Artifact Staking is pleased to announce that we have partnered with Aptos as a Node Operator. Over the last six months we have been working closely with the Aptos team and have played a key role as a Testnet operator. During this time Artifact has helped to improve the quality and performance of the network while simultaneously providing our clients early development access to the Aptos Testnets. We are proud to have been selected as a Mainnet genesis validator.

Artifact Staking is a bespoke, next-level blockchain infrastructure provider. Our services include white label validation services and private RPC access. Currently, we operate on a number of prominent networks, including Solana, Chainlink, Ethereum, NEAR, as well as a myriad of Cosmos appchains.

Our services are supported by our team of seasoned professionals, who have years of experience in multiple sectors including network engineering, devops, traditional finance, financial risk management, and commodities trading. Thanks to a series of redundant components, our services have no single point of failure, and we have a strong track record of maintaining 24/7 uptime.

“We believe that Aptos is positioned to achieve mass adoption at scale through safe and highly secure mechanisms. Aptos helps us to further our goal of making blockchain technology accessible to everyone while providing highly reliable critical infrastructure to Web3.” — Nick Everett, Partner Artifact Staking

Validation as a Service

Artifact currently offers white label validation services on Aptos. Through our non-custodial validation offering you can let us do the work while you retain full custody and control of your Aptos. As a reminder, the minimum required stake is 1 million APT.

Dedicated RPC Access

Artifact offers private, dedicated RPC endpoints into the Aptos blockchain. Through a series of globally distributed node clusters our low latency endpoints are always physically close to you. Private RPC clients retain exclusive use of their own clusters and do not share capacity with other parties.

In support of our mission to make blockchain accessible to everyone, we offer free RPC access to small development teams. We absolutely will help you get started; no strings attached.

Should you find yourself interested in our services, we invite you to contact us at and we will be happy to discuss your use cases in person.
