The building never stops at the Binance BNB Chain. The latest implementation being worked on is parallel EVM execution.
In essence, parallel EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) is a way to improve the performance of block processes by executing concurrent transactions.
Parallel execution is not a new concept since BNB Chain developers have been working on its implementation since late 2021. However, it is an evolving technology with several phases of deployment.
On Jan. 31, developer ‘NodeReal’ stated that the latest code for parallel EVM had been released to Github.

The first phase, which involves foundations, architecture, and workflow setup, was implemented in May 2022. Phase 2, which is the performance-enhanced version, was implemented in November. Furthermore, phases 3 and 4 are currently in development.
The developer stated that the total block process (execution, validation, commit) cost has been reduced by around 20% to 50% on BNB Chain.
On-chain metrics for the network have remained steady during the bear market. According to BscScan, the daily transaction count is around 3.28 million, three times more than Ethereum layer-1.
Furthermore, there has been a 45% uptick in daily transactions since the beginning of the year. The BEP-20 daily token transfer figure has also topped 6 million on Jan. 31. Additionally, it has doubled since the beginning of the year but has been in a downtrend since November 2021.
BNB Smart Chain unique addresses have reached an all-time high of 247 million, according to BscScan. Daily active addresses for the network are currently 974,187, the same level they were at in mid-2022.
Furthermore, there are currently 756 daily verified smart contracts on the network. This is on par with Ethereum which had 741 per day as of Jan. 31.
The Binance native coin BNB has held on to most of its recent gains, bucking the market pullback this week. BNB is trading flat on the day at $312 but has ticked up 4% over the past week.
Additionally, there have recently been some large whale movements of the exchange coin.
