Binance has unveiled its BNB Greenfield whitepaper, outlining the ambitious plans of launching a new blockchain platform. Designed to power decentralized applications and smart contracts.

The whitepaper, released today indicates that the world’s leading cryptocurrency exchange is entering the world of decentralized finance (DeFi). Here are some key points:

  • This public blockchain has been designed to support high-performance trading and decentralized applications, providing a secure, reliable platform for developers and users alike.
  • The whitepaper states that BNB Greenfield will provide open access to all crypto assets regardless of their origin or the underlying technology.
  • This will make it easier for developers to create and deploy decentralized applications. As well as enable users to access a wide range of assets via one platform.
  • BNB Greenfield will also support smart contracts, giving developers the ability to easily create and deploy them on the blockchain.

BNB Greenfield will be powered by a blockchain protocol based on Binance Chain. Allowing for the development of decentralized applications (dApps) and smart contracts.

This new platform is expected to provide developers with greater flexibility, scalability, and interoperability than existing platforms.

The whitepaper outlines two distinct layers BNB Greenfield Core and BNB Greenfield Services. The core layer will be responsible for providing the underlying infrastructure. While the services layer will provide various applications, components, and tools for developers to utilize in building their dApps.

The BNB Chain team in a tweet states Greenfield is the “revolutionized data ownership and utility with the new Web3 standard!”

The configuration of BNB Greenfield

The Nodes layer provides the network infrastructure that enables developers to create, deploy, and manage their dApps. It is also responsible for hosting and maintaining the BNB Chain ledger.

Following the Nodes layer is the Protocol layer. The core of this layer will be composed of a set of consensus protocols that provide security and access control mechanisms. As well as scaling solutions to ensure that the BNB Chain can easily handle a high throughput of users.

Next is the Application layer which provides various applications, components, and tools for developers to utilize in building their dApps. It will also provide access to different blockchain data sources and exchanges so that users can easily monitor the status of their dApps.

This is followed by the Network Layer, which will provide the infrastructure for communication between different nodes and users. As well as ensure that transactions are securely and reliably broadcasted across the network.

The next is the Core Layer which will be responsible for maintaining the underlying blockchain network and its operations. It will also be responsible for consensus, mining rewards, and other core features that are necessary; for the functioning of the platform.

The Application Layer will provide the interface between users and the core blockchain network. It will be responsible for providing access to the blockchain, allowing users to interact with the platform and perform transactions.

This layer will also enable developers to build decentralized applications (dApps) that are compatible with the platform.

The last is the Security Layer, which will provide security features such as encryption, authentication, and authorization. To ensure that data is only accessible by authorized users and that transactions are valid and secure.


Blockchain technology is an innovative way to create secure, efficient, and transparent systems for business transactions.

The layers described above provide a comprehensive overview of the architecture of a blockchain platform. And how each layer contributes to its overall security, scalability, and performance.

By understanding the different layers of the blockchain architecture, developers can design effective solutions that make use of this powerful technology.

With the power of blockchain, businesses can have a secure platform to conduct transactions without any worry about security or data manipulation.
