Use a native token

Prerequisite steps

  • You should have a running CDK stack.
  • Follow one of the tutorials linked below if you haven’t yet spun up a CDK stack.

Deployment guides


The rollup documentation is currently being updated.

Use a custom native token

  1. Go to the ...contracts/deployment folder and find the deploy_parameters.json file.


    The directory naming is dependent on your build type (rollup or validium).

  2. Open the deploy_parameters.json file and add a new entry:

        "multiplierGas": ""
        "gasTokenAddress": "<TOKEN-ADDRESS>"

    TOKEN-ADDRESS is the address of a deployed ERC20 L1 token.

    If you leave the value as empty string, the ETH token address is used as a default.
