Getting started on xDAI
The first thing you need to do is add the network to your Metamask:
Note: Chain ID 0x64 is the hexadecimal equivalent of 100, which is the xDai Chain ID. MetaMask recently updated the ChainID to be a required field. When you update, you may need to reenter the Chain ID: 100, and it will be converted to a hexadecimal: 0x64
Once you have the network set up you will need native xDAI in your wallet to transact. Treat xDAI the way you would treat ETH on Ethereum. This is what pays the gas fees for your transactions.
