Aptos considers it a goal to accelerate its ecosystem. To do so, it keeps key recommendations from community builders to improve the network. Just recently, a top request regarding the improvements in the gas schedule has surfaced. This request is perfectly suitable as the demand of the network must dictate all possible costs associated with the use of Aptos. The Aptos team made it clear that this would be a three-phase plan.
By early January 2023, operations on NFT data would be improved to reduce prices by almost 10x for dynamic NFTs. By Q1 2023, Aptos would design and build gas-efficient data structures. This would even ensure the provision of support from guides to indexing. By the end of Q1 or early Q2 2023, an advanced gas model would be devised. It would be responsible for separating both storage and execution-related costs. The end result would be the seamless provision of demand-driven gas for execution. Initially, Aptos spoke out with the intention of reducing the gas fee by almost 10 to 100x.
As of now, Aptos amalgamates both execution and storage costs regardless of intention. When talking about execution, gas is responsible for reducing time on a certain transaction. As long as storage is concerned, gas is responsible for the seamless management of scarce resources. Choosing one over the other may eventually pose a series of drawbacks. For example, a reduction in execution gas would result in an equal drop in storage. It is widely believed that this would result in lower gains.
The Development Orientation as stated by Aptos
To reduce the gas fees by up to 10%, Aptos has presented a development orientation. These include short-term, medium-term, and long-term orientations. These even fully include other processes that would eventually play a considerable role to greatly help reduce dynamic NFT gas. As a result of these developments, transactions, modifying NFTs, or updating positions in DeFi would benefit from the gas reduction.
Aptos had to face a considerable number of challenges till the launch of its blockchain. As soon as the lab was finished with the main net, its teams prioritized greatly on scaling their operations. These teams were even responsible for closely monitoring how users build with the intention of helping them build a little better. Aptos believes that the three-phase orientation plan would enable a user to build effectively with the network.
