Building on Aura

How to integrate with the Aura Finance protocol

These docs are still a work in progress. Reach out on Discord if you have any requests or get stuck integrating

Finding the contracts

Find all Aura contracts here:

With modified code from the Convex platform here:

Depositing BPTs

All gauge deposit pools are 4626 vaults, with the asset being Balancers LP token (BPT). Simply approve the reward pool and call the deposit function.

Find the reference implementation here:

Note: auraBAL and vlAURA reward contracts are not on the 4626 standard

Note: StashToken contracts are not ERC20 compliant. convex-platform/contracts/contracts/StashToken.sol is designed to interact only with VirtualBalanceRewardPool and ExtraRewardStashV3. AnyextraRewards is distributed by a VirtualBalanceRewardPool, which is linked to a StashToken, the StashToken wraps the extraReward as a baseToken.

Aura is price agnostic and thus does not require oracles. Flash loans or any other type of price manipulation or front running do not affect the Aura system.
