Gnosis Chain (Formally known as xDAI) is an Ethereum sidechain, boasting a very impressive 5-block time and cheap transaction fees.
xDAI is the native token of Gnosis chain.
Gnosis Chain uses a unique dual token model. The native token, xDAI, is a stablecoin pegged to native DAI 1:1, it is also used as the gas token to pay for transaction fees. Bets are placed in xDAI on Gnosis and xDAI is also used to pay transaction fees.

DEX (Decentralized Exchange)
You can swap an existing cryptocurrency to USDC using a DEX. You can do this directly on bookmaker.XYZ by using the funding tab.
The second, and probably the easiest option for most crypto-savvy users is to use a bridge. A bridge involves "bridging" an asset from one chain to another. Bridging from BSC <> Gnosis, Polygon <> Gnosis, Ethereum <> Gnosis.
We use Hop Protocol to facilitate bridging. Hop supports bridging from Ethereum, Arbitrum, Optimism, and Polygon.
