Binance.com announced their list of the best projects in the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) ecosystem during the “Build to the Moon” event. It was held on Wednesday, July 14th.

Binance Recognizes the Best Six Performers
The BSC network has seen tremendous growth since its inception in September 2020, becoming one of the best decentralized community-driven blockchains to shape the future of finance.
Binance, to encourage projects building on the fast-rising network, created the recognition awards for projects in the ecosystem. In essence, the awards recognize the top performers (projects) in the BSC space.
Projects launched after the mainnet launch of the BSC network on 1st September 2020 were nominated. In addition, Binance set some criteria for the nominees, such as stability, their active user base, influence in the market, adoption, and the value of attracted investments. Nominees and recognized projects are community-driven and are in no way funded by Binance.

Binance awarded six protocols based on different categories and criteria. Here are the award winners:
