We are at the forefront of PoS blockchain research. We work with carefully selected networks and help them launch and operate seamlessly. Our technical input has been vital in adding value to blockchains such as Solana, Cosmos and Ethereum.
The Chorus One infrastructure and surrounding processes are highly specialized to guarantee reliable and fault tolerant operation of our nodes as well as safekeeping of associated cryptographic key material.
Both institutional and retail investors trust our staking services. Our engineers work around the clock to ensure your stake is safe. Moreover, we safeguard all investments with our delegator protection pool of $250k, refreshed each quarter.
We keep our community updated through regular posts, engaging podcast episodes, and in-depth research articles. We provide 24x7 support to our delegators via Telegram, email and chat.
We are excited to announce that we have onboarded Gnosis Chain as validators. Gnosis is one of the first Ethereum sidechains in existence and has kept close to its values from inception. Gnosis Chain is EVM-based and secured by over 100k validators around the world. It hosts a very diverse validator set and it is propped up by the community governance of GnosisDAO to ensure it remains credibly neutral at a much lower price point than Ethereum mainnet. It powers an ecosystem of DApps including POAP (Proof of Attendance Protocol, the original NFT protocol), Dark Forest (a fully decentralized strategy game, built with zkSNARK technology), Giveth (public goods, peer-to-peer direct funding platform), and much more.
Gnosis has a long history of working alongside Ethereum, although Gnosis Chain is technically a new blockchain. It first specialized in prediction markets, decentralized exchanges, and wallet solutions, and joined expertise with xDAI Chain in 2021 to provide fast and inexpensive transactions. This newer chain has some great features including a block time of 5 seconds (making it ideal for everyday payments), a native stablecoin, a low-fee system (gas fees cost .01 xDAI per 500 transactions), Ethereum compatibility/interoperability, and much more. Gnosis Chain already successfully went through its Merge upgrade and on December 08, 2021, became a full Proof-of-Stake network.
Gnosis Chain runs on a dual-token framework: xDAI, which is a wrapped version of MakerDAO’s algorithmic stablecoin DAI, is the payment coin of the network. By using a stablecoin for payments and calculating gas in xDAI, Gnosis Chain can keep fees extremely low. On the other side, GNO is the staking and governance token for GnosisDAO, allowing validators and delegators to secure the chain. Currently, there are 342k GNO staked for on-chain voting, making Gnosis Chain the third most decentralized blockchain after Bitcoin and Ethereum. Chorus One is thrilled to support Gnosis Chain in our quest to expand the PoS economy.
