Introducing Multi-chain Liquidity Aggregation

Access to Aurora’s liquidity from Ref Finance



Behind the scenes

  1. Query trading data (price, slippage, fee, etc.) on Aurora using the Aurora’s Software Development Kits (SDKs)
  2. Find optimal route (best price) for a specified amount of Token A to Token B accross all liquidity pools on Near and Aurora
  3. Swap — Action that combines:
  • Transfer of tokens to a mapping address on Aurora via a cross-network contract call (credit to Evgeny and Vadim:
  • Swap on Aurora using the user’s Near account keys
  • Transfer of tokens from the mapping address on Aurora to the user’s Near wallet
