Solana Vs Aptos: Solana can be considered one of the main rivals for the Aptos. Solana is one of the peak-performing layer1 blockchains in recent days. When it comes to speed, Aptos & Solana have a similar level of speed. Because they both rely on parallel engines. But Aptos is more reliable when compares to Solana.

Aptos is less prone to failure when compared to Solana. In the Aptos blockchain, every block will be connected to both the leader block & nearby blocks in the blockchain. If the leader block fails, it will connect to the nearby blocks & eliminates the failures.

Aptos Vs Ethereum: Already we know that the Aptos blockchain has beaten Ethereum in speed. This happens due to the hardware design. Ethereum has only one CPU core, on the other hand, Aptos operates on 16. Yet Ethereum has indestructible reliability & popularity.
