BNB Chain’s opBNB Mainnet
BNB Chain has announced that its layer 2 scaling platform opBNB mainnet is now live for infrastructure providers, putting the EVM-compatible solution on the path to a public launch. This solution was built using the OP Stack and leverages Optimistic Rollups to allow for low gas fees, network stability and security with an importance to optimal performance of the BNB Chain ecosystem across gaming, decentralized exchanges (DEXs) and digital collectibles. The testnet for this layer-2 scaling solution took one and a half months before it was released by Binance on June 19th with a promotion named „Odyssey“. One week later, they announced that its deployment would be in August when it would have an expected significant milestone in revamping its position in decentralised finance ecosystems.
On-chain transactions by BNBChain community surpassed 7 million during this testing period as daily transaction range went up to 100-150K. A total of 435,972 unique wallet addresses connected to this network with more than 6k daily active users and 40 dApps deployed on it during this one and a half month long testing period.
The native cryptocurrency powering this whole ecosystem – BNB – was trading around $233 at press time which showed a dip of 2% in past 24 hours but nearly 5% dip in past week.
