Solana devs are working on integrating the Move programming language into its library of compatible codes. Could it help Solana capture some of Aptos' mojo?

Move Language Powers Aptos, Sui, (formerly) Diem

The hottest coin in crypto right now is arguably Aptos, whose claim to fame is being the first Layer-1 blockchain based on Facebookโ€™s Move programming language and scrapped stablecoin project Diem. Meanwhile, developers on Solana recently reported success in integrating Move into the relatively old-school blockchain.

Would the addition of Move into Solanaโ€™s library of compatible codes provide a boost to the beleaguered but still highly active ecosystem?

On Jan. 27, software developer Richard Patel tweeted that devs from Solana Labs Virtual Machine team were able to compile and link Move code into a Solana VM binary file.

The progress is evidence that Solana devs have been building throughout rocky economic conditions, at least since early September 2022.
