Rewards aggregator
When the users receive frToken, they can trade them on the rewards aggregator.
When the user repays the borrow interest or deposits liquidity through the Lock & Earn operation, they receive an amount of frToken (e.g. frALGO). The tokens received should be exchanged through the Rewards Aggregator. The users can choose between instantly exchanging the frToken at a specific rate or exchanging them at a more convenient rate by agreeing to vest the rewards for a specified duration.
The list of available ASAs with which to exchange frTokens will be constantly evolving as they are provided by Folks Finance and/or third parties that wish to distribute them through Folks Finance.

Good-To-Know: What is a frToken?

The folks rewards token or frToken, is the asset distributed to users for performing operations on Folks Finance. frToken is instrumental to the system's operations, and the protocol itself mints them. They are distributed when users repay their loans' interests, or provide liquidity through Lock & Earn. These tokens can be traded with the rewards token through the rewards aggregator.

Good-To-Know: What is a provider?

Rewards providers are external protocols/partners or Folks Finance itself (issuing rewards in the form of its governance token), that wish to distribute rewards on a specific protocol pool for Lock & Earn deposits, and interest repayments. Any party approved by Folks Finance can act as a provider and distribute tokens as rewards.
Let's see an example:
  1. 1.
    Protocol A decided to distribute its token named AToken, as a reward for those users who interact with the ALGO Pool.
  2. 2.
    Users who deposit ALGO in to Lock & Earn or repay interest on ALGO loans will receive frALGO.
  3. 3.
    Now the user can trade the frALGO with ATokens. They can choose whether make an instant swap and obtain the ATokens immediately, or lock the frALGO for a vesting period and obtain a larger amount of ATokens.
Reward tokens are selected and whitelisted on the basis of strict requirements in order to guarantee distribution of the best crypto-assets to users of Folks Finance. In the future, Folks Finance Governance will take on this decision.
