The CORE Router is a set of contracts that allow you to connect into CORE liquidity so that you can interact with the CORE ecosystem. The router is designed to facilitate liquidity management and interactions within the ecosystem. Several functions were tested in the initial version:
- Liquidity Zap. Convert Tokens into ETH.
- Wrapper. Wrap ERC-95 into and out of CORE.
- Flash Arbitrage. Utilize CORE liquidity to increase yield.
Included a 4th proposed function of Swapper (Dex).

Here I present some ideas to expand the functionality of the CORE Router.
I excluded obvious ones like flashloan swaps etc.
Also after having made this post I believe cLEND should be formally a part of the CORE Router.
Disclaimer, I am simply discussing these ideas. I have no clue how viable they could be but worth discussing. Also these functions could also bring in potential security risks, especially the more functions the router has the more risk it entails.
