Development & Product Spotlight 🕵️‍♂️


As the first product for Eigen, EigenSecret will be launched at the end of August.

EigenSecret is a cross-chain bridge for token circulation between EigenRollup Chain and Ethereum. It has been deployed in Eigen Devnet. From our benchmark, it takes about 20 seconds to deposit Ether to Eigen Token, and about 20 mins to withdraw from Eigen Token to Ether.

In addition, EigenSecret supports privacy smart contracts on EigenRollup Chain, which means the end-user can encrypt their input of contract method, i.e. ``, in the transaction, and send it to the sequencer. EGVM can handle the encrypted `` and update the contract state in cipher format.

EigenSecret is implemented by the Vue.js framework, and has been opensourced at

Now, only the bridge between Ether and Eigen Token is launched. More bridges for different tokens are still under development!


Upgraded the key management protocols. The new protocol adopts the Verifiable Random Function to select a set of key updating nodes and generate the new TEE key pair for the next epoch.

Released the TEE privacy operator development instruction, check out here:


Merged the TEE privacy operators into EGVM.

EGVM is a privacy enhancement EVM-compatible virtual machine.

Deployed the bridge between Eigen Token and Ether in Eigen Devnet.
