⚔️ 🦉 Gnosis Chain Weekly · 12 August 2022
You might be asking yourself,
“What does CDBBWE stand for?”
I’m glad you asked. Take a seat, the answer will make your head spin. It stands for Chiado DappCon Berlin Blockchain Week ETHBerlin.
That’s right! The key to understanding everything is the month of September. Chiado is the testnet for the hotly anticipated Gnosis Chain/Gnosis Beacon Chain merge in September. DappCon takes place in Berlin and yes, you guessed it - in September! (The 12th to the 14th). Berlin Blockchain Week is September 12th through the 18th AND… ETHBerlin is from September 16th to the 18th. If there were ever a moment to sharpen your bi-location skills, well, this is it because all of these events are happening at nearly the same time.
September in Berlin ~ what sounds better than that? If you can’t make it in person, have no fear, the Gnosis Chain weekly newsletter will highlight all the best talks and events in the Gnosis ecosystem and beyond.
Merge and Chiado 🔀
The Chiado testnet is set to merge on Monday the 15th ahead of the official Gnosis Chain/GBC merge in September. All Chiado updates are listed below along with information about DappNode packages for the merge.

🏔 of the Week
A few weekly tidbits highlighting regular goings on.
🏘 DAO of the Week: Token Engineering Commons
Token Engineering Commons (TEC) is a social protocol, educating token engineers in tokenomic system design.
Token Engineering is an emerging discipline and TEC is building the foundations for education in the field of tokenomics design. The upcoming Token Engineering Fundamentals course is free and will launch at DevCon, in October 2022.
Gnosis Chain serves an important function to the TEC, as the community and contributors are paid in xDAI. The $TEC token is used for conviction voting and the treasury is spent on building the field of token engineering and funding public goods.
Azuro’s Bet of the Week on bookmaker.XYZ
Our bet of the week this week is a double celebration. Not only was it a great call from this player but it was also the biggest bet placed bookmaker.XYZ to date!
The player bet $1245 that there would be over 2.5 goals scored in the match between Olympique de Marseille & Stade de Reims and they received a pay-out of $2201. Well played!
