PoS Mainnet Multi-Signatures

Purpose & Capabilities

The primary role of multi-signature wallets (multisigs) is to facilitate contract upgrades during the early stages of development. As these contracts become more robust, Polygon plans to:

  • Transition from multisigs to governance-controlled proxies.
  • Implement timelocks for added security.
  • Phase out multisigs entirely in the long term.

It's important to note that the existing multisigs do not have the capability to censor transactions, including bridge transactions.

Custom Child ERC20s Mapping

Multisig Address4/8 Multisig
PurposeTo enable the mapping of custom ChildERC20s with Mainnet contracts.
RightsLimited to mapping; no access to Child tokens or deposit/withdrawal rights.

Permissionless Mapping

Multisig AddressPermissionless Mapping of Standard ChildERC20 Tokens (No Multisig Required)
PurposeFxPortal supports permissionless token mapping of standard ChildERC20 for any ERC20 token on Ethereum.
*Plans are underway to transition these functions to governance. We are currently exploring options such as Aave's governance contracts and Compound’s timelock contracts.
