Besides, the collaboration means OCEAN token holders can move their tokens between BSC and the Ethereum mainnet. Ocean Market users can also stake, swap, publish, and consume data assets in BSC.
The founder of Ocean Protocol, Bruce Pon, said, “Binance Smart Chain has been an excellent addition to the EVM ecosystem, considering the prohibitively high gas fees on Ethereum mainnet. Binance Smart Chain has created a top-tier platform for EVM smart contracts and for bridging across chains. We’re excited to deliver yet another milestone on our multi-chain strategy so that Ocean users may benefit from lower gas costs in Ocean Market and other emerging dApps and protocols that use Ocean technology.”
