We’re excited to share with you today a pivotal update in our journey towards mass adoption of blockchain technology, resulting from the upcoming launch of Aurora Pass, our new mobile wallet.
As part of our mission to bring crypto to mass adoption, we're introducing Aurora Pass, our new user-centric mobile wallet. With its launch, we're taking a bold step forward, transforming Aurora+ into a fully decentralized application (dApp).
What does this mean for you?
Starting from the launch of Aurora Pass, signing into Aurora+ with your email will no longer be an option. Instead, you'll access Aurora+ using your wallet, as you currently do with any dApp in the ecosystem. You will still be able to log in with Metamask, but it will now support Aurora Pass to offer you the best experience.
Do I need to take any action?
No, you do not have to do anything. The transition will not affect your assets nor your current staking rewards. The only changes happen internally, and are not linked to any on-chain activity..
What happens to the 50 free transactions per month?
To keep you enjoying this benefit, we're moving the 50 free transactions per month to Aurora Pass.
Just download Aurora Pass and set up a new wallet. Once you log into a dApp with Aurora Pass, any transaction you sign with it will be counted towards your free allocation.
The best part? You can use Aurora Pass both on desktop (by scanning the QR code) and mobile, so you won’t be limited in how you access your favorite dApps.
I have several addresses associated with my account
As Aurora+ will associate one address to one login, you will not have the ability to associate several addresses to one Aurora+ account.
However, you will now be able to sign into Aurora+ with each of these addresses.
I am an Aurobot holder
After the transition, holding an Aurobot won’t offer any specific advantages. However, stay tuned as we're actively developing the next set of features for Aurora Pass :)
When will this take effect?
Aurora Pass is set to be released in a couple of weeks. From its release day, you will have to connect with your wallet to access Aurora+.
Note that you will still be able to use Aurora+ with Metamask, but you won’t be able to get free transactions.
We’re here to help you transition
If you are an existing Aurora+ user, 10 free transactions will be allocated to your account that you can use up to 1 month after the transition.
An exciting future for Aurora+
Aurora+ has always been and will remain the primary gateway to the Aurora ecosystem.
Transitioning Aurora+ to a dApp is only the first step of larger transformations. We are currently working on a full redesign and new features to support you in your decentralized journey, such as better onboarding, lending/borrowing, or sending and receiving assets directly from your Aurora+ dashboard!
The Aurora vision
We believe that providing you with a gas less environment is critical to improve the usability of blockchain technology.
As such, we envision an ecosystem where all transactions will be free, sponsored by the dApps themselves. With our upcoming launch of Borealis Business, dApps will now sponsor their users’ transactions, which means you will experience more and more gas less transactions across the whole ecosystem.
As such, all transactions interacting with our staking contract will become free from the transition day. This is independent from the free transactions in Aurora Pass and will not count towards your allocation.
We invite you to dive into our comprehensive article that explains Aurora Pass in detail, and the subsequent changes to the Aurora+ experience. Make sure to sign up on auroracloud.dev and we'll update you when Aurora Pass is ready for download, ensuring you're among the first to enjoy this enriched experience!
