In the proposal, it is said that Aptos is a next-generation layer-1 with low transaction costs, fast transaction speeds, and high transaction throughput.

If the proposal is accepted by Aptos, then developers will deploy four main features of the DEX, such as farms, pools, swaps, and initial farm offerings by Q4 2022.
