BNB Chain Makes Significant Scaling Breakthrough: Introducing zkBNB
The launch of zkBNB by BNB Chain has disproved these claims. Developers’ capacity to create complex BNB Smart Chain-based apps with guaranteed security and transaction speed, quicker finality, and much lower transaction costs will be dramatically impacted by the invention.
The official release of the zkBNB Testnet on September 2nd reiterates the unwavering commitment to provide the most advanced and secure blockchain infrastructure for Web3 dApps. With the code being made open-source, developers can extend the functionality of zkbnb to their specific use cases.

BNB Chain Introduced Helio Protocol
Helio Protocol is an open-source liquidity protocol for borrowing and earning yield on HAY – a new BNB backed, over-collateralized and an entirely new asset class in crypto called “destablecoins”.
Destablecoin is a new type of asset class within the crypto space that seeks to label a more accurate term in the current stablecoin landscape. The prefix “de-” stands for decentralized – it does not signify price volatility the way assets such as BTC experience.
HAY is a non-custodial and over-collateralized destablecoin, that is backed by liquid staked BNB. To borrow or obtain HAY, users will have to provide BNB in the form of collateral by interacting with Helio’s protocols.
