Gnosis Core Devs released dates this week for the much anticipated merge aiming for December 5th, 2022. The Merge is a significant shift for Gnosis, replacing the legacy PoA consensus with the open and non-permissioned Beacon Chain consensus. This allows Gnosis to transition to a fully decentralized and permissionless PoS network, mirroring Ethereum.
The Merge also brings Gnosis one step closer to achieving its goal of being the most credibly neutral network available. We believe that this is only possible if the network is secured by a geographically diverse community of validators around the world. With over 100K validators currently securing the Gnosis Beacon Chain, Gnosis is poised to offer a resilient, unstoppable network to the public. We’ve simplified the process of running a validator ~ only 1 GNO is required and the process is user-friendly.
If you’re already running a node and participating in consensus or you’d like to learn how, join us in the Gnosis Chain Discord.

Recent Snapshot Activity ⚡️
GIP-71: Should GnosisDAO support hosted Blockscout explorer for Chiado testnet? ✅ Passed Quorum
Chiado testnet is an important new part of the Gnosis ecosystem as a developer testnet. A reliable explorer is required for developers to be productive on Gnosis. A Blockscout instance should be set up as soon as possible to support Chiado now and into the future. This instance will rely on a dedicated node supported by Gateway. Gateway is already working with Chiado and can quickly spin up and support the required node infrastructure and RPC endpoint.

Azuro’s Bet of the Week on bookmaker.XYZ
It’s time for the weekly check-in with Azuro Protocol and their first betting front-end, bookmaker.xyz.
It’s been another quiet week in football, but bettors are still finding plenty of opportunities. Our pick of the week takes us down under for Syndey FC - Celtic. A very savvy bettor took advantage of a great opportunity on Double Chance, betting 100 xDAI on 1x at odds of 2.4. The result was a 248 xDAI win. Firm handshakes to him.
🙏 Thank you
