Biconomy Supports xDai Chain

May 15, 2020 · 3 min read

Yes, you heard it right ;)

As per our blockchain agnostic architecture, we have been working hard to provide support on more and more Blockchains. After supporting Ethereum and Matic chain, now we have successfully supported the xDai Stable Chain.

If you have a Dapp on xDai Chain and looking for meta-transaction services to improve your UX, your search has ended.

A Quick intro about xDai chain

The xDai chain is an EVM sidechain created by POA Network in partnership with MakerDAO. Its underlying architecture is the same as Ethereum 1.0, which means that smart contracts can be written and deployed in exactly the same way as we do on Ethereum.

The reasons to use xDai Stable Chain are

  • Fast transactions

Smart Contract deployment on xDai Testnet

There is no current xDai Testnet for Smart contract deployment and testing. However, the POA Sokol network is available for the testing and deployment of the smart contract.

POA Sokol: A test network requiring POA Sokol token.

Go to Faucet to get some POA test tokens

Smart Contract deployment on xDai Mainnet

After functionality is tested and confirmed, you will also need a small amount of xDai to deploy a contract.

After smart contract deployment, let's move on to Biconomy Integration in your Dapp to enable a seamless and Gasless UX.

Step 1: Register / Login to Biconomy Dashboard.

Step 2: Verify your account.

Step 3: Click on “Register” and create your Dapp

Step 4: Select “xDai Mainnet” while selecting the network.

Your Dapp is created on the Dashboard and now you just have to register your smart contracts, and register methods on which you want to enable meta-transaction.

Step 5: Integrate our SDK, and relay your transactions via Biconomy Relayers.
