Set the default implementation


Users deploying their Universal Profiles using the guides that utilize lsp-factory or the Browser Extension can skip this guide, as this contract is already deployed and set for their profiles.

This guide will teach you how to deploy and set the default implementation of the Universal Receiver Delegate (URD) used by the Universal Profile. This contract will register the addresses of the received assets and vaults and will remove them on a balance equal to 0. This contract requires the SETDATA Permission to interact with the profile through the KeyManager.

UniversalReceiverDelegate setting data keys on profile

Deploy the default Universal Receiver Delegate contract

Deploying the Universal Receiver Delegate of the Universal Profile
import Web3 from 'web3';
import LSP1UniversalReceiverDelegateUP from '@lukso/lsp-smart-contracts/artifacts/LSP1UniversalReceiverDelegateUP.json';

const web3 = new Web3('');

const PRIVATE_KEY = '0x...'; // your EOA private key
const myEOA = web3.eth.accounts.wallet.add(PRIVATE_KEY);

// create an instance
let myURD = new web3.eth.Contract(LSP1UniversalReceiverDelegateUP.abi);

// deploy the URD contract
await myURD
data: LSP1UniversalReceiverDelegateUP.bytecode
from: myEOA.address,
gas: 5_000_000,
gasPrice: '1000000000',

Set the address of the URD in the storage

After deploying the contract, we need to set its address under the LSP1-UniversalReceiverDelegate Data Key and grant it the SETDATA permission.

Setting address of the URD in the storage
import Web3 from 'web3';
import constants from "@lukso/lsp-smart-contracts/constants.js";
import UniversalProfile from '@lukso/lsp-smart-contracts/artifacts/UniversalProfile.json';
import LSP6KeyManager from '@lukso/lsp-smart-contracts/artifacts/LSP6KeyManager.json';

const web3 = new Web3('');

const myEOA = web3.eth.accounts.wallet.add(PRIVATE_KEY);

const URD_DATA_KEY = constants.ERC725YKeys.LSP0.LSP1UniversalReceiverDelegate;
const myURDAddress = "0x.." // address of the URD Deployed in Step 1
const myUniversalProfileAddress = "0x.." // address of the UP

// create an instance of the UP
const myUP = new web3.eth.Contract(UniversalProfile.abi, myUniversalProfileAddress);

const addressPermissionsOldArrayLengthHex = await myUP.methods[

const addressPermissionsNewArrayLength =
web3.utils.hexToNumber(addressPermissionsOldArrayLengthHex) + 1;

const addressPermissionsNewArrayLengthHex = web3.utils.padLeft(

// bytes16 index `addressPermissionsOldArrayLengthHex` will serve as index
const URDIndexInArrayHex = addressPermissionsOldArrayLengthHex.substring(34,66);

// encode setData Payload on the Vault
const setDataPayload = await myUP.methods["setData(bytes32[],bytes[])"](
constants.ERC725YKeys.LSP6["AddressPermissions[]"].index +
constants.ERC725YKeys.LSP6["AddressPermissions:Permissions"] +

// getting the Key Manager address from UP
const myKeyManagerAddress = await myUP.methods.owner().call();

// create an instance of the KeyManager
let myKM = new web3.eth.Contract(LSP6KeyManager.abi, myKeyManagerAddress);

// execute the executePayload on the KM
await myKM.methods.execute(executePayload).send({
