Staking on GC
Public staking on xDai
The following instructions are for validators and delegators of the Gnosis Chain with POSDAO. Following the merge these methods will no longer be applicable.
  • Instructions use the "xDai chain" terminology. All processes are the same for the Gnosis Chain.
  • Staking will stop when the merge occurs with the Gnosis Beacon Chain. Until that time, it is still possible to delegate or validate on the GC.
  • Staking Stats are available here (Scroll down to find Staking on xDai stats)​
