AURORA: Bringing Light To The World

“We can provide fast transactions and solve any problems using the Aurora Blockchain,” says Aurora’s CTO Kezhen Qiang. “Additionally, we will upgrade our system to include AI integration for faster service to customers.”

A Blockchain world that shines like the aurora borealis is what the AOA Chain intends to make.

Aurora (AOA), which came into existence in November 2017, uses DPOS+BFT consensus mechanisms, like EOS, plus speed-of-light smart contracts. Its smart contracts incorporate multiple industries including artificial intelligence, gaming, and the Internet of Things: all on one blockchain.

100+ different companies manage DPOS to give Aurora a more responsive user experience. Even it runs 100 crypto-kitties, there will be no congestion on the chain.

“Building the network and integrating the network is our goal,” CEO of Aurora Mejin Zhao said at an event held in South Korea earlier this week.

What’s so special?

AOA has the capability to upgrade the underlying code stored in the chain. Automatic upgrading can be realised with consensus recognition, with the designated height. Lower storage costs and an overall better user experience can be achieved through spontaneous cluster groups. Users’ storage costs decline with groups participating in the transaction verification and storage.

The Aurora Chain is nearly completed, with the smart contracts development currently underway. Yet, AOA is currently online, and the company’s Aurora Wallet can be downloaded for Windows and OS X, syncing their online platform for smart contracts.

The company says it is progressing on work to improve security and operation speed by upgrading the intelligent application isolation services and stereo-net.

The company has very intelligently created a roadmap themed around the firm’s geological nomenclature. The roadmap is divided into stages, smartly dubbed “Earth Magnetic Field”, “Charged Particle”, and “Colorful Aurora”, to guide it past 2019.

The first stage continues into July as Aurora tests its Blockchain. AOA will add the DPOS and BFT consensus, implement “EVM + Solidity Smart Contracts”, and then embed up to 20 DApps.

This prepares Aurora to commence its multi-asset offerings, with peer-to-peer stereo-net, and the intelligent isolation of applications. This will lay the groundwork to have a total of 50 to 100 embedded DApps.

Unparalleled support is provided by The World Blockchain Council, to help its members grow and develop their respective technologies, and that is what AOA put to use and established an arrangement.

Established in early 2018, the WBC helps solve specific problems with a focus on blockchain use cases. The council has a three-way approach to support its members, through their Council, College and Conferences.

Likewise, WBC also generated interest towards Aurora and made this a mutually beneficial arrangement.

“AOA Chain has very important technology that provides solutions to the marketplace and gives users a unique experience,” – WBC founder David Song.
