Balancer V2


What are Balancer Price Oracles?

Balancer V2 introduces price oracles that are resistant to sandwich attacks by leveraging accumulators. There are two types of oracles that can be queried:
  • Instant — A more up-to-date price but less resilient to manipulation
  • Resilient — Less up-to-date but more resilient to manipulation

How do I decide which type of Oracle to choose?

Choosing a price type varies depending on each use case. For example, lending protocols will likely use a Resilient Oracle while prediction markets could use the Instant Price Oracle.
