Aptos Labs' investment in education and research will bring positive results for the company and the Web 3.0 industry. The grant will provide students with skills to scale blockchain performance, and adding an advisor further proves Aptos Labs' commitment to innovation. Dr. Boneh’s expertise will bring valuable insights for the company's future. Meanwhile, their ongoing sponsorship of hackathons and meet-ups at top universities, coupled with their contribution to research through open-source contributions on GitHub, both show their commitment to advancing Web 3.0 technology.
