Why It Matters: Binance Smart Chain-backed PanCakeSwap has helped bring the number of transactions Binance’s smart-contract blockchain to five times those on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain, CoinDesk reported.
“New retail entrants are seemingly coming in straight to BSC/PancakeSwap through TrustWallet due to low fees,” according to Avi Sanyal, head of trading at BlockTower Capital, reported CoinDesk.
Polygon (MATIC) too has witnessed ten a 10x rise in the number of transactions since the beginning of the year according to Alex Svanevik, CEO of Nansen, a blockchain data firm, as per a separate report.
Both CAKE And MATIC have benefitted due to high congestion and resulting steep transaction costs on Ethereum (ETH) — referred to as "Gas."
ETH traded 2.11% higher at $2,689.57 at press time, a level near its all-time high too. Binance ecosystem's native token BNB traded 1.1% higher at $569.65.
