Welcome to Gnosis ChainπŸ¦‰
Formerly the xDai Chain, Gnosis Chain provides stability, scalability and an extendable beacon chain framework.
STAKE/GNO Swap is now available! Info here​
News Update
The token merger is now in effect, with the Gnosis Chain renaming underway. During the transition you may see the chain referred to as xDai Chain or Gnosis Chain. The underlying chain functionality is not impacted by this merger. STAKE staking will continue for ~6 months, however STAKE can be swapped now for GNO.

Gnosis Stable Chain

The Gnosis chain is a stable payments EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) blockchain designed for fast and inexpensive transactions. The chain uses a unique dual-token model; xDai is a stable token used for transactions, payments, and fees, and STAKE currently supports the underlying POSDAO Proof-of-Stake consensus. The PoS protection model will change once the Gnosis Beacon Chain is Implemented, and GNO will protect the chain.

Development on GC is easy and intuitive for Ethereum developers. GC is an EVM chain, and smart contracts can be written and deployed in exactly the same way simply by setting a different RPC endpoint.​
Any contract that works on the Ethereum mainnet can be redeployed to the Gnosis chain. Transaction costs are minimized, and all fees and transactions are paid with a single token, xDai. Many tools supporting Ethereum development are compatible with GC, including:
