About Blockchains

What is Gnosis Chain?

Gnosis Chain operates as an execution-layer Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) chain, utilizing the xDAI stablecoin for transactions and fee payments. Its security is ensured by the Gnosis Beacon Chain (GBC), which employs a Proof-of-Stake consensus mechanism akin to Cardano and Solana. Users stake GNO tokens to participate in transaction validation, earning additional GNO rewards for contributing to network security.

What is Ethereum?

Ethereum emerges as a decentralized, open-source blockchain platform empowering developers to craft and deploy smart contracts alongside dApps. Pioneering the smart contract concept, Ethereum enables self-executing agreements with terms directly encoded into its blockchain, eliminating the need for intermediaries. Additionally, Ethereum serves as a hub for the creation and exchange of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) and various digital assets. Its intrinsic cryptocurrency, Ether (ETH), facilitates network transactions and incentivizes miners to uphold network security. Ethereum's evolution to Ethereum 2.0 introduces a proof-of-stake (PoS) mechanism, aiming to enhance scalability and energy efficiency.
