First-of-its-kind summit, hosted by Aptos Foundation, featured dedicated sessions with Aptos’ contributors, along with insights from 50+ builders, supporters, and investors from across the Aptos ecosystem

The Aptos Ecosystem Summit, a first-of-its-kind event hosted by Aptos Foundation and aimed at uplifting the Aptos ecosystem held in January, drew a remarkable attendance of Aptos ecosystem projects, protocols, builders, and investors. 

The week-long event built around setting up Aptos Ecosystem projects, protocols, and builders for success highlighted achievements, unveiled news, and delivered best practices offered by 15+ countries, 32 projects, and 50+ investors from 26 firms. On the sidelines of the agenda, 122 one on one conversations took place. These 1:1 interactions between Ecosystem leaders and Aptos Foundation representatives allowed for in-depth discussions, hands-on support, and the sharing of specific insights related to engineering, marketing, product development, legal, and more.

Close to 75% of attendees flew in from outside of the United States for hands-on, full-service, and in-person go-to-market support; underscoring the global impact and reach of the Aptos ecosystem. In all, attendees spent a total of 580+ hours collectively in transit to partake in this monumental and global gathering. The international representation not only highlighted the ecosystem’s global influence but also emphasized the Ecosystem Summit’s significance as a platform for showcasing technical collaboration and innovation made possible by Move on Aptos on a global scale.

The momentum showcased during the Ecosystem Summit was evident on-chain as well. According to data from Flipside Crypto, the highest number of active users on Aptos (178K) was achieved on January 24th—coinciding with the Ecosystem Summit taking place.

In addition to ecosystem leaders and representatives, the summit program included sessions run by 30+ leaders representing Aptos Foundation. This type of engagement underscored the Aptos Foundation’s commitment to providing comprehensive support and resources for the development and growth of projects within the Aptos ecosystem.

In addition to sessions and meetups, attendees took Aptos Foundation representatives’ up on their offers to chat through everything Move, Aptos, and GTM (product, marketing, design, etc.).
