Why should we choose Aurora?

This article is all information about Aurora – EVM on NEAR. When you read this article, you will find the reason why we should choose Aurora. Let’s read to get the more useful thing.

Aurora Overview

Aurora Labs is developing the technology that will allow the Aurora protocol to elevate the NEAR and Ethereum ecosystems, thereby bringing blockchain to the mainstream

Aurora is an Ethereum Virtual Machine (Ethereum Virtual Machine – EVM). This is a decentralized platform built on the NEAR protocol to provide a scalable solution for Dapps on Ethereum when deployed on NEAR. Aurora is divided into 2 main parts:

  • One is the Aurora EVM Runtime which allows the deployment of smart contracts using Solidity and Vyper.
  • And two, the Aurora bridge is a connection platform built on the Rainbow bridge. It allows token transfers from Ethereum to NEAR.

Aurora Overview

Outstanding features

EVM is highly compatible with Ethereum

Aurora provides programming space similar to Ethereum. Aurora’s speed and scalability such as a layer-2. The dApps work as Metamask, Truffle, Hardhat, and Remix,…all can fork to expand to NEAR thanks to Aurora

High transaction volume and scalability

Aurora runs on Near Protocol, one of the third-generation blockchain platforms with high performance, and scalability

Inheriting special features from Near

Aurora EVM has a smart contract belonging to NEAR. The next time, AuroraDAO will go live on SputnikDAO 2.0, used in protocol administration


Users can use any ERC-20 token to pay transaction fees on the Aurora EVM

Fast transaction speed

Aurora can store thousands of transactions per second, a 50x increase compared to Ethereum 1.0. Aurora’s transaction confirmation speed is about 1s. Thanks to the quick completion of transactions on the NEAR Blockchain, the risk of being hacked is reduced 

Aurora with top tier blockchain platform

Aurora’s vision is to build an interoperable future that connects blockchains, developers & consumers

Low transaction fee

Transaction fees on Aurora are 1,000 times lower than on Ethereum. For example, the Transaction fee of 1 ERC-20 token on Aurora is less than 0.01 USD. While on Ethereum (with 50 Gwei and ETH price at 3000 USD), the figure goes up to 5.4 USD. Aurora removes major financial barriers for users & developers.

Aurora Ecosystem

Aurora launches $90 million developer fund to boost DeFi on NEAR Protocol.

Proximity will manage the token and provide funding to developers interested in building DeFi-based applications on Aurora. The venture will promote the overall operation of the network by relying on such a token used as a strategy by blockchain or cryptocurrency founders

As a result, they also started attracting top Ethereum-based projects: Curve Finance
