BNB Chain is superior to Ethereum’s layer 1, but…

BNB Chain has long been considered an alternative to the Ethereum Layer 1 blockchain. While growth has not been without challenges, the blockchain powered by the Binance exchange has attracted significant market share.

Of the two blockchains, Ethereum has been around longer. But according to Token Terminal, BNB Chain has three times as many daily active users as Ethereum. This metric measures users interacting with the protocol over a given period of time.

While there are approximately 435,200 active users on Ethereum, BNB Chain has recorded a whopping 1.2 million. Even though Layer 1 Ethereum is less centralized than BNB, this growth means users want to choose a network with faster transaction speeds and lower fees.

However, BNB Chain’s advantages in the above aspects cannot bring its advantages in all other fields. According to data from blockchain financial aggregators, the volume of token transactions on Ethereum far exceeds that on BNB Chain.

As of April 6, BNB Chain had a transaction volume of $601.1 million, while Ethereum had over $11 billion. Such a large price difference shows that the number of tokens traded on the Ethereum network has exceeded that of the BNB Chain.
