BNB Chain Application Sidechain (BAS)

The BNB Chain Application Sidechain (BAS) is an infrastructure introduced to help developers and node operators build and run their own blockchain as their internal value system for a massive number of users while still maintaining an instant connection to BNB Chain through Celer cBridge. The new sidechain framework enables teams aiming to build high-volume Dapps that require lightning-fast transaction speed, ultra-low fees, and BNB’s industry-leading reliability to launch their own blockchains on the BNB Chain ecosystem. Any project developer will be able to deploy their own BAS with its own unique specifications and validator set. Here we will lay out for developers what it takes to launch a sidechain on BNB Chain, what it offers to the builder community, and present the pioneering use cases for sidechains in the BNB Chain ecosystem. Learn more about why you should use BAS!

Samy Karim, Business & Ecosystem Development, BNB Chain
Freddie Ng, Director of Operations, Nodereal
Michael Zhou, Core Developer, Celer Network
Stanley Wu, Co-Founder & CTO, Ankr

Future of Web3

Our invited thought leaders will present their vision for Web3 and what builders should focus on when creating dApps that scale. For those at the apex of blockchain development to build out the Web3 infrastructure that will power the next evolution of the Internet, it will require focused collaboration, collective trial, and error, and for innovators to be equipped with the technical tools to move humanity forward. We discuss this and more!
