Who we are

Aurora was founded by a group of cryptocurrency enthusiasts who aspire to see cryptocurrency flourish as a true currency. We believe the biggest issues inhibiting adoption are a lack of price stability and insecurity of funds on cryptocurrency exchanges. The components that make up Aurora are created and maintained by Aurora Labs S.A., a company located in the Republic of Panama.
