23 Oct. 2020

The DeFi world witnessed an interesting event with the launch of the Binance Chain DEX. Binance DEX is well known for its super-fast trading mechanism. But in the process of making this trading a huge success, Binance DEX suffered from inflexibility from a programmability point of view. Blockchain’s long pending challenge of scalability made it impossible for Binance Chain to handle the network traffic the systems would experience due to fast trading. A very good example of this would be about how Cryptokitties clogged the Ethereum network and forced it to halt.

With the invent of Binance Smart Chain though, this obstacle was removed. Binance Smart Chain was specifically designed to eliminate this issue with the implementation of the power of smart contracts to build highly performant dApps by enhancing scalability in blockchains.

What is Binance Smart Chain?

Binance Smart Chain is an independent blockchain that runs in tandem with the Binance Chain. Built on Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain’s compatibility with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) coupled with the powerful smart contract functionality makes it an extremely scalable blockchain with high throughput.

Typically, the Binance Chain and the Binance Smart Chain run in parallel but that doesnt mean that the Binance Smart Chain is only an off-chain blockchain tailor-made for the Binance Chain. Binance Smart Chain can very well run independently.

The Two C’s of Binance Smart Chain

The Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithm on the Binance Smart Chain allows the users to stake their BNB, the native currency of Binance Smart Chain, in order to become validators in the network. For every affirmation of a valid block, they earn fees from the network.

Cross-chain compatibility

To allow seamless asset transfer between blockchains, Binance Smart Chain offers cross chain compatibility where users can engage in data transfer between Binance Chain and Binance Smart Chain. For example exchanging tokens between the two using the Binance chain wallet.

Binance Smart Chain - Closing Thoughts

Several DEX protocols like UniSwap, SushiSwap, SashimiSwap have thronged the DeFi space with newer and easier token exchange mechanisms. One such protocol called the PancakeSwap is built on the Binance Smart Chain and has been gaining immense popularity. These protocols provide yield farming opportunities, allow seamless transfer of assets across users and many other facilities. Binance Smart Chain’s flexibility and smart contract functionality has helped the DeFi world grow and reach new heights.
