The price of Aptus (APT) has more than tripled in less than 2 weeks, reaching $14, and has reached the 30th position in the crypto project table. Given the project’s low price history, traders are looking to see how far this growth will continue.
According to Mihan Blockchain and quoted by CoinDesk, the price of Aptos fell from its peak of 10 dollars to nearly 3 dollars after the collapse of the FTX exchange. It should be mentioned that one of the important investors of Optos was Alameda Company, which was very close to FTX exchange. But after the fever of this issue subsided, the projects that were related to FTX, started to revive their prices again, the leader of which was Solana.
Aptos was created by Diem team (Facebook blockchain project). this project It aims to provide a secure infrastructure on which decentralized applications (Dapps) can be easily built.
The price of Aptus was around $4 on January 8 (Dec 18) and reached a peak of $14.57 in less than 2 weeks with a staggering growth of around 360%.

One of the fundamental reasons for Aptos price growth was related to users’ acceptance of the NFT trading market on this network called Topaz. It should be noted that less than 4 months have passed since the launch of the Aptos network, and it may be too early to judge the value of this network, but you should know that a billion APT units have been predicted in Tokonomics, of which about 159 million units are currently in circulation. Its current market value is about 2 billion dollars, which puts Optos in the 29th position of the cryptocurrency table.
It is important to mention that this price growth happened when the price of Bitcoin increased and the market went up.

Will the price of Aptos increase?
- To answer this question, 2 points should be taken into consideration, for which FTX and Alameda streams may still be considered negative as the main investors of the fundamental project. The second point is that the development and application activities of this project are enough to place it among the top 10 cryptocurrency projects? Because in the future, the coins of this project will be released, and it should be seen whether the price of Aptos will have the traction to increase the market cap to this extent or not.
