Introduction

Aura Network is a layer-1, NFT-centric blockchain that focuses on expanding the use of NFTs across various industries. Our vision is to create a one-stop destination for minting, evaluating, querying, and transacting NFTs, to become a pioneer NFT infrastructure for the future.

Aura Network provides 3 main features:

  • A universal framework for all stakeholders to create a one stop destination for developing new NFT use cases.
  • A multi-chain platform that can support both crypto communities and traditional businesses.
  • An infrastructure layer for building and integrating your applications to the metaverse

Aura Network is built using Cosmos SDK, the world's most used framework for building blockchains.
