Meet the aTokens

What are aTokens?

Aave interest bearing tokens (aTokens for short) are minted upon deposit and burned when redeemed. The aTokens are pegged 1:1 to the value of the underlying asset that is deposited in Aave protocol. ATokens, such as aDai, can be freely stored, transferred, and traded.

While the underlying asset is loaned out to borrowers, ATokens accrue interest in real time, directly in your wallet! Seriously, you can watch your balance grow every minute.
