The spirit of collaboration
GC Hardfork successful 20 April 🎉! Many thanks to node operators for your prep and vigilance ⚔️.
Following the HF 🌵Agave lending protocol is back with additional security measures in place and a reimbursement plan in motion.
DevConnect & EthAmsterdam are ⛓🕺🏼🌷🔥
GnosisDAO forum has several active proposals. Check them out!
New integrations & updates from Ankr, Mai Finance, dxDAO, XP Network, Ambire Wallet, Augmented Finance and more.
Node operators, validators, and clients & projects supporting the GC came together for a seamless chain update on 20 April, block #21,735,000 🎉. It’s an important upgrade to protect against further re-entrancy attacks related to bridged-token implementations. Projects and users can feel rock 🪨 solid with their applications, and the DeFi ecosystem is primed for growth now that the upgrade is complete.
🌵Agave protocol has already re-deployed and live on the GC with enhanced security in place! They drafted a fair and well-received reimbursement proposal related to the exploit, and the community voted to enact it. Check their Discord for details relevant to the reimbursement plan.
In addition to the hard fork, we’ve also updated bridge limits for several assets to prevent a mass liquidation event by an attacker should another exploit occur. The team continues to look into ways to prevent future incidents and welcomes any community feedback and ideas in the Gnosis forum.
🌷 All Things Amsterdam
Highlights from DevConnect include the GC hacker house and off-the-chain ⛓🕺🏼 party with Azuro, a Gnosis Beacon Chain spotlight talk featuring researcher Kirill Fedoseev, and a coding workshop with Tenderly and Blockscout. Enjoy a few pics and video from the proceedings!
Gnosis Beacon Chain Talk
Hello Wise Owls! This week a number of GIPs concluded their Snapshot votes with quorum reached. The Gnosis community voted to reimburse the Agave community after the recent exploit and vested COW tokens will be used to increase its liquidity with GIP-33. Please visit the forum for a full update.

A Collaborative Approach
As we see from the many projects working together on the Gnosis Chain (https://gnosischain.world for a big-picture view), the spirit of collaboration on GC is alive and well. This also holds true for the broader web3 community; as new networks find their footing and new projects launch, a rising tide 🌊 is lifting all boats⛵️ across the multi-chain ocean.
This collaborative spirit is on full display at recent conferences, where ideas are buzzing in a frenetic state of iteration and refinement. Themes emerge, builders build, and ideas in the “ether” quickly transform into code on the chain. An open-source mindset is the key ingredient 👨🏻🍳 as projects fork, improve, repeat in a continual cycle of innovation.
We look forward to next month at ActivateMiami🌴. Many networks will come together to share ideas and methods to securely interoperate with one another, working towards a decentralized, equitable future for all.
See you on-chain (and in 🌴) ,
Gnosis Chain Team
