This new offering will also be accessible to provide support for developers in their endeavours to develop smart contracts and decentralized applications.

“Together with Microsoft, our shared vision is to ensure that this technology is accessible to more people and organizations than ever before.”
This collaboration between Aptos and Microsoft goes beyond what the Aptos Assistant. Both companies will also explore experimental domains such as asset tokenization, payment systems, and Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs). These initiatives are poised to reshape the landscape of financial services corporations by seamlessly integrating Web3.
Aptos Labs also has plans to bolster the integrity of its blockchain infrastructure by establishing validator nodes on Azure. This move further enhances the security and dependability of the Aptos network. The company took to X (formerly Twitter) to share this development, stating:
“The @Microsoft partnership helps @AptosLabs bring fortified security to the entire Aptos network. Aptos will run validator nodes on Azure, enhancing security of the Aptos blockchain with the infrastructure and reliability of Microsoft.”
