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 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.
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.
Co-Founder of DODO
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 assets to pass uninterrupted between the Ethereum and NEAR blockchains, thereby merging economies and facilitating the development of creator communities.
