BNB Chain Sees 1-year Transaction High; Demonstrates Network Reliability After BSC Surge

November 19 saw BSC record more than 9.5M transactions in a single day

Earlier in the week, BSC demonstrated gas price stability during a similar surge

On November 19, 2023, BNB Chain, the community-driven blockchain ecosystem, saw its highest traffic rates since May of 2022 with transactions exceeding 9.5M for the day. More than 7M of the 9.5M daily transactions were attributed to inscription minting transactions on BNB Smart Chain (BSC).

The 1-year high comes amid a week of traffic surges on BSC. November 17 likewise saw a spike in traffic, with gas prices on BSC remaining consistent during the surge. On November 17, with TPS (transactions per second) reaching almost 250 at the peak, gas prices remained consistent at the $0.016 threshold.

While TPS rose to almost 250 on Nov. 17, gas prices on BSC remained steady at $0.016.

BSC’s very large block size is what allows it to handle spikes in traffic smoothly while maintaining a stable gas price. With TPS at around 200, the usage of the block is only at around 15-20%, meaning that the network still has plenty of space left to handle further traffic.
