Episode 25 of Cointelegraph discuss The podcast explores the BNB chain ecosystem with Arno Bauer, Senior Blockchain Solutions Architect.

Bauer explained the rationale for creating the BNB chain and how the project intends to contribute to the Web3 ecosystem. Bauer spoke about the competition in the space, explaining that the BNB chain was not designed to “kill ethereum,” but to provide value to a unique set of users.

“I wouldn’t call myself an Ethereum killer because I don’t think anyone wants to kill Ethereum.”

Recently, BNB Chain launched a new layer-2 testnet called opBNB, which is based on the Optimism OP Stack and is expected to make BNB Chain more scalable. When asked if this would lead to fragmentation of the BNB Chain ecosystem, Bauer explained that users may be confused when making choices, and the best way to simplify the user experience is to let wallet providers and infrastructure builders Create seamless integrations that don’t require users to care about technical details.
