 2 solutions have yet to surpass other layer 1 blockchains in terms of real processing speed.


The recent surge in transactional activity on Aptos reflects the platform’s growing adoption and scalability, while Solana continues to lead in transaction speed but has not reached its full potential. As the blockchain industry evolves, competition among layer-1 platforms is likely to intensify, driving further innovation and adoption.
