Aurory's Cross-Platform Journey Begins With Arbitrum
We’re incredibly excited to be integrating with Arbitrum as the first step in our cross-platform journey! In this short article, we’re going to answer some of the burning questions you may have when it comes to this integration and our overall cross-platform strategy that is made possible thanks to our in-house-built tech, SyncSpace.
Why take Aurory cross-platform?
One word — accessibility. Different platforms have their own vibrant communities and user bases. Expanding Aurory to multiple blockchains allows us to tap into these diverse communities, creating frictionless onramps to our platform from these communities. This broader reach can drive adoption, create network effects, and foster a more vibrant ecosystem around our games by allowing players to interact with our platform on their native blockchain. The same can be said for traditional gaming distribution platforms, which can have restrictions around blockchain mechanics. Using SyncSpace, we have the opportunity to tap into these audiences by creating versions of our games that are compliant with certain web2 platforms while having minimal implications for the web3 side of our games.
Our vision of a cross-platform future for Aurory is one that is rooted in the idea that players should be able to easily discover Aurory with minimal friction. Ultimately, it is this approach that we believe will allow us to reach millions of users around the world.
Is Aurory leaving Solana?
Aurory isn’t leaving Solana. We’ve always been an open platform where users can try our games even without having a crypto wallet. This integration can be viewed as similar to the deployment of the social login feature when SyncSpace was first released. Cross-chain integrations simply open up new onramps for users to interact with our platform from their native blockchain. We have plans to integrate with additional blockchains in the future.
What assets can be transferred between the Arbitrum and Solana blockchains?
All on-chain Aurory assets ($AURY, Aurorians, Nefties, Eggs, Collectibles, Skins).
How do I switch back and forth between the Solana and Arbitrum chains?
Our native infrastructure, SyncSpace, allows you to freely move your assets from one chain to the other.
Watch the short video below for a tutorial on how to move assets around using our platform:
How do I know if my assets are in SyncSpace, on Solana, or on Arbitrum?
When viewing items in your inventory, they will each have a corresponding SyncSpace, Solana, or Arbitrum logo in the corner of the image to let you know where the asset is.
With this new integration, what changes for Solana users?
SyncSpace is now the new entry point for all users to interact with nearly all experiences on the Aurory platform.
What this means:
Nefties need to be in SyncSpace in order to play with them.
In order to make an offer on the marketplace, you’ll need to have $AURY in SyncSpace.
In order to list items on the marketplace, they need to be in SyncSpace first.
In order to hatch a Neftie egg, you’ll need to have the egg and $AURY in SyncSpace.
Can I do Aurorians on Expeditions on Arbitrum?
Not yet. You’ll be able to do them once Expeditions are fully migrated to SyncSpace. For now, Aurorians need to be on Solana to send them on Expeditions.
Can I buy $AURY on Arbitrum?
Yes, you can. You’ll need to deposit USDC from Arbitrum into SyncSpace, and you’ll be able to buy $AURY directly from our website. Arbitrum DEX pools will be setup soon as well for buying/selling $AURY.
