Binance Smart Chain Highlights October Week 4

There have been some exciting developments in the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) ecosystem lately. To keep followers informed, Altcoin Buzz takes a look back at the most important BSC updates from last week.

During the fourth week of October, Binance Smart Chain (BSC) reached new heights in terms of daily active addresses. The BSC ecosystem also announced a proposal to adopt a fee-burning mechanism with key advantages. Let’s take look at these BSC updates in detail.

1 – Binance Smart Chain (BSC) Ecosystem Reach New Heights

During the week, Binance Smart Chain (BSC) reached a new all-time-high (ATH) of 1,624,489 daily active addresses.

This is the second ATH the blockchain is reaching in the past two weeks. It also joins several key achievements the BSC blockchain has been getting since its inception.

2 – BSC Propose Fee-burning Mechanism to Improve BNB Value

Based on reports, a new Binance Evolution Protocol, BEP-95 was proposed to the BSC ecosystem. The BEP-95 proposes burning a share of the gas fees and this share should increase using the blockchain’s governance system.

This development will mean that:

  • network validators get fewer gas fees
  • lower the supply of the BNB token and
  • increasing the demand and the value of the token.

In addition, the proposal stated that the burned fees should be 10% at first which will amount to about 681 BNB (equivalent to $334,000). However, the BEP-95 proposal needs to be approved before it can be implemented.

“The BEP-95 burn is solely dependent on the activity on the BSC network, and it will continue functioning (decreasing BNB supply), even after the scheduled BNB burns by reach the target supply of 100m BNB in circulation,” the report added.

3 – BSC Collaborates with MCDEX for Decentralized Derivatives

Following the recently acquired $1 billion growth fund, BSC will be investing in MCDEX, a decentralized derivatives exchange. The collaboration makes MCDEX the first decentralized perpetual swap on the BSC ecosystem.

BSC joins a number of organizations investing in MCDEX such as Delphi Digital, Multicoin Capital, and Alameda Research amongst others.

Alex Odagiu, the Investment Manager of BSC Accelerator Fund commented saying: “MCDEX has posted tremendous growth since its inception, under the $1B fund we’re looking to support such projects that are capable of scaling for the upcoming wave of mass adoption…”

4 – Binance Smart Chain Roll-out Updated BSC v1.1.3

During the week, the blockchain platform announced that its v1.1.3 has launched. The report pointed out that the new version is focused on ensuring improved performance by including “diff sync protocol”. This new addition also ensures nodes work better.

BSC said it could take weeks to fully take effect based on the number of nodes involved.
