Today we are thrilled to announce the launch of opBNB Mainnet. This momentous event brings us closer to our mission of bringing the next one billion users to Web3. Users can join the opBNB mainnet here.
opBNB, an Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM)-compatible Layer 2 chain based on Optimism OP Stack, promises to revolutionize the blockchain industry by offering cheaper gas fees and democratizing access to blockchain technology.
The journey towards opBNB Mainnet began on June 19, 2023, with the launch of our Testnet. Over the last few months, our community and developers diligently tested the network, resulting in remarkable achievements:
The logos are presented here to showcase opBNB's ecosystem, and they do not serve as investment instructions for BNB Chain.
Our Testnet also showcased unparalleled processing performance:
Our focus on scalability and security has led to defining key milestones before opening the Mainnet, and opBNB has met all of the require Mainnet genesis criteria:
Super Cheap Gas Cost
Security is our top priority:
With all that has been achieved during and after the testnet, we are also excited to share that over 150 projects are committed to integrating or building on opBNB, with some protocols already live!
While we have taken extensive security measures and undergone multiple audits, we acknowledge that no system is entirely free of bugs. We rely on active community participation to enhance security continually.
Our developer community is at the heart of BNB Chain and opBNB. To support our developer community, we've partnered with leading infrastructure and tooling providers, enhancing the developer experience on the opBNB network.
Furthermore, we’ve fostered this community through initiatives like the Hackvolution hackathon, which saw the submission of 500+ projects on the opBNB Testnet. Additionally, we conducted 8 AMAs and Twitter spaces with opBNB's core team and contributors to facilitate development.
Following the launch of the opBNB Mainnet, our primary focus lies in fortifying the network's resilience and decentralization through a series of pivotal measures:
Proof Enhancement: Ensuring the security and integrity of off-chain transactions is paramount. We are actively researching various approaches within the OP Stack framework to enhance the efficiency of our fraud-proof system. This includes improving the off-chain infrastructure's efficiency, optimizing challenge timing windows, and exploring alternative solutions such as zk-proofs.
Account Abstraction: To enhance network flexibility and reduce complexity, we are working on implementing account abstraction, a feature that streamlines interactions within the network.
Data Availability with BNB Greenfield: We are committed to seamless integration with the BNB Greenfield ecosystem. This integration ensures the availability of data between both networks, facilitating cross-platform interactions and expanding our ecosystem.
Interoperability with BNB Greenfield: Strengthening the interoperability between opBNB and the BNB Greenfield network is a priority. This fosters a collaborative environment for developers, encouraging innovation and cross-network utility.
Decentralized Sequencer: To bolster fairness and security in block production, we are actively developing a decentralized sequencer mechanism. This approach minimizes the risk of centralization and augments network resilience.
Our commitment to these objectives aims to build a robust, decentralized, and high-performance blockchain network with opBNB. We invite you to join us on this exciting journey as we unlock a world of possibilities and work towards bringing the next one billion users to Web3.
