Liquidity Mining
Liquidity mining/incentives was implemented in the Main Aave market via AIP-16, enabling incentives for both depositing and borrowing. Incentives are also currently implemented on the Polygon market & Avalanche market, using the same implementation details as described on this page.

Integration Guide

0. Prerequisites

Your user(s) should already have a position in the protocol. Depending on the market and incentives that are enabled, they should already have a deposit, borrow, or both, in one of the incentivised assets.
To check if an asset is current incentivised, use the getAssetData() method, passing in the associated aToken or debtToken address of the incentivised asset. To get a list of associated tokens per asset, see also getReserveTokensAddresses() in the Protocol Data Provider.

1. Check the user(s) reward balance

Call the getRewardsBalance() method, passing in the relevant token addresses (aTokens and/or debtTokens) as an array.

2. Claim the accrued rewards

2.1 Claim rewards from the user

Call the claimRewards() method, passing in the relevant token addresses (aTokens and/or debtTokens) as an array. The msg.sender must match the user's address that has accrued the rewards.

2.2 Claim rewards on behalf of the user

A claimer must have been set via the setClaimer() method, enabling the caller to claim on the user's behalf.
Call the claimRewardsOnBehalf() method, passing in the relevant token addresses (aTokens and/or debtTokens) as an array. The msg.sender must have been previously set via setClaimer().

3. Consider the token that is rewarded

For the main market, stkAAVE is rewarded and automatically accrues interest based on the Staking AAVE parameters once claimed. There is an associated 10 day cool down period to convert stkAAVE to AAVE, with a 2 day redeem period to do so. Ensure that this information is presented to the user and handled correctly.
For the Polygon market, WMATIC is rewarded with no 'lock up' period. Ensure that you account for the difference between WMATIC and the native MATIC, specifically that WMATIC needs to be unwrapped to MATIC. This can be done by calling withdraw() on the WMATIC contract.

4. Calculating Incentives APY

APY = normalizedEmissionPerSecond * rewardTokenPriceInEth * SECONDS_PER_YEAR / normalizedTotalTokenSupply
Note:
    normalizedEmissionPerSecond = emissionPerSecond/RWARD_TOKEN_DECIMALS
    Reward Token is AAVE for mainnet and Matic for polygon.
    normalizedTotalTokenSupply = tokenTotalSupplyNormalized * tokenPriceInEth,where token is the incentivized a/s/v token and token price is same as underlying asset's price.
    You can get price for reward token as well as reserve token from AavePriceOracle
