Connecting to Aver
This guide explains the process for connecting to the Aver application with your Solana wallet.
The example screen captures shown here may look slightly different to your experience as a result of using different a wallet provider or interacting with Aver on mobile devices, desktop devices or different desktop browsers.
In general however, the steps should be broadly similar for all wallets and instances of the application unless otherwise called out.

Before connecting your wallet you’ll have to decide which network you want to use first. You can interact with two different versions of the Aver Exchange application through two different networks:

The Mainnet application involves real risk when placing trades. To interact with this application, you’ll need to have real $SOL and $USDC in your Solana wallet.
The Devnet application is a sandbox version of the exchange that exists to test functionality of the app and experiment with the UI – therefore there is no real risk involved when placing trades. To interact with this application, you’ll need to have simulated $SOL and $USDC in your Solana wallet.
You can read more about funding your wallet, what USDC and SOL are, and why you’ll need them in the Funding Your Wallet section of the documentation.

To begin, you will need to ensure your wallet is connected to the network that corresponds to the version of Aver you wish to interact with.
The graphic below shows how to connect to each network for Phantom, Solflare and Slope wallets – but the process is similar for other wallet providers too.
Connecting to Aver Networks on Solfare, Phantom and Slope Wallets
For most wallets this can be achieved by navigating to your wallet's Settings tab, clicking Network or Change Network, and selecting the network you intend to interact on.
Once you're finished, remember to switch your wallet's network back before interacting with other production Solana applications.

Navigate to the selected Aver web application to connect your wallet to it.
You’ll see a button labelled ‘Connect Wallet’ in the top right-hand corner of the window. Click this button to toggle a dropdown list of supported Solana wallet providers.
Connecting Wallet to the Aver Application
Once you select your wallet, this will trigger a request to authorize a connection between Aver and your wallet.
If you select a wallet which is not installed on your browser, either an error will occur or you will be redirected to the website of the wallet provider in question.
If this is your first time connecting to Aver with this wallet, you’ll need to familiarize yourself with the community rules and sign them with your wallet to validate your understanding and agreement.
You may be prompted to sign and validate your acceptance of the Community Rules at other points in the future. This may arise if, for example:
  • You have created a new address / public key and intend to trade with that (since acceptance of the Community Rules is recorded against the wallet's public key)
  • The Community Rules have been updated and you are required to confirm that you accept the new terms.
There is no cost involved in connecting your wallet and 'signing' acceptance of the rules. The wallet simply verifies this agreement within the browser.

You’ll see a compressed version of your wallet’s address in place of the ‘Connect Wallet’ button if your wallet has connected successfully.
If you click on this, you’ll see a dropdown menu of options. Navigate to the Balances tab to check if the balance of $SOL and $USDC in your wallet are visible. If they are visible, that means your wallet has connected successfully.
You must ensure your wallet is always connected to interact with Aver. You will not be able to approve any transactions or see balances, information or records specific to your wallet when not connected.

To take any action on Aver – such as placing a new order, cancelling an existing one, cashing-out a position, etc. – you will be required to authorize the request with your wallet.
This check prevents actions being taken against the owner of a wallet without their consent. When your wallet ‘signs’ a transaction the blockchain receives evidence that you have the required permissions to carry out the required action.
Solana wallets supported 'auto approval' of transactions in the past, though this has since been deprecated for almost all providers for security reasons.
For this reason, all transactions will require users to manually confirm each request within the wallet's pop-up.

Click on the button containing your compressed wallet address and click Disconnect in the toggled drop down menu to disconnect your wallet from the application.
