In this guide, we provide step by step guide on how you can add the Gnosis network to your MetaMask Wallet.

What is Gnosis?

Gnosis is an open-source, decentralized prediction platform built on the Ethereum blockchain. Users are able to create markets where they can speculate on any event or arbitrary outcome. Gnosis utilizes the Ethereum protocol to execute a secure and transparent ecosystem

The Gnosis protocol provides a very efficient forecasting platform for prediction markets. It uses three separate platforms to achieve its vision; Apollo, a prediction market platform where users can create their own tokens,  DutchX, a  decentralized exchange where users can trade and auction off their tokens, and Gnosis Safe, a cryptocurrency wallet and browser that interacts with Ethereum apps.

Briefly on MetaMask

MetaMask on the other hand is a popular crypto wallet that can get you connected to different blockchains and decentralized platforms.

Using MetaMask to gain entry to various blockchain networks, provides you with quick transactions and lower fees through its decentralized applications (dapps) and its decentralized finance (DeFi) platform.

To manage your assets, you need a wallet to interact with the blockchain. Here are the steps to add the Gnosis network to MetaMask Chrome Extension.
