Taking Ethereum beyond the stratosphere

Aurora is an Ethereum Virtual Machine created by the team at the NEAR Protocol, delivering a turn-key solution for developers to operate their apps on an Ethereum-compatible, high-throughput, scalable and future-safe platform, with low transaction costs for their users.

Full Ethereum compatibility
Aurora is fully compatible with Ethereum. No need to re-write your applications.
High throughput and scalability
Aurora runs on the NEAR Protocol, one of the highest performance third-generation L1 protocols, from one of the most highly regarded teams in the industry.
Low transaction costs
Your users will not only enjoy fast transactions, but very economical ones as well.
Features, Features, Features
From its core SputnikVM, to full tool-chain support, to gasless meta transactions, Aurora is the most advanced EVM on the market.
Trustless Bridging
The Aurora Bridge, as a part of the NEAR Rainbow Bridge, is the only fully trustless asset bridge in the Ethereum industry.
Base currency is ETH
Transaction fees in Aurora are paid in the base currency, ETH, providing a great UX for users, and opening the door to interesting ecosystem sustainability possibilities.

The big picture
An Ethereum-compatible scaling solution

The Aurora environment consists of the Aurora Engine, a high performance EVM—Ethereum Virtual Machine—and the Aurora Bridge, facilitating trustless transfer of ETH and ERC-20 tokens between Ethereum and Aurora, within a great user experience.

Aurora exists and is operated as an independent, self-funded initiative, but will continue to leverage the shared team DNA and continually evolving technology of the NEAR Protocol. The governance of Aurora will take a hybrid form of a Decentralized Autonomous Organization—the AuroraDAO—complemented by a traditional entity which will hold one of several seats in the AuroraDAO.
