The number of unique addresses in the Build and Build (BNB) Chain has surpassed the number in Ethereum, according to the statement made on December 22. It has not surpassed Bitcoin. According to Glassnode data, we know that there are over 1 billion unique addresses.


According to Etherscan data, there are currently over 217 million unique addresses on Ethereum. Then, for the BscScan, there are over 233 million unique addresses in BNB Chain. So, BNB Chain is a larger blockchain network than Ethereum according to this current indicator.

Blockchain developers attribute the network’s success in 2022 to initiatives launched this year. The BNB Sidechain protocol has allowed decentralized application (DApp) developers to run their DApps on separate shards in the network, reducing network density and transaction overhead.

In addition, a $10 million incentive program was launched for DApp developers. This has increased the number of DApps developed on BNB Chain and thus the number of interacting users.
