About BNB (BNB)

As the Ethereum network witnessed a substantial increase in user activity and the adoption of decentralized applications (DApps), the need for scalability became a prominent issue for the first Layer-1 smart contract blockchain. To tackle this challenge, various Layer-2 scaling solutions were introduced to mitigate scalability concerns.

Among these scaling solutions, the Build 'N Build (BNB) Chain has emerged as a competitive player by offering asset-bridging capabilities across different chains. This has provided the BNB Chain with a distinct advantage over established platforms like Ethereum, enabling it to address the scalability limitations and cater to the growing demands of the DApp ecosystem.

What Is the BNB Chain?

The BNB Chain, established in February 2022, is a comprehensive modular system that combines the advancements of the Binance Chain (BC) and the Binance Smart Chain (BSC). The introduction of the BNB Smart Chain (BSC) was a response to certain limitations observed in the BC to complement its functionality.

While the BC was primarily designed to cater to decentralized exchanges (DEX) and focused on achieving high transaction throughput and delivering an enhanced user experience, it lacked smart contract functionality. Instead of incorporating additional functionality into the BC, which could have impacted network efficiency, the Binance community developed the BSC as a separate entity to address these concerns and provide the desired smart contract functionality.

After the merger of both chains, the BC assumed the role of a dedicated layer for governance, encompassing voting and staking functionalities. On the other hand, the BSC was specifically designed to execute Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) consensus and support Ethereum-compatible applications, including MetaMask. This strategic implementation allows for seamless integration with smart contracts on the BSC

The BNB Team

The BNB team is led by Changpeng Zhao "CZ," the founder of Binance, who introduced the BNB token and established the BNB Chain in 2017. Another key member of the team is He Yi, the co-founder and chief marketing officer. Before joining Binance, Yi served as Vice President at Yixia Technology, a leading mobile video tech company.

BNB: The utility token of the BNB Chain

BNB, the native utility token of the BNB Chain, plays a pivotal role within the BSC ecosystem. As the governance token, BNB enables holders to actively participate in shaping the development and future of the ecosystem. Additionally, BNB is essential for developers seeking to participate in token sales conducted on the Binance Launchpad.

BNB tokenomics

The BNB token operates under specific tokenomics. It has a maximum capped supply of 200,000,000 tokens, and a deflationary burning mechanism is in place to gradually reduce the supply to 100,000,000 coins. Currently, the total supply of BNB is 157,900,174, with 157,886,280 tokens currently in circulation.

BNB use cases

In recent years, the use cases of BNB have expanded significantly, offering a range of functionalities. These include participating in governance proposals through voting, staking to contribute to the network's security, utilizing BNB as collateral for loans on decentralized finance (DeFi) platforms, and covering transaction fees within the Binance ecosystem. Furthermore, BNB is accepted as a form of payment for credit card transactions at select merchants who support it.

BNB distribution

BNB was introduced in July 2017, initially distributing 200,000,000 coins according to the following allocation:

  • Fifty percent of the supply was issued through an initial coin offering (ICO) held in 2017.
  • Forty percent of the supply was reserved for the foundation team.
  • Ten percent of the supply was distributed to angel investors.

Expanding the utility of the BNB Chain

The BNB community is dedicated to enhancing the BNB Chain by integrating side chains and implementing zk-rollups. These advancements aim to provide customized blockchain solutions and improve scalability, enabling efficient and high-performance operations. With these developments, there is optimism for a resurgence in interest and value for BNB, potentially approaching or surpassing its previous peak of $690.

BNB FAQ

Is the Binance Smart Chain dependent on the Binance Chain?

No, the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) operates independently as a separate blockchain and is not dependent on the Binance Chain (BC). While they exist within the Binance ecosystem, the BSC is designed to maintain its technical and business capabilities, ensuring its continued operation even if the BC ceases its activities.

Is BNB part of Binance?

While Binance initially created BNB, it has evolved into more than just a part of the Binance platform. The BNB Chain has become an independent decentralized network with its own ecosystem and use cases, extending beyond its association with the Binance cryptocurrency exchange.
