Happy Holidays! This year was nothing short of monumental thanks to the incredible Gnosis Chain community. From the teams that coordinated a successful merge, the thousands of node runners securing Gnosis Chain, and to those tirelessly building, we are forever grateful to our dedicated community members. Next week we’ll highlight all the major accomplishments from the year and set our sights on whats to come in 2023. Here are the weekly updates as we approach the end of 2022!
Gnosis Chain Reaches 111,111 Validators
Without our diverse validator set Gnosis Chain would not be nearly as resilient. Our mission is to grow and nurture this important corner of the Gnosis Chain community.
ValidateGnosis.com & Gnosis Builders 👷
Gnosis Builders launched ValidateGnosis.com - a simple platform to learn how to run a validator regardless of technical know-how.
The Graph x GnosisDAO 🚀🚀🚀
GnosisDAO is advancing decentralization with a new grant for Indexers participating in the MIPs program! Earn GNO while supporting the decentralization of Gnosis Chain.
Indexers have been steadily testing Gnosis Chain to support it on The Graph Network as part of The Graph’s MIPs program. MIPs Indexers who started a Gnosis Chain validator will also be eligible for a grant of 1 GNO (or 32 mGNO) from GnosisDAO.
Subgraphs Arrive on Gnosis Chain!
Add a layer of robustness, security, and reliability, and make your Gnosis dApp unstoppable by decentralizing its data layer. If you're already using a subgraph on The Graph's hosted service, you can prepare to migrate it to The Graph's decentralized network—reach out to email@example.com to learn how to get started!
‘Tis The Season to Giveth 🎁
Giveth.io, a crypto-philanthropy platform, is running a holiday campaign with DeFi4good.
Azuro Becomes Most Active Protocol 🎉
Following the World Cup and thanks to the dedicated team at Azuro, the protocol became the most active on Gnosis Chain in terms of daily active addresses.
ATTN BUILDERS 🏗️
GnosisFaucet.com provides builders with 0.01 xDAI to deploy smart contracts on Gnosis Chain.
Gnosis Spotlight x Praise 😎
The Praise Reward System has been live on the Gnosis Chain Discord #validator channel for a few months now. Community members dish each other ‘Praise’ to express gratitude for help with setting up a validator or troubleshooting difficult technical issues. Praise is swapped for GNO ~ it’s a great way to participate in supporting the community.

🏘 DAO of the Week: PeaceDAO
PeaceDAO is a non-traditional NGO funding platform aimed at creating non-traditional funding models for global crisis zones. It was founded after the war in Ukraine broke out, and has deployed over $70000 in Ukraine.
By funding small grass-roots organizations, PeaceDAO has been able to pay for the evacuation of over 1,000 Ukrainians. During this crisis, PeaceDAO has provided funds for crucial supply runs and funded transportation costs aimed at mitigating civilian casualties and alleviating suffering.
At the moment PeaceDAO is transitioning toward a more global initiative. Stay tuned by checking into their discord under the channel “PeaceDAO”.
Azuro’s Bet of the Week on bookmaker.XYZ
The World Cup ended this past Sunday. Messi secured his spot in history, Argentina took home the cup, and France put on an incredible performance and gave us one of the most electric finals in World Cup history.
Rather than just highlighting one bet this week, we want to spotlight the final overall. We saw over 51K xDAI placed on the final alone, over 800+ bets. The biggest bet was 5532 xDAI placed on France.
Initially, we wanted to highlight our biggest achievements this week, but with such an explosive final for the World Cup and a record-breaking day for XYZ, we couldn’t leave it out. A huge thank you from the team to all those who are supporting XYZ, have a great festive period, and remember to tell somebody you love them <3
🙏 Thank you
Come say hello in the Gnosis Chain Discord. Join us for the next GnosisDAO Community Call on the 12th of January at 5PM CET, GnosisDAO Twitter Spaces.
See you on-chain,
Gnosis Chain Team
