MetaPool Factory

The metapool factory allows for permissionless deployment of Curve metapools.

Source code for factory contracts may be viewed on Github.


The metapool factory has several core components:

  • The factory is the main contract used to deploy new metapools. It also acts a registry for finding the deployed pools and querying information about them.

  • Pools are deployed via a proxy contract. The implementation contract targetted by the proxy is determined according to the base pool. This is the same technique used to create pools in Uniswap V1.

  • Deposit contracts (“zaps”) are used for wrapping and unwrapping underlying assets when depositing into or withdrawing from pools.
