The Aave protocol is an ecosystem of multiple markets, with the first market being the main Aave Market.
- LendingPool: Handles core protocol functionality (supply, borrow, withdraw, repay, flashloan, liquidationCall)
- LendingPoolAddressesProvider : Registry of addresses which comprise the pool logic
- AaveOracle: Registry of price feeds for each Aave reserve asset (Chainlink oracles in production)
- WETHGateway: Intermediary contract for wrapping/unwrapping network base assets (ETH, MATIC, AVAX, etc.) and performing pool actions (deposit, borrow, repay, withdraw)
- ProtocolDataProvider: View contract to fetch data on specific Aave reserve or user account
- UiPoolDataProvider: View contract to fetch arrays of all Aave reserves and all positions for a specified user
- UiIncentiveDataProvider: View contract to fetch arrays of all incentive emissions on Aave reserves and claimable incentives for specific user
- Kovan (deprecated, use Goerli)

The Kovan network has been deprecated, and replaced with Goerli as the maintained testnet for Ethereum. The Kovan market can still be accessed via historical IPFS links of the Aave interface such as these. Link 1 Link 2.
For assets on testnets, we use different versions of the token (e.g. testnet Dai). This is to ensure enough liquidity for our reserves and to easily mint more tokens when needed. If you are developing on a testnet and require tokens, go to https://testnet.aave.com/faucet, making sure that your wallet is set to the relevant testnet.
As testnet assets may change frequently, ensure you are using the right asset by minting from our testnet faucet (as mentioned above) and use the ProtocolDataProvider to fetch all the relevant assets using
