BNB Chain – Accelerating adoption of the digital asset and blockchain economy | Fundamentals ep.59
In this episode of the Fundamentals podcast, I’m joined by Arno Bauer, a Senior Solution Architect at BNB Chain. BNB Chain is a smart contract platform for decentralized applications and is currently the most widely used blockchain.
BNB Chain is made up of an ecosystem of blockchains, comprising of the BNB beacon chain for staking and governance, the BNB smart chain which is an EVM-compatible smart contract settlement layer, zkBNB, a layer 2 zero knowledge scaling solution for developers to build large-scale BSC-based apps, and finally BNB Greenfield for decentralized data storage.
In this episode with Arno, we discuss what the BNB Chain’s core value proposition is, what optimizations they have focused on, and how they are positioned within the market. Also, we cover how blockchains can be valued, how economic sustainability should be addressed, the most exciting things happening on the BNB Chain right now, who the core contributors behind the blockchain are, and more!
