What is the BNB Chain?

BNB Chain (BNB), formerly called Binance Smart Chain (BSC), is a blockchain network built for running smart contract-based applications. BNB Chain is a fork of Ethereum and runs in parallel with Binance’s native Binance Chain (BC), which allows users to get the best of both worlds: the high transaction capacity of BC and the smart contract functionality of BNB.

Additionally, BNB Chain also implements the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which allows it to run Ethereum-based applications like MetaMask.

The DEX PancakeSwap runs on the BNB Chain, and users are able to trade WXEP (Wrapped XEP) there.
