Binance Smart Chain (BSC) is one of the most popular & active EVM-compatible (Ethereum Virtual Machine) networks today.

BSC allows "users to build their decentralized apps and digital assets on one blockchain and take advantage of the fast trading to exchange on the other."

Secured by POS (proof-of-stake), the BSC network averages around 47 TPS (transactions per second), versus Ethereum MainNet's 15 TPS, allowing for faster, smoother, less-expensive transfer of assets, which is especially helpful for #DeFi projects.

It is home to applications like PancakeSwap, which has about 46,000 daily active users and $5 Billion in assets locked in its smart contract (TLV), according to DappRadar.

"We are excited to support the efforts of Binance to bring scalability & speed to the #DeFi space, and overall attract more users and developers to blockchain & Web3" says Dmitry Shklovsky, co-founder of QuikNode.io
