Aura Network is powered by a peer-to-peer blockchain protocol to scale highly interactive games, virtual worlds, and DApps.
Aura Network is a platform for decentralized games and virtual worlds. The underlying protocol is a P2P scaling solution that allows for verifiable gameplay at massive scale. All while being backed by the security blockchain provides.
A virtual world is a online community environment that is designed and shared by individuals so that they can interact in a custom-built, simulated world. Minecraft and Roblox are the most successful virtual game worlds today.
Aura breaks down the barriers to entry for the creation of games and virtual worlds. With Aura’s tools in hand, both developers and players alike can enjoy more creative, engaging, and immersive experiences.
Aura is device agnostic which means you can access your favorite game worlds from anywhere and take them with you.
The ledger records provenance and ensures authenticity, reduces fraud and gives property within worlds contextual value.
Aura’s sandbox environments and intuitive creator tools empower new sets of creators that blur the line between creators and players.
HashDragons is the first game that runs on the Aura Network. It is a dragon collection game where the player explores the world for resources to capture dragons. It demonstrates the scalability of the underlying network to handle large transaction volume generated by the game clients. Using P2P verification, the clients maintain the integrity of the game state, thereby freeing up the ledger to be only responsible for logging verified transactions coming from the game clients.
