Mutant Swap
Aurora Blockchain

What is Aurora?

Aurora is an Ethereum Virtual Machine created by the team at the NEAR Protocol, delivering a turn-key solution for developers to operate their apps on an Ethereum-compatible, high-throughput, scalable and future-safe platform, with low transaction costs for their users.

Why Aurora transition for Mutant Ecosystem?

Mutant Punks NFTwas deployed on Ethereum blockchain which has high fee and low throughput due to the massive scale of the blockchain over the years in Defi and NFTs. Our community members can put up with the high fees on minting and trading NFTs because the transaction volumes are relatively low.
However, as we make a pivot transition into Defi which will require significantly large transaction volumes per user basis, the high fee on Ethereum can throttle the potential return of liquidity providers, farmers, stakers and swappers on Mutant Swap, as such not fully realize the maximum value of Mutant Coins and MP NFT.
Aurora is built on top of Near, arguably has the best scaling tech through Sharding on the market at the time of writing, and is an EVM compatible blockchain meaning all the development work MutantPunksNFT core dev team has been building on the Ethereum blockchain can be completely reused without any wasted dev work. Besides, Aurora currently subsidizes to offer $0 gas fee for all transactions on its blockchain. It's been battle tested with multiple Dapps launches and has built an excellent Bridging Tokenssolution where users can bridge any tokens from Ethereum to Aurora and vice versa.
Our dev team has been developing on Near and Aurora from the very early stage of their development and impressed by the adoption and development maturity over time of the blockchain. Being early on a new upcoming blockchain also gives our ecosystem "early mover" advantage where anticipated large liquidity will be pouring in from other chains as Aurora and Near gain more adoption (Think Aurora as Polygon, Avalanche while Near as Solana).
