tokenbridge Gitter License: LGPL v3.0


Welcome to the POA TokenBridge monorepository!

Please note that this repository as a work in progress.


The POA TokenBridge allows users to transfer assets between two chains in the Ethereum ecosystem. It is composed of several elements which are contained within this monorepository.

For a complete picture of the POA TokenBridge functionality, it is useful to explore each subrepository.


Sub-repositories maintained within this monorepo are listed below.

Sub-repository Description
Oracle Responsible for listening to bridge related events and authorizing asset transfers.
Monitor Tool for checking balances and unprocessed events in bridged networks.
Deployment Ansible playbooks for deploying cross-chain bridges.
Oracle-E2E End to end tests for the Oracle
Monitor-E2E End to end tests for the Monitor
Deployment-E2E End to end tests for the Deployment
Commons Interfaces, constants and utilities shared between the sub-repositories
E2E-Commons Common utilities and configuration used in end to end tests
ALM DApp interface tool for AMB Live Monitoring
Burner-wallet-plugin TokenBridge Burner Wallet 2 Plugin

Additionally there are Smart Contracts used to manage bridge validators, collect signatures, and confirm asset relay and disposal.

Available deployments

WETC Bridge Volta TokenBridge & DAI bridge to Volta Chain
Artis Brige
Tenda bridge & xDai-to-Tenda bridge

Network Definitions

Bridging occurs between two networks.

  • Home - or Native - is a network with fast and inexpensive operations. All bridge operations to collect validator confirmations are performed on this side of the bridge.

  • Foreign can be any chain; generally it refers to the Ethereum mainnet.

Operational Modes

The POA TokenBridge provides four operational modes:

  • ERC20-to-Native: Pre-existing tokens in the Foreign network are locked and coins are minted in the Home network. In this mode, the Home network consensus engine invokes Parity's Block Reward contract to mint coins per the bridge contract request. More Information: xDai Chain
  • Arbitrary-Message: Transfer arbitrary data between two networks as so the data could be interpreted as an arbitrary contract method invocation.

Initializing the monorepository

Clone the repository:

git clone

If there is no need to build docker images for the TokenBridge components (oracle, monitor), initialize submodules, install dependencies, compile the Smart Contracts:

yarn initialize

Then refer to the corresponding README files to get information about particular TokenBridge component.


Running linter for all JS projects:

yarn lint


Running tests for all projects:

yarn test

Additionally there are end-to-end tests for Oracle and Monitor.

For details on building, running and developing please refer to respective READMEs in sub-repositories.

Building, running and deploying

Please refer to the instructions in sub-directories. Configuration details are available here.
