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 Polygon?

Polygon, formerly Matic Network, is a blockchain platform designed to establish a multi-chain system compatible with Ethereum. It employs a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism similar to Ethereum for on-chain transactions, with its native token being MATIC. Functioning as a "layer two" or "sidechain" scaling solution alongside Ethereum, Polygon facilitates quicker transactions and lower fees. Its inception aimed to tackle Ethereum's major challenges, including high fees, subpar user experience, and limited transaction throughput, aspiring to create an "Ethereum's internet of blockchains" or a multi-chain ecosystem of Ethereum-compatible blockchains.
