Here’s what you need to know about APT, ARB, INJ and TIA:

Aptos (APT) is a decentralized blockchain and scalable Web3 infrastructure. Aptos’ parallel execution engine and modular design allow for high transaction throughput and low latency. APTOS is the native token of the blockchain which is used to pay for network transaction fees, earn rewards for securing the protocol via staking and vote on decisions that affect the future of the platform.

Arbitrum (ARB) is a Layer 2 (L2) blockchain protocol built on top of the Ethereum blockchain that allows Ethereum transactions to be processed more efficiently.  By increasing the amount of transactions Ethereum can process, as well as the speed at which it can process them, Arbitrum has the additional benefit of reducing transaction costs, known as gas fees, associated with using Ethereum and its various decentralized applications.

Arbitrum also allows developers to create and execute their own Ethereum-compatible smart contracts. These can be programmed to run decentralized applications that can interact with the broader Ethereum ecosystem without bogging down the main blockchain’s performance.

Injective (INJ) is a decentralized exchange (DEX) that offers various features such as cross-chain margin trading, derivatives and forex futures trading. Built on the Cosmos blockchain, an L2 application, Injective uses bridges to offer cross-chain capabilities for traders to trade across other networks. The exchange is operated by the INJ token, Injective’s native cryptocurrency, which is used by makers and takers to pay for transaction fees on its network.

Celestia (TIA) Celestia is a modular data availability network that securely scales with the number of users, making it easy for anyone to launch their own blockchain.
