Connecting to the Application

How to connect to the Aver Exchange application.

The example screen captures shown here may look slightly different to your experience depending on the wallet provider/single sign-on (SSO) method you use or the device and browser you use.

In general, the steps for all wallets/SSO methods and instances of the application are similar.

Once you've selected a network, you can connect to the application.

Select your Connection Method

Currently, you can connect to Aver with a Solana web wallet or with Torus, which allows you to connect using a SSO authentication method (e.g. Google, Facebook, etc.).

Solana Web Wallet

If you opt to use a Solana web wallet, check the Supported Wallets section to see which providers can be used on Aver and the Installing a Wallet section to learn how to install a web wallet on your device.

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.

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. Read the Selecting a Network section to confirm which network you're using:

Remember to switch between networks when using different instances of other Solana applications.

Once you've navigated to the Aver application and connected your wallet to the right network, you can connect to the application.

You’ll see a button labelled ‘Get Started’ in the top right-hand corner of the window.

Click this button to trigger a popup with supported Solana wallet providers.

Once you select your wallet, this will trigger a request to authorize a connection between Aver and your wallet. Toggle the 'Trust this app' option to prevent this popup from appearing each time you connect to Aver. Once you connect, you can then proceed to Onboarding.

If you select a wallet which is not installed on your device/browser, either an error will occur or you will be redirected to the website of the wallet provider in question.

Torus (Single Sign-on Authentication)

Participants who prefer to use email or any other SSO authentication method rather than Solana web wallets can use Torus, an open-source, non-custodial key management network.

To connect with Torus, navigate to the application first. You’ll see a button labelled ‘Get Started’ in the top right-hand corner of the window.

Click this button to trigger a popup, and click on Torus. This will trigger another popup that asks you to set up a digital wallet by signing into one of the following SSO services:

  • Google

  • Facebook

  • Twitter

  • Discord

  • Email

Once you sign in and complete authorization , a digital wallet is automatically created and linked to your SSO account. You can then proceed to Onboardin.

To access your wallet again, simply log back into the account you used by following the same steps as above.

Onboarding

There are 3 steps to onboarding:

  1. Signing the community rules

  2. Picking your favourite markets

  3. Configuring your intitial Preferences

Signing Community Rules

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.

Pick your Favourite Markets

Next, you can pick the markets that interest you so that the market discovery page is tailored to your interests.

Configuring Initial Preferences

Lastly, you can configure your preferences so that your trading experience is tailored to you. Here, you can pick your preferred odds format, size format and complexity of betting experience. You can change these settings at any time, and configure your preferences further after onboarding. Please see the Configuring Preferences section for more information.

Now that you've connected to Aver and completed the onboarding process, it's time to start trading!

Check your connection

If you've connected successfully, you’ll see a compressed version of your wallet’s address in place of the ‘Get Started’ button (top right-hand corner of the window) and your USDC balance to the left of the wallet address.

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.

Approving transactions

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.

Disconnecting your wallet

Click on the button containing your compressed wallet address and click the ➡️ icon on the bottom left of toggled drop down menu to disconnect your wallet from the application.

Now that you're connected, it's time to start trading!
