[AIP-50] Base Deployment

Authors: Fry, 0xMaha, 0xAhtle


We are delighted to present Aura Finance’s proposal for strategic cross-chain deployment onto Base Chain. This is another significant milestone for Aura’s cross-chain rollout, aiming to unlock growth opportunities, expand our presence, and elevate the Balancer ecosystem.

Having achieved successful launches on Arbtrium, Optimism, and Polygon PoS™️ and Gnosis, Aura Finance is now preparing for deployment on Base Chain. This move will allow users to deposit BPTs (Balancer Pool Tokens) on Base Chain, providing access to the cross-chain veBAL delegated boost.

Moreover, it enables seamless bridging of AURA tokens from Ethereum Mainnet to Base Chain, further enhancing accessibility and flexibility for our community.

Audits and testing

At Aura, security remains our utmost priority. All newly introduced contracts and integrations have undergone thorough audits. We have received two audit reports from Halborn and Zellic.

Additionally, our new contracts have been subjected to rigorous testing, boasting 100% unit test coverage, fork tests, fuzz tests and independent review.


Should this AIP be approved, the following changes will be implemented:

  1. Cross chain contracts deployed on Base.
  2. Call setTrustedRemote on the AuraOFT with the Base AuraOFT remote data
  3. Call setTrustedRemote on the L1Coordinator with the Base L2Coordinator remote data
  4. Call setBridgeDelegate on the L1Coordinator with the Base bridgeDelegateReceiver address


This vote will be a single-choice vote. You may vote “For” or “Against” this proposal, or choose to abstain from the vote. By voting “For” this proposal, you are voting in favor of deploying Aura’s cross chain system to Base Chain.


This is another strategic move to be present where Balancer is, and Base is a chain with a lot of potential. Excellent news for Aura.


Apparently Base is the cool chain of this quarter, so with Balancer already deployed on it, it only makes sense for Aura to move forward here.

I support this proposal.


As part of the continuous expansion of Aura on L2s, Base is a natural step to onboard a wider community of active LPs and governors, nice work !
