What is the Martian Aptos Wallet?
The Martian Aptos Wallet is a decentralised wallet for holding and transferring tokens. It was created by the team at Martian Labs, a blockchain technology company based in San Francisco. One unique feature of the wallet is its integration with the Aptos Protocol, a privacy layer allowing anonymous and secure transfers through zero-knowledge proofs.
The wallet supports multiple cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum and ERC-20 tokens, as well as allows for atomic swaps between different digital assets. Additionally, it offers multi-signature functionality for added security measures. It is widely regarded to be the most secure Aptos-native crypto wallet and is rated 5 stars from 2100 reviews on the Google Chrome store.
How to add Aptos RPC to Martian Wallet
When you download the Google extension, the Aptos network is automatically added to the Martian Wallet, so you will not need to add it manually. Nevertheless, if you still want to find the network's RPC details you can find them in the Aptos Whitepaper.
Below is a quick guide to downloading the Martian Aptos Wallet on desktop:
- Download the Martian Aptos Wallet on Google Chrome.
- Click 'Create a new wallet' or 'I already have a wallet' and follow the prompts.
- Create a password for your new wallet (if you don't have an existing wallet).
- Open your 'extensions' on Google Chrome, and you will find the Martian wallet there.
About Aptos Network
The Aptos blockchain is a decentralised Layer 1 network that enables secure, transparent transactions and data storage. It utilises a unique consensus mechanism, called Proof of Elapsed Time (PoET), to fairly and efficiently select the node responsible for validating each transaction. Its modular design allows for customisable privacy options, making it suitable for various use cases.
To conclude, the Aptos network cannot be added to a MetaMask wallet as it is not an Ethereum-based blockchain. The only way to interact with the Aptos network is by using its native cryptocurrency wallet, Martian Aptos Wallet.
