With programmable currencies, quick fixes are crucial. Speedy troubleshooting and maintenance ensure that an ecosystem functions properly, and that users and investors remain confident in the system.
Apollo Updater does just that: It allows our developer team (1) to keep APL 100% decentralized and (2) to completely upgrade the entire APL blockchain and protocol.
This is accomplished through a technological breakthrough referred to as ‘The Updater’. It allows developers to make changes to blockchain using a specialized transaction (on the blockchain).
According to our whitepaper:
A new type of transaction is introduced that allows … developers to implement the update procedure automatically, securely, with verification of the cryptographic digital signature.
This special transaction carries and installs information across the entire blockchain. Thus, it ensures that APL’s protocol can always be improved and upgraded.
The capability differentiates Apollo from other cryptos because mainstream projects have attempted to create similar tech with little success. The Apollo Updater is one of the first of its kind, and it functions smoothly.

Here are a few benefits:
- Developers can quickly and efficiently add new features
- Update the entire system
- Speed up release of new versions
- Avoid blockchain “hard forks”
- Protect the system from unauthorized and/or hacking attempts.
Apollo (APL) all-in-one privacy currency combines features of mainstream cryptocurrencies into a single, unregulatable platform. With 2-second block speed, it’s one of the fastest cryptos on Earth.
