What is Aurora Chain?

Auroracoin is a decentralised, peer-to-peer, and secure cryptocurrency released as an alternative to the Icelandic Króna to bypass governmental restrictions. It was launched with the aim of becoming the ‘official’ cryptocurrency of Iceland and was a pioneer in the area of country-specific cryptocurrencies. Launched on the 25th of January, 2014, by an anonymous developer who went by the pseudonym of Baldur Friggjar Óðinsson, Auroracoin is based on the Scrypt algorithm with a Proof of Work mechanism. In 2016, Auroracoin was updated to use a multi-algorithm architecture forked from DigiByte. This PoW consensus mechanism utilises device hashing power to solve a complex mathematical problem in order to authenticate a transaction proposed to be stored in the blockchain. Auroracoin is one of the only cryptocurrencies to use a combination of five different hashing algorithms, namely Grøstl, Qubit, scrypt, SHA-256, and Skein. It has also introduced security measures such as Automatic checkpointing, and protecting against known flaws present in the BTC blockchain, such as 51% block replacement attacks. Despite its initial popularity, Auroracoin has seen little to no activity for a while. However, it is expected to not go lower than the recent low, and might see a rise as Auroracoin plans to launch a more aggressive marketing campaign in Iceland to promote the coin among the masses.

How do I buy Aurora Chain in 2023?
