Gnosis has an impressive track record of pioneering experimentation and the development of decentralized infrastructure for the Ethereum ecosystem. Since our inception in 2015, we’ve been dedicated to building prediction markets that provide global access to accurate information. Today, operating as a DAO, we transparently use the products we create to guide decisions regarding the development, support, and governance of our ecosystem.
Our portfolio includes a range of products and protocols, including Safe, Cow Protocol, Conditional Tokens, Gnosis Auction, Zodiac, Agnostic Relay, and MEV Blocker. Each of these has been incubated by Gnosis.
In November 2021, our vibrant ecosystems merged as the xDai and GnosisDAO communities voted to create Gnosis Chain. This community-owned network is EVM-compatible and prioritizes credible neutrality. It is secured by over 125,000 validators worldwide and ensures a secure and resilient infrastructure. Gnosis Chain offers users and developers the advantages of familiar tooling and trust-minimized bridges to the Ethereum mainnet. By employing the same execution and consensus layer clients as Ethereum, it ensures seamless integration with all future EIPs.
Our most recent achievement is the launch of Gnosis Pay, the first decentralized payment network that allows web3 developers to integrate with traditional payment schemes, including Visa. This innovative payment network empowers users to spend their digital assets anywhere Visa is accepted, with the same speed and seamlessness they expect from a traditional debit card.
Join us in embracing the future of decentralized technology with Gnosis Chain, where we continue to shape the next generation of web3 advancements. Together, we are building a decentralized ecosystem that empowers users and fosters global innovation.
