opBNB Launches on BNB Chain’s Layer 2 Network

What is a Layer 2?

A layer 2 refers to any off-chain network, system, or technology built on top of a base, or layer 1, blockchain. The OP Stack is the set of software that powers Optimism, an Ethereum layer 2 blockchain, which developers can use to create their own networks.

Thorough Testing and Impressive Performance

During the testing phase, developers conducted an extensive examination of opBNB, including:

  • Testing more than 35 million transactions.
  • Deploying approximately 150 applications on opBNB.
  • Achieving a maximum processing capacity of 4,000 transactions per second (TPS), a significant improvement compared to Ethereum’s current 17 TPS.

Arno Bauer, Senior Architect at BNB Chain, emphasized, “Scalability and security are the top priorities of opBNB.” He added, “Before opening the mainnet to the public, stringent criteria had to be met. This included High Availability (HA), 4K Transactions Per Second (TPS), rigorous stress testing, reduced gas costs under 0.2 gwei, fast finality under 1 second, and enhanced security with multiple external audits.”

Joining the Competitive Blockchain Landscape

opBNB now joins the increasingly competitive and crowded ranks of over 50 other blockchains, promising innovative solutions for the future.

Integration and Incentives

Projects interested in integrating with opBNB can make use of BNB Chain’s extensive developer tutorial and dedicated technical support. To encourage network activity, BNB Chain has announced plans to roll out airdrop incentives alongside fifteen ecosystem projects. These incentives aim to attract initial users and funds to the upstart network, setting the stage for a vibrant ecosystem.
