Gnosis Safe on xDai

Connect a Wallet

There are several options including MetaMask, hardware wallets, and WalletConnect. WalletConnect allows you to use a 3rd party wallet on your mobile device.

1) Go to the Safe application on xDai at https://xdai.gnosis-safe.io/app/#/welcome. Click Connect.

2) Chose your wallet.

We recommend MetaMask.

Connecting with MetaMask

1) Select the MetaMask option in the connect wallet menu. Check that the correct MetaMask account is active and connected to the xDai Network. Need to add xDai to your MetaMask?

Connecting with WalletConnect

Current WalletConnect functionality is limited to wallets that support xDai. You can use MetaMask Mobile with wallet connect if you have setup the xDai custom RPC.

Note: Some features may not work as expected on xDai, currently we recommend using MetaMask browser extension.

If you choose to use WalletConnect, select the WalletConnect option in the connect wallet menu. Scan the QR code with your application and accept the message to connect in your mobile wallet.

Create A New Safe

1) Press Create new Safe.

2) Name the safe. This will be stored locally. Press Start to continue.

3) Add additional owners if wanted. For each additional owner:

  1. Click Add another owner.

  2. Give Owner a Name.

  3. Enter Owner Address.

  4. Select how many owners will be required to confirm a transaction.

  5. Press Review.

4) Confirm the transaction. You will need a very small amount of xDai to confirm the tx.

5) During deployment you can check safe creation on BlockScout. Click the link to view progress.
