Gnosis Chain Logo


The first-ever USD stable blockchain

Use Cases

Ethereum compatible smart-contract stable coin


Gnosis Chain, formerly known as xDai, was originally a proof-of-authority chain that used an authority round (AuRa) consensus mechanism, supported by Parity and Nethermind. Nowadays, it has evolved into a permissionless delegated proof-of-stake-based consensus with POSDAO.

The xDai network is designed for everyday crypto payments and transactions. Gas fees are extremely low, and payments are very fast. Its value remains stable at ~ $1 US Dollar per xDai.

We highly recommend Gnosis Chain (xDai) and have a lot of positive experience with this network.
