opBNB Mainnet Launch
The core development team of BNB Chain has launched the public mainnet of opBNB, a Layer 2 network aiming to scale applications. The team noted that the public mainnet launch of opBNB was conducted after a comprehensive testing process to ensure the network’s reliability.
opBNB was developed using Optimism’s OP Stack software package. It is designed as a Layer 2 scaling solution to enable developers to deploy Ethereum-compatible decentralized applications (dApps) to an off-chain layer, and then secure them using the optimistic rollup technology by BNB Smart Chain (BSC). The goal is to increase transaction speed while reducing transaction fees associated with decentralized applications.

Arno Bauer, the senior solution architect of BNB Chain, stated in the launch announcement, “Scalability and security continue to be the top priorities for opBNB. Strict tests were successfully completed before making the mainnet public.”
