BNB Chain’s opBNB Mainnet Goes Live for Infrastructure Providers
Binance recently announced the deployment of opBNB, a layer-2 scaling solution built on the OP Stack, and now its mainnet is live for infrastructure providers. The testnet took one and half months to complete, meaning that a public launch is now imminent.
What is OpBNB?
OpBNB is a scalable solution designed to support EVM compatible tokens such as BNB, powering gaming, decentralised exchanges (DEXs), and digital collectibles. It leverages Optimistic Rollups to provide low gas fees, network stability and security.
The On-chain transactions by the BNBChain community during the testnet surpassed 7 million with daily transaction range of 100-150K. A total of 435,972 unique wallet addresses connected to the network during testing phase which also saw more than 6k daily active users and 40 dApps deployed on the testnet.
BNB Price Outlook
At press time, BNB was trading around $233 – down 2% in 24 hours and nearly 5% in past week leading up to this announcement. The native cryptocurrency powering the BNB Chain ecosystem could see a surge when its much anticipated public launch takes place soon.
