Number of Binance Chain daily transactions bypassed Ethereum

by in Blockchain News


Binance Chain surpassed Ethereum in terms of user activity. The CEO of the Binance exchange Changpeng Zhao wrote about this on Twitter and admitted that soon the number of transactions on the network would also be higher than on Ethereum.

However, he added that he does not oppose ETH. It supports the concept of the successful development of both blockchains.

According to the service, on average, the Binance Chain network processes 1.607 million transactions per day. The number of Ethereum transactions is now around 1.21 million.

According to analysts, the surge in transaction activity is directly related to the rise in the value of Binance Coin (BNB), the underlying asset of Binance Chain.
