The First DEX & Wallet on Aptos
Pontem is a product development studio working toward global financial inclusion powered by blockchains. We are partnered with Aptos to build foundational dApps and other infrastructure which enable adoption of their L1, such as development tooling, EVMs, AMMs, and more. The Move IntelliJ IDE and Move Playground are just the beginning.
The burgeoning ecosystem of Move-based, inclusion-focused infrastructure is where Pontem has a competitive advantage. Over the past four years, our team has developed deep expertise in Move. After working firsthand with the tech developed by Meta and Diem engineers, we knew we had to be ‘first Movers’ on developing a Move Virtual Machine to expand the reach of this incredible technology. Our skill set encompasses the essential building blocks for modern blockchain development and we feel we are not just well-positioned for the future, but also in a unique position to build it. Given this unique position we are in, we will create the first product development studios for the Aptos Blockchain across 3 key verticals: protocols, developer tooling and infrastructure. With our skills and experience, we will help grow and develop this nascent ecosystem and capture value across the technology stack by building core primitive dApps necessary for the Aptos L1 to be used by billions of people. We will work with incumbent dApps, infrastructure providers and L1s to help them transition to Move. Where we identify market gaps, we will build the core elements ourselves and make upgrades that stay up to date with innovation.
We are going to first build the next generation of dApps with streamlined experiences enabled by Aptos and Move. This will fuel mainstream adoption globally for both customers and institutions. Starting with the key foundational protocol of an AMM for correlated and uncorrelated pairs. This will enable liquidity and discoverability for protocol tokens in the Aptos ecosystem.
The Pontem Team has a long and established reputation in the blockchain industry, having previously developed the DPoS DApp Crypti in 2014, founded the Wings DAO platform in 2016 and more recently in the last 2 years built the Dfinance project, a decentralized infrastructure dedicated to various financial and DeFi instruments and products designed for non technical people.
