What Are Intents in DeFi?

Decentralized finance (DeFi) redefines financial transactions by empowering users with the ability to leverage various DeFi products to create intricate financial structures known as "money legos." However, this flexibility leads to convoluted workflows as users navigate different DeFi platforms, bridges, and liquidity pools to achieve their financial objectives. Aperture Finance addresses this complexity through its innovative concept of Intents.

Intents mark a departure from the traditional transactional model in Web3 and DeFi. In conventional transactions, the processes are often too intricate for average users to comprehend fully. Intents revolutionize this by granting DeFi users access to advanced execution and pricing mechanisms previously exclusive to large trading firms with institutional resources and in-house development teams.

Aperture's Liquidity Intents, leveraging Uniswap V3, streamline transactions by allowing users to specify their end goals. For instance, users can set parameters for liquidity position rebalancing based on specific price thresholds and acceptable swap impact ranges. A network of decentralized solvers collaborates to propose transaction flows, which are then simulated and ranked within the Aperture smart contract. Noteworthy partners such as Propeller Heads, Tokka Labs, and Enso contribute to this solver network's robustness.

Aperture Finance is at the forefront of AI-powered intents, harnessing its proprietary solver network to enable a wide array of intent-based transactions across diverse scenarios, catering seamlessly to the requirements of both advanced market makers and individual retail users. At its core is IntentsGPT, an innovative user interface introduced by Aperture that streamlines user interactions and enhances the overall user experience. Through AI-driven smart solver simulations, Aperture’s solver network automates intricate on-chain processes, fine-tuning transaction routing for optimized pricing and execution to benefit all users.

Details can be found in the Airdrop section on its $APTR token page.

Future Roadmap

Aperture Finance's future roadmap includes continuous development of its AI-powered tool, IntentsGPT, that will enable the user to express their intent in natural language and have it mirrored back to them in a readable Domain-Specific Language (DSL), which can then be delivered to solvers as the user’s declaration of truth. This innovative feature aims to facilitate user-friendly interactions with the platform and enhance accessibility to complex financial instruments within the DeFi ecosystem.
