Selected Contract Functions

Explanation of most commonly used smart contract functions

SpokePool state-modifying functions

The spoke pool contract is where deposits are originated and fulfilled.


This triggers a deposit request of tokens to another chain with the following parameters. The originChainId is automatically set to the chain ID on which the SpokePool is deployed. For example, sending a deposit from the Optimism_SpokePool will set its originChainId equal to 10.

Note on sending ETH: deposit is a payable function meaning it is possible to send native ETH instead of wrapped ETH (i.e. WETH). If you choose to send ETH, you must set msg.value equal to amount.

Note on approvals: the caller must approve the SpokePool to transfer amount of tokens.

Note on amount limits: If the amount is set too high, it can take a while for the deposit to be filled depending on available relayer liquidity. If the amount is set too low, it can be unprofitable to relay regardless of the relayer fee %. Query the suggested max and min limits here. The contracts will not revert if the amount is set outside of the recommended range, so it is highly recommended to set amount within the suggested limits to avoid locking up funds for an unexpected length of time.

Note on setting quoteTimestamp:

  1. Call the read-only function getCurrentTime() to get the current UNIX timestamp on the origin chain. e.g. this could return: 1665418548.

  2. Call the read-only function depositQuoteTimeBuffer() to get the buffer around the current time that the quoteTimestamp must be set to. e.g. this could return: 600.

  3. quoteTimestamp must be <= currentTime + buffer and >= currentTime - buffer.




Receiver of bridged funds on destination chain.



Bridged token address on origin chain.



Amount of tokens to send on origin chain. Receiver receives this amount minus fees on destination chain.



Where bridged funds should be sent to recipient. Recipient will receive the equivalent of the originToken on the destination chain. The mapping of destination and origin tokens can be queried here.



% of amount to pay to relayer. Must be less than 0.5e18 (i.e. 50%). Suggested fees can be queried here. Be careful: if this % is set too low, relayers could be disincentivized to fill this deposit quickly. This can be sped up by calling speedUpDeposit.



Timestamp of deposit. Used by relayers to compute the LP fee % for the deposit. Must be withindepositQuoteTimeBuffer() of the current time.



Data that can be passed to the recipient if it is a contract. If no message is to be sent, set this field to an empty bytes array: ""(i.e. bytes` of length 0, or the "empty string"). See Composable Bridging for examples on how messaging can be used.



This parameter can be set to protect against front-running in the new UBA fee model. Stay tuned for updates about this feature. For now, set this to UINT256.MAX_UINT to avoid deposit reverts.


Some of a pending deposit's parameters can be modified by calling this function. If a deposit has been completed already, this function will not revert but it won't be able to be filled anymore with the updated params. It is the responsibility of the depositor to verify that the deposit has not been fully filled before calling this function.

A depositor can request modifications by signing a hash containing the updated details and information uniquely identifying the deposit to relay. This information ensures that this signature cannot be re-used for other deposits.

We use the EIP-712 standard for hashing and signing typed data. Specifically, we use the version of the encoding known as "v4", as implemented by the JSON RPC method eth_signedTypedDataV4 in MetaMask.

You can see how the message to be signed is reconstructed in Solidity here.

Successfully calling this function will emit an event RequestedSpeedUpDeposit which can be used by relayers to fill the original deposit with the new parameters. Depositors should assume that the parameters emitted with the highest relayerFeePct will be used, since they are incentivized to use the highest fee possible.

Any relayer can use updated deposit parameters by calling fillRelayWithUpdatedDeposit instead of fillRelay.




Sender of deposit to be sped up. Does not need to equal msg.sender



New relayer fee % that relayers can use when calling fillDepositWithUpdatedDeposit



UUID of deposit to be sped up



New recipient of deposit.



Updated data that is sent to updatedRecipient. As described in section above, this should be set to 0x for the forseeable future.
