Alex Shevchenko: CEO of Aurora Labs
Alex Shevchenko is the CEO of Aurora Labs – a bridge and EVM scaling solution for Ethereum built on top of NEAR Protocol as a smart contract. He has a PhD in physics & math, has been an entrepreneur and blockchain enthusiast since 2015, and developed Bitfury’s Exonum – a blockchain-as-a-service solution.
Building the Biggest L2 on Near Foundation
In an exclusive interview with cryptonews.com, Alex Shevchenko talked about building the biggest L2 on Near Foundation (with 1/2 of Near’s TVL coming from Aurora). This would allow users to move assets between different blockchains without any extra steps or delays – creating a frictionless experience for developers using the platform.
Aurora’s Customized Enterprise Blockchain Solution
Alex also discussed Aurora’s customized enterprise blockchain solutions which provide businesses with tools to create secure digital ledgers that are tailored specifically to their needs across multiple industries including finance, healthcare, government services etc.. Additionally he touched upon Aurora’s native wallet which simplifies managing digital assets such as cryptocurrencies or tokens created through smart contracts by providing users with an easy to use interface that securely stores their funds while allowing them to quickly send them back out again if needed.
Frictionless Blockchain Experiences for Developers
Furthermore he spoke about how his team is working towards making sure that developers have access to frictionless blockchain experiences when using their platform; this includes reducing the amount of objects needed for operations such as deploying a contract or creating transactions in order minimize fees associated with these activities thus improving user experience overall when dealing with decentralized applications (dApps).
EVM Gas vs Near Gas on Aurora
Finally Alex offered insight into EVM gas versus near gas when using his team’s platform; he explained that because they are running both protocols simultaneously it makes sense to use one over the other depending on what type of transaction is being performed as each protocol offers different advantages when it comes down to cost effectiveness or speed respectively.
