Ether (Ethereum ↔ Matic)

This is a demo for ether, where all the process are running step-by-step.

  1. Deposit
  • depositEther()
  1. Transfer
  • transferERC20Tokens()
  1. Withdraw
  • startWithdraw()
  • withdraw()
  • processExits()


  • Visit getting started of Maticjs and Setup the requirements for the demo.
  • Once you are prepared then create a file demoEth.js. Add the shared code below in this file.
const Network = require("@maticnetwork/meta/network");
const Matic = require("@maticnetwork/maticjs").default;
const config = require("./config.json");
const network = new Network(, config.version);
const MaticNetwork = network.Matic;
const MainNetwork = network.Main;
const Ropsten_Erc20Address = config.Ropsten_Erc20Address;
const Matic_Erc20Address = config.Matic_Erc20Address;
const Ropsten_Erc721Address = config.Ropsten_Erc721Address;
const Matic_Erc721Address = config.Matic_Erc721Address;
const Ropsten_WEthAddress = config.Ropsten_WEthAddress;
const Matic_WEthAddress = config.Matic_WEthAddress;
const from = config.from; // from address
const matic = new Matic({
maticProvider: MaticNetwork.RPC,
parentProvider: MainNetwork.RPC,
rootChain: MainNetwork.Contracts.RootChain,
withdrawManager: MainNetwork.Contracts.WithdrawManagerProxy,

async function init() {
await matic.initialize();
await matic.setWallet(config.privateKey);
async function PromiseTimeout(delayms) {
return new Promise(function(resolve, reject) {

async function demoEth() {
await init();
const amount = "10000000000000000"; // amount in wei
console.log("*****Deposit ETH*****");
let token = Ropsten_WEthAddress;
await matic
.depositEther(amount, {
.then(async logs => {
console.log("Deposit on Ropsten:" + logs.transactionHash);
await PromiseTimeout(10000); //-10sec
console.log("*****Transfer ETH*****");
token = Matic_WEthAddress;
const recipient = "0xBDC6bb454C62E64f13FA2876F78cdAfA20089204"; // to address
await matic
.transferERC20Tokens(token, recipient, amount, {
.then(async logs => {
console.log("Transfer on Matic:" + logs.transactionHash);
await PromiseTimeout(10000);
console.log("*****Withdraw ETH*****");
.startWithdraw(token, amount, {
.then(async logs => {
console.log("Start Withdraw on Matic:" + logs.transactionHash);
console.log("Now waiting for 6 mins for the checkpoint");
const hash = logs.transactionHash;
await PromiseTimeout(360000); //-6 minutes
//Wait for 6 mins till the checkpoint is submitted, then run the confirm withdraw
.withdraw(hash, {
.then(async logs => {
console.log("Withdraw on Ropsten" + logs.transactionHash);
// action on Transaction success
// Withdraw process is completed, funds will be transfer to your account after challege period is over.
await PromiseTimeout(10000);
token = Ropsten_WEthAddress;
.processExits(token, {
.then(logs =>
"Process Exit on Ropsten:" + logs.transactionHash


Update the config.json file.

"version": "v3",
"privateKey": "<enter your private key>",
"from": "<enter the address>",

Expected Output

And then execute the file: node demoErc20.js

*****Deposit ETH*****
Deposit on Ropsten:0x72e5fa43414d3865931a8c34f4f24c5457547247c9594708610c5454488adb67
*****Transfer ETH*****
Transfer on Matic:0x45fb1ca99733089dc5933379351ee765af9712d667677203ab36d6f3c493447d
*****Withdraw ETH***
Start Withdraw on Matic: 0x89966df80c98633215b5c4af2f647f2d03bf7430cb2b8aa234ca692485b19c38
Now waiting for 6 mins for the checkpoint
Withdraw on Ropsten: 0x9be64cfd9b67d5898d02a0285f7dd247edc779042699033f4fd49fb9c32f6162
processExits can be gas expensive, sending in 2000000 gas but even this might not be enough
Process Exit on Ropsten: 0x55755abd423e40b3ddcee055d2b0d9870a6f31ad4942a0fe6f34c0d33983e2a

Note: This is just an Example to have a better understanding of the expected output.
