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 Polygon?

Polygon, formerly Matic Network, is a blockchain platform designed to establish a multi-chain system compatible with Ethereum. It employs a proof-of-stake consensus mechanism similar to Ethereum for on-chain transactions, with its native token being MATIC. Functioning as a "layer two" or "sidechain" scaling solution alongside Ethereum, Polygon facilitates quicker transactions and lower fees. Its inception aimed to tackle Ethereum's major challenges, including high fees, subpar user experience, and limited transaction throughput, aspiring to create an "Ethereum's internet of blockchains" or a multi-chain ecosystem of Ethereum-compatible blockchains.
