Soon after Elon Musk’s tweet, the Aptos token clocked a total trading volume of $460 million. On the technical chart, APT has formed a bullish pattern and could rally even further.
In an interesting development, the Aptos token (APT) got an unexpected boost from the world’s second-richest man Elon Musk. In one of his cryptic tweets, which he deleted later, Elon Musk mentioned ‘AI’ and ‘APT’ spurring massive interest from the crypto community.
This was enough to catapult the Aptos (APT) token price to jump more than 10% hitting a new 30-day high past $13.68. As of press time, Aptos (APT) token is currently trading 9.53% up at a price of $12.88 and a market cap of $2.4 billion. Over the last 24 hours, the total has clocked a total trading volume of $460 million.
Note that there was no clear indication in Elon Musk’s tweet that read “AI APT OTT!” However, it was enough for the crypto community to catch the idea with investors rushing to invest in the crypto token APT. Within a few minutes of the tweet, the value of Aptos (APT) surged with investors looking to advantage of the same. Interestingly, one of the users asked Elon Musk why he deleted the tweet. Here’s what he had to say.

The Aptos cryptocurrency has been in the news since the beginning of 2023. Despite this current price surge, the native APT token is still trading at a 33% discount from its all-time high of $19.92, achieved earlier this year in January 2023.
Unlocking Aptos Tokens
Earlier this week on April 12, millions of Aptos tokens (APT) were unlocked boosting its market supply significantly. The estimated price value of the Aptos (APT) token unlocks was $50 million. But despite this unlocking, a staggering 84% of the Aptos’ total supply (842.74 million APT) is still locked. The next unlocking for the APT tokens is due in 27 days.
Elong Musk’s teasing with digital assets is nothing new. Earlier this month, we saw how he catapulted a rally in Dogecoin (DOGE) by changing the Twitter logo to a Shiba Inu “Doge” meme. Thus, many in the crypto community also dismissed his Aptos (APT) teasing calling it “just Elon things”.

On Monday, Tesla CEO and technology entrepreneur Elon Musk sent out a tweet that caused the price of the Aptos token (APT) to soar to new heights.
The tweet, which read “Aptos tokens are the future,” came as a surprise to many in the crypto world. The token, which is not widely known, has seen its price skyrocket in the past few days.
The Aptos token is a decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol that provides a platform for developers and investors to lend, borrow, and invest in a variety of different tokens. The platform itself provides a number of advanced features that make it attractive for developers and investors alike.
The recent surge in price can be attributed to a combination of factors. The positive sentiment stirred up by Musk’s tweet, as well as the momentum from the broader DeFi market, are all contributing to the APT’s price surge.
In addition, the Aptos platform has been gaining more attention lately due to its potential to provide users with opportunities to generate profits from trading. With the added features, users can now take advantage of arbitrage, margin trading, and more.
The surge in the Aptos token price is an indication of what may develop into a larger trend of DeFi tokens gaining traction. With the recent surge, the Aptos token is now one of the more recognized DeFi tokens.
With the support of industry leaders, such as Musk, and the advantages that DeFi tokens offer, we may soon see more tokens taking center stage in the cryptocurrency space.
For now, the Aptos token has taken a large leap forward as a result of Musk’s tweet, and the outlook for the token appears to be quite promising.
