2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / 🔵 [ANN][ICO] SOLD OUT! Aurora 🔥 Decentralized Finance and Banking + Exchange 🔵 on: December 27, 2017, 03:17:13 AM

Due to inappropriate behavior on our previous thread we have
started a new moderated ANN thread.

Aurora is the first blockchain powered
financial network and cryptobank.

Trade freely and securely. Store your wealth in a reserve backed stable coin.
Take back control of your finances.

Aurora will be the first fully decentralized crypto banking and financial platform. Aurora DAO is a suite of DAPPs and protocols that make up a fully decentralized banking and financial network. The components of Aurora support the boreal, a decentralized stablecoin, and together enable global banking in the new currency. Revenue from the components of Aurora will be used to expand boreal banking and provide economic incentives to secure the network via the Snowglobe protocol. More information about Aurora including the whitepaper can be found here.

The first component of Aurora is IDEX, a real-time decentralized exchange already live on the mainnet.

IDEX - Real-Time Decentralized Exchange

IDEX is a decentralized exchange that provides instant order placement and execution,
free order cancellation, and real-time order book updates.

IDEX is the first component of Aurora and is the first real-time decentralized exchange. IDEX combines the speed of centralized exchanges and the security of the blockchain. IDEX allows traders to trade continuously without waiting for transactions to mine, fill multiple orders at once, and cancel orders immediately without any gas costs. It’s the experience people should expect trading on the blockchain!

On current decentralized exchanges such as Ethderdelta, 0x and Oasis, trade speeds are limited by block times and order books update slowly, often being out of sync with the actual app. Trades are not matched automatically, forcing users to manually select trades, opening them up to user error. Filling multiple orders, or market orders is impossible, and canceling or even placing limit orders can cost gas. By giving up the ability to manage user’s cryptocurrency, these exchanges also severely hamper the user experience.

Our Unique Solution

IDEX takes a different approach. By controlling the transaction sequence, IDEX provides the speed and user experience of a centralized exchange plus the security and auditability of a decentralized exchange.

Unlike other decentralized exchanges, the IDEX smart contract is designed to submit signed trades to Ethereum. This enables IDEX to control the order that transactions are processed, separating the act of trading from the blockchain transaction. As users trade their exchange balances update in real-time, while in the background their private keys are used to authorize the trade in the contract. This authorization prevents users from rescinding any completed trades and prevents IDEX from initiating any unauthorized trades.

The Future

Decentralized Exchange Protocol: Snowglobe

Ethereum is currently unable to meet the requirements of busy decentralized exchanges. Our solution is “Snowglobe”, a sidechain protocol used for decentralized trading that enables multiple exchanges to share liquidity.

Snowglobe is a protocol for high-performance, EVM-compatible, decentralized sidechain exchanges. The IDEX sidechain and the Snowglobe network are both secured by staking the AURA token. Stakers are rewarded with transaction fees from IDEX, DC banking, and any other future Aurora products.

Stable Coin: Boreals

Boreal is the stablecoin of the Aurora network. Inspired by free banking, each boreal is backed by ether reserves, debt from loans, and dapp endorsement, beginning with IDEX. Click to learn more about free banking, boreals, and Aurora loans.

The team


October 2017
  • IDEX launch on the mainnet. Semi-decentralized architecture consists of Ethereum smart contract plus central trading engine and transaction arbiter.
  • API integration. Opening the platform via API access that will enable the development of trading bots, increasing liquidity and improving market efficiency.
December 11th 2017
  • Token sale begins. DVIP will give discounted fees immediately.
  • AURA will be airdropped on addresses holding DVIP once the token sale has ended. Once the airdrop has completed both DVIP and AURA will be unfrozen for transfers.
Q2 2018 - Boreals go live with market making to stabilize the price
Q3 2018 - Deploy Snowglobe childchain architecture, allowing IDEX to increase transaction throughput.
Q4 2018 - Decentralization of the orderbook and transaction arbiter. This completes the transition of the current IDEX product to a decentralized childchain exchange.
Q1 2019 - Margin trading support. Including this functionality in the protocol will put the UX on par with existing centralized exchanges.
TBD - Once sharding is production ready we will launch the Snowglobe MVP, other exchanges are now able to build on the protocol.
TBD - Fully decentralized Aurora mvp with Decentralized Capital boreal loans.

The protocol will continue to evolve and incorporate new blockchain developments, for example zk-snarks or other privacy systems that enable private trades. These improvements are heavily dependent on further development of the Ethereum network and other evolving blockchains.

Our Tokens

Aurora currently has two tokens: DVIP, our membership token, and AURA, our proof of stake utility token.

DVIP Token

DVIP is the token for sale during our token sale. A total of 2000 DVIP will ever be created and we are selling 1600 DVIP in our token sale. The remaining tokens have been reserved for marketing efforts or have been previously sold during our presale.

DVIP provides 3 main benefits:
  • Free or discounted trades on IDEX through 2021
  • 2x Market Making rewards for life
  • DVIP is redeemable for Aurora tokens (AURA) in the future. DVIP is redeemable at a rate of 50,000 AURA per 1 DVIP.

For a complete breakdown of the benefits of DVIP membership, please visit the Aurora whitepaper.

Market Making Rewards on IDEX
20% of the total AURA token supply will be initially dedicated to the market maker rewards program, the first of our community distribution initiatives. AURA is awarded at a rate of 1% of the total remaining Market Maker rewards AURA per month. This program will extend through at least the end of 2019. Market makers who place and execute limit orders on any IDEX market will receive AURA tokens proportional to the fees spent on their limit orders.

A trader can earn up to 2x more AURA by owning membership tokens.

Aurora Token (AURA)

Aurora (AURA) is our proof of stake network token. AURA that aligns the interests of Aurora and the Snowglobe operators. All value from Aurora is used to compensate those who stake their AURA and provide security for the Snowglobe network.

In addition to acquiring AURA during our membership token sale, Aurora tokens can be earned by trading on IDEX through our market making program, which rewards users for adding liquidity to the exchange.

AURA Distribution

50% of AURA tokens will be used to help accelerate adoption of the Aurora network, the other 50% will be used for operations. 40% will be used to help subsidize the growth of Aurora by distributing AURA to users and community members through programs such as market maker rewards, marketing campaigns, and air drops. 10% will be given out proportionally to individuals who purchase IDEX memberships.
