What is BNB Chain?

BNB Chain is a high-performance blockchain network built by Binance that is designed to support decentralized applications (dApps) and smart contracts. It uses a modified version of the Tendermint consensus algorithm called Binance-dBFT, which allows for faster transaction processing and greater scalability.

Currently, many decentralized finance (DeFi) applications are being built on Binance Smart Chain (BSC), including lending platforms, decentralized exchanges, stablecoins and token swap platforms. These projects are able to take advantage of the high performance and low transaction fees offered by the Binance Smart Chain, which makes it an attractive platform for developers to build their DeFi applications on.

Other applications that are being built on Binance Smart Chain are NFT marketplaces, Gaming, and prediction markets.
