About BNB Chain

In February 2022, Binance announced the merger of Binance Chain and Binance Smart Chain (BSC) into BNB Chain. The transition highlights BSC’s connection with the BNB token and BNB ecosystem. With a vision for what Binance calls “MetaFi” (“Meta” for metadata, and “Fi” for DeFi), the company hopes that BNB Chain can build the infrastructure that powers the world’s parallel virtual economy. BNB Chain aims to support large-scale applications, including GameFi, SocialFi and the Metaverse. 

Originally launched in September 2020, BSC served as a parallel blockchain to Binance Chain while enabling smart contract functionality and the staking mechanism of BNB. BSC offers users a cheaper, faster, blockchain network that’s compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine. Developers can worry less about transaction fees and focus more on innovating, while using all of the existing developer tooling they are familiar with in the Ethereum ecosystem.
