Aptos Review 3 — Aptos TPS and Parallel Execution

A New Approach for Better Throughput. As one of the most fundamental key performance indicators (KPIs) for blockchain performance, throughput indicates how many transactions a blockchain can process in a certain amount of time. The standard unit of throughput is transactions per second (TPS). Early blockchains are notorious for their low throughput.

Staking of cryptocurrency isn't possible for all cryptocurrencies; only those compatible with PoS have that option. For example, you can't stake Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum Classic (ETC) because…
