Market-Check: Aurora Market

Aurora greets the arriving user directly with a feeling of security.
The Endgame Captcha shows that the creators were not afraid to accept support when it comes to security.
The market itself already demands standards in the choice of the password that other markets miserably neglect.

2FA is mandatory for merchants, but it should also be for users. This fails due to the implementation ability of some users who simply do not want to use PGP or are simply too lazy to do so.
This can’t be blamed on the market, which meets all the required standards, especially for merchants.

Multisig is not yet implemented, but should be available soon according to the an option, not as the main payment method.

The freedom to decide for yourself how and what to do with your money does not stop there. Aurora is one of the few markets that give users the choice to use the recently introduced Bitcoin or Monero wallets at all.

You can also pay the bill directly from your own wallet, without depositing the money in your own market wallet.

The bill? the reader is now rightly asking. Yes, the bill. On Aurora you can put different items of a vendor in the shopping cart and then when you have everything you can check out with one payment.

Which brings us to the variety, which is higher than on other markets, where otherwise on average 14-15 items per vendor are the average, it is 21 on Aurora. The selection is therefore large.

Also the price range moves massively outside a norm, which means you get both cheap discount goods and premium products in the upper price range.
So far, we have only been able to observe this to this extent on the very large markets. This has not yet been the case on a market like Aurora, which has only been in existence for just under 3 months.

The service is in our eyes exemplary for a young market, no request took longer than 24 hours until it was answered, and also many dealers seem to work there, unlike usual even on weekends and be there for their customers.
Weekend rest is also less common on Aurora than elsewhere.

In conclusion, the whole thing can be summarized very crisply.

Aurora does a lot of things right from the start. There are people at work here who know where the journey should go, who don’t reach their destination by trial and error, but rather have a timetable that they stick to.

Standard means of payment here besides Bitcoin also the Monero,
it is no longer possible without it.

Due to all this and also following the circumstance how young the market is, we have been very careful in the evaluation not to grade too exuberantly and still remain fair.
