Aurora is an Ethereum Virtual Machine created by the stellar 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.
When you deploy your Ethereum app on Aurora, you’ll benefit from:
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 ERC20 tokens between Ethereum and Aurora, within a great user experience.
Aurora exists and will be 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 Automous Organization—the AuroraDAO—complimented by a traditional entity which will hold one of several seats in the AuroraDAO.
Aurora's implementation of an Ethereum Virtual Machine on the NEAR Protocol greatly expands the horizons for cross-chain functionality. DODO is excited to be partnering with Aurora to further the growth of a truly multi-chain space with greater access and liquidity for people around the world.
The SnowSwap team is excited to bring low slippage swapping pools to the Aurora EVM while taking advantage of the enhanced performance and capabilities of the underlying NEAR platform. SnowSwap’s pools are ideal for trading like-kind assets such as stablecoins and wrapped Bitcoin.
The 1inch Network proceeds its expansion to a variety of blockchains. That's why we fully support the implementation of such solutions as Aurora environment that allows almost any Ethereum-based dApp to be deployed within the NEAR ecosystem. It is also highly important to pay attention to the reliability of the bridges between networks and I'm proud that my partner Anton Bukov was deeply involved into the development of the Rainbow Bridge which is now an essential part of the Aurora.
Band Protocol is excited for the launch of Aurora on NEAR Protocol. Aurora will allow Ethereum smart contracts to be deployed onto NEAR Protocol, providing a ‘best of both worlds’ for developers and more efficient capital flow for DeFi users. We are excited to be partnered with NEAR as an oracle partner and are looking forward to being an accelerator for the reality of the multi-chain world through secure decentralized oracles.
DeFiner’s cross-chain initiatives will link the ecosystems of different public chains, opening up cross-chain asset financial interoperability. We are proud to be driving forward and partnering with Aurora to bring our cross-chain initiative to the next level!
Our goal is to create an interoperable future where the gaps between blockchains, developers and users are bridged. Aurora does just that by allowing for a seamless user experience and allowing for assets to pass uninterrupted between the Ethereum and NEAR blockchains, thereby merging economies and facilitating the development of creator communities.
