Aptos Foundation has teamed up with Alibaba Cloud to accelerate Web3 talent and accessibility in the Asia Pacific region. The layer-1 blockchain provider will join Alibaba Cloud’s Singapore Innovation Accelerator program as the main blockchain sponsor.
According to the announcement, the two companies will collaborate to launch the first co-branded Move developer community in Asia. Move is a programming language developed to evolve, improve performance, and strengthen web3 safeguards.
The language has gained significant traction in Asia with multiple developers organising hackathons, workshops, and other events across Asia. Aptos Foundation and Alibaba Cloud will also team up on a series of hackathons and regional events as they look to bolster the Asia-Pacific Web3 community.
Aptos Foundation is looking to tap into Alibaba Cloud’s highly scalable, efficient and secure cloud infrastructure to boost the growth of the Aptos ecosystem. The company will also offer guidance on technology integration and expert advice to standout Aptos-based projects in addition to funding.
