Some of the more notable roadmap developments include the introduction of mainnet BNB app sidechains with META Apes and Metaverse World; almost doubling the number of decentralized validators to 41 via the BEP-131 proposal; and successively increasing BNB Smart Channel’s bulk gas capacity to 200 million in the third quarter to improve cost and speed efficiency, among others.

BNB Foundation Executive Director Uri Ferruccio shared his assessment of how the implementation of the roadmap can support the growth of the BNB chain ecosystem, stating:

“These technological advancements are significant because they will bring substantial change to both the developer community and end users. […] The focus will be on innovation, sustainability, strengthening BNB Chain’s governance mechanism and massive investment in security.
