[AIP-52] zkEVM deployment


Fry, 0xMaha, 0xAhtle


We are excited to share Aura Finance’s proposal for a strategic cross-chain deployment onto the zkevm. This represents a key achievement in Aura’s cross-chain expansion strategy, with the goal of unlocking new growth opportunities and enriching the Balancer ecosystem.

After successful launches on other L2s, Aura Finance is gearing up for deployment on zkevm. This move will enable users to deposit BPTs (Balancer Pool Tokens) on zkevm, granting access to the cross-chain veBAL delegated boost. The deployment will also facilitate the bridging of AURA tokens from Ethereum Mainnet to the zkevm.

Audits and testing

Security remains our top priority at Aura. All newly introduced contracts and integrations have undergone thorough audits, with audit reports received from Halborn and Zellic. Our new contracts have also undergone rigorous testing and independent review.


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

  • Cross-chain contracts deployed on the zkevm chain.
  • Call setTrustedRemote on the AuraOFT with the zkevm AuraOFT remote data.
  • Call setTrustedRemote on the L1Coordinator with the zkevm L2Coordinator remote data.
  • Call setBridgeDelegate on the L1Coordinator with the zkevm 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 expressing support for deploying Aura’s cross-chain system to the zkevm chain.


we all know that zkevm will be have a key role (and so, TVL), in the future, so this move for Aura is only natural to pursue.
Gud development.

This is another valuable integration from Aura contributors–great work all around.

Polygon zxEVM has ~6m TVL on Balancer without Aura deployment there. Plenty of room to grow and make Balancer the top DEX there! Full support.

Excited to see further Aura expansion. zkEVM had its issues but it seems stable enough now to go for it :slight_smile:
