The xDai Chain has been one of crypto's breakout success stories. Its prominent use at mainstream Eth events and support from the crypto community have made some of the biggest names in Ethereum stand up, listen, and experience the magic of xDai for themselves.
Below are some mentions xDai has received from influencers in the community:
Dr Gavid Wood, co-founder of Ethereum
xDAI is a magical first experience for people. Ric showed it to me and I've used it multiple times with those unfamiliar with crypto. It leads to them wanting to learn more very quickly.
Anthony "Pomp" Pompliano, Co-founder & Partner at Morgan Creek Digital
Burner Wallet (website, explainer article) is an "insta-wallet" that's very easy to use: just load it up on your desktop or phone, and there you have it. It was used successfully at EthDenver to sell food from food trucks, and generally many people appreciate its convenience. Its main weaknesses are lower security and that one of its features, support for xDAI, is dependent on a permissioned chain.
Vitalik Buterin, co-founder of Ethereum
At EthDenver, the user experience was really, really smooth.... (xDai and the Burner Wallet) enables ease of use & easy onboarding for people.
Joseph Lubin, co-founder of Ethereum
