Digital Cat Game Drives Record Transactions on Aptos Blockchain

Digital Cat Game – Every time you tickle a digital cat, a transaction is recorded. This concept led to Aptos achieving over 115 million transactions on Saturday alone.

The blockchain meticulously logs each instance of a digital cat being tickled.

Aptos, a layer-1 blockchain network, experienced two consecutive days of substantial daily transaction increases, all thanks to a “tickle-to-earn” cat game.

On Friday, Aptos recorded over 90 million transactions, followed by more than 115 million transactions on Saturday, according to data from Aptoscan. For context, on Wednesday, Aptos processed 875,000 transactions, while Ethereum, as per Etherscan, processed just over 1 million transactions.

What triggered this surge? A cat clicker game, similar to Notcoin, launched on the network, recording every click on-chain.

Tapos, a “tickle-to-earn” game on the Aptos network, encourages users to tickle an on-screen cat in exchange for HEART tokens. Similar to past clicker games, or the more recent Telegram-based game Notcoin, users can click multiple times per second—some experienced Cookie Clicker players claim they can click up to 15 times per second. These clicks add up quickly.

“We had 2,000+ transactions per second modifying the global counter for days, all executed in parallel!” the Tapos Twitter account proudly posted. “This is pushing the boundary of what blockchains can do.”

The clicker game reportedly attracted 63,000 users who broadcasted over 323 million transactions during its three-day campaign—averaging approximately 5,000 transactions per user, or 1,700 per day per user.

This explains why there wasn’t a significant increase in the number of users on Aptos. Interestingly, there were more active accounts on Aptos on Monday, despite logging only 960,000 total transactions, compared to Saturday when the transaction count peaked at over 115 million.

However, the significant transaction gains touted by some Aptos builders did not impress everyone who examined the spike’s details.

“Looked into this. It’s from a game where you earn a useless coin by clicking on a screen rapidly,” tweeted Helius CEO Mert Mumtaz, a vocal Solana builder. “The clicks are counted as transactions per second. We will do anything to manipulate metrics in this industry rather than create something with real users or demand LMAO.”

Tapos follows the popularity trail of the Telegram-based clicker game Notcoin, which engaged over 30 million players earlier this year, peaking at six million daily active users. With Notcoin, however, none of the in-game taps are recorded on-chain. Only Notcoin’s NOT token and pre-token NFT vouchers are on-chain.

Under the Tapos model, assuming the 1,700 clicks per day per person that Tapos achieved, Notcoin would have recorded over 10 billion transactions per day at its peak. Notcoin’s chosen blockchain, The Open Network, has only processed just over 15 million transactions in a single day, according to TON Stat.

Despite this, Tapos has yet to reach the player base that Notcoin has. Now that its three-day campaign is over, those eager to tickle a digital kitten must wait for the developers to release the next phase.

“We will update you on the next step of the game,” the official Twitter account wrote. “We are preparing something special for our Top 50 on the leaderboard.”
