What is xDAI?

xDai tokens are transactional tokens on the Gnosis Chain and are also used to pay for the execution of smart contracts and gas fees. xDAI is a stablecoin, meaning its value is “pegged” to the US Dollar (1 xDAI ≈ 1 USD). Using xDAI to pay for gas fees on Gnosis Chain means transaction costs are stable and predictable, not to mention super cheap and fast!
