About Blockchains

What is BNB Chain?


The BNB Chain, formerly known as Binance Smart Chain (BSC), is a blockchain platform introduced by the cryptocurrency exchange Binance. Its native token, BNB, serves various roles within the ecosystem. BNB acts as the network's transaction fuel, similar to gas on Ethereum, and grants users governance rights to participate in on-chain decision-making. In September 2020, Binance introduced the BNB Smart Chain alongside the BNB Beacon Chain, extending BNB's functionality. The BNB Smart Chain supports smart contracts and staking, offering an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)-compatible infrastructure. This dual-chain design aims to provide a high-performance, cost-effective environment for the blockchain community, ensuring compatibility with existing Ethereum tools and dApps while improving scalability and user experience.

What is Bitcoin?


Bitcoin stands as a leading cryptocurrency and payment network, utilizing peer-to-peer technology to operate without central authorities. It embraces global participation as an open-source platform. A notable advancement in Bitcoin is the introduction of ordinals and inscriptions. Launched in January 2023, the Bitcoin ordinals protocol enables the embedding of digital content like art, text, or video directly onto the Bitcoin blockchain. This innovation allows for the creation of exclusive digital collectibles, giving each satoshi a unique identity and purpose, broadening Bitcoin's utility beyond its role as a store of value.
