Proposal for BNB Chain Fusion
BNB Beacon Chain is part of the genesis of the BNB ecosystem, setting the foundational infrastructure for the innovations and functionalities that followed within the BNB Ecosystem space. However, the technological landscape has been transformed with the emergence and rapid evolution of the BNB Smart Chain and advanced Layer 2 solutions such as OpBNB based on Op Stack. BSC offers high throughput, speed, and programmability that far outpace the capabilities of the BNB Beacon Chain. Maintaining the BNB Beacon Chain while focusing on BNB Ecosystem growth introduces strategic, technical, and operational complexities that divert the BNB community’s essential resources and focus. As part of BNB Beacon Chain Fusion, two important proposals are proposed:
A Native Staking module (BEP-294: BSC Native Staking after BC Fusion by Pythonberg1997 · Pull Request #294 · bnb-chain/BEPs · GitHub) has been proposed to incorporate the staking logic into the BSC chain and move this responsibility off the BNB Beacon Chain.
A Native Governance module (BEP-297: BSC Native Governance Module by SolidityGo · Pull Request #297 · bnb-chain/BEPs · GitHub) on BSC has also been proposed to replace the existing governance logic on the BNB Beacon Chain.
Both BEPs aims to speed up the Beacon Chain Fusion.
