Read about the incredible xDai journey so far: how xDai was born from of a causal conversation at ETHBerlin, its adoption and usage as a peer-to-peer payment focused network with Burner Wallet, and most exciting of allm future plans with DPoS and multi-chain staking.
xDai Stable Chain: Introducing the $DPOS Token and Multichain Staking
The new upgrade of xDai to POSDAO staking based consensus comes with new ideas and innovations. With the introduction of the two token model, we will have xDai and a new staking token: $DPOS. With $DPOS, users will be able to stake and delegate on xDai Stable Chain AND all other xStableChains launched. Read more about $DPOS, Multichain Staking, Delegating, Pools and the building blocks of stablechains .
Reliable Randomness: Bringing on-chain entropy to the xDai Stable Chain
Randomness is vital to a blockchain, and difficult to achieve within the protocol. POSDAO on the xDai Stable Chain will offer the first Ethereum implementation of Proof of Stake, and on-chain randomness is a key feature of this implementation. Check out the post below to see what strategies we use to generate reliable randomness in the new POSDAO algorithm, and why on-chain randomness is important as a key feature in POSDAO and xDai.
