  • What is BNB Chain?
  • BNB Chain (BNB) is best described as a blockchain that runs in parallel to the Binance Chain. Unlike BNB Beacon Chain, BNB Chain boasts smart contract functionality and compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). The design goal here was to leave the high throughput of BNB Beacon Chain intact while introducing smart contracts into its ecosystem.

    In essence, both blockchains operate side-by-side. It’s worth noting that BNB Chain isn’t a so-called layer two or off-chain scalability solution. It’s an independent blockchain that could run even if BNB Beacon Chain went offline. That said, both chains bear a strong resemblance from a design standpoint.

    Because BNB Chain is EVM-compatible, it launched with support for the rich universe of Ethereum tools and DApps. In theory, this makes it easy for developers to port their projects over from Ethereum. For users, it means that applications like MetaMask can be easily configured to work with BNB Chain. Seriously – it’s just a matter of tweaking a couple of settings.

  • How was BNB Chain Launched?
  • On September 1st, 2020 BNB Chain went live on mainnet, activating the parallel blockchain to BNB Beacon Chain that enables the creation of smart contracts and the staking mechanism for BNB.

    The launch of BNB Chain, an Ethereum Virtual Machine-compatible blockchain that is ready to be tested and piloted by some of the top projects in the crypto industry, is expected to greatly increase the utility of both BNB Beacon Chain and BNB. With the introduction of the Proof of Staked Authority (PoSA) consensus mechanism, BNB Chain creates an ecosystem where validators, token holders, developers, and users all benefit from a rewarding blockchain that offers high performance and ample space for further innovations.

    The BNB Beacon Chain community launched BNB Chain in time for the DeFi (decentralized finance) revolution, as the public shows increased interest in alternative financial solutions powered by blockchain. With BNB Chain’s launch, DeFi projects and the bigger blockchain community can leverage the best that BNB Beacon Chain has to offer, fortified by smart contract support, cross-chain interoperability, and more advantages that BNB Chain brings. So the BNB Beacon Chain and BNB Chain community welcome all the dApp developers and projects to try on this new arena.
