Can Greenfield be the savior? 

However, the good news was that the Greenfield testnet launch looked promising. The new launch can help the blockchain attract new users, propping up network usage.

The BNB Greenfield is a blockchain and storage platform that seeks to unleash the power of decentralized technology on data ownership and the data economy. Soon after BNB launched the Congo testnet, it also made Greenfield’s code open source. 

The BNB Chain’s core developer community has a tradition of open-sourcing important code with full permissions to benefit the community.

Apart from the Greenfield update, on 12 April, the BNB Smart Chain also carried out the ‘Plank’ hard fork, which was designed to increase the layer-1 network’s reliability and security. The hard fork can also help garner more user interest, as it’s related to security. 

Sentiments around BNB were surprising

Despite these positive updates, sentiments around BNB remained negative. This was evident from a look at BNB’s decline in weighted sentiment.

Nonetheless, BNB’s social dominance was high, suggesting that it remained a topic of discussion in the crypto community. Thanks to the updates, BNB’s development activity also surged, which is generally a positive signal.

At the time of writing, it was trading at $332.98, with a market capitalization of over $51.9 billion.
