Bridge Doors


The EVM compatible sidechain implementation is a proof of concept extension to the XRP Ledger protocol and is for development purposes only. There is no official amendment currently and it is not available on the production Mainnet. The EVM compatible sidechain bridge is connected to the XRP Ledger Devnet. Do not send transactions in Mainnet.

Bridge doors on the EVM sidechain are Solidity smart contracts that have the logic to execute all transactions introduced by XLS-38d.

The bridge doors don't hold any assets, instead sending them to a Gnosis Safe multisig account.

Bridge doors require permissions to execute safe transactions, unlocking assets when enough attestations are received for an event. As such, there is a close relationship between a bridge door and Gnosis Safe. If at any time the bridge governers want to pause or deactivate the bridge, they can disable the bridge's permissions to execute any more operations.
