BNB Chain RPC

BNB Chain is an EVM compatible chain designed to work alongside Binance Chain.

As well as EVM compatibility, BNB Chain adds smart contract functionality to the chain. The dual-chain architecture alongside Binance Chain enables the sending and receiving of BNB and BEP2 tokens cross-chain.

EVM-compatibility permits support for Ethereum tools and DApps.
