According to the announcement, the programme is the largest ever announced in the crypto space.

Binance, the cryptocurrency exchange, has announced a $1 billion accelerator fund to expand the capabilities of the Binance Smart Chain ecosystem and accelerate mainstream adoption across the financial technology sector.

The exchange showcased the eight-figure fund in a tiered development model across four specialist areas: Talent Development, Liquidity Incentive Program, Builder Program, Investment & Incubation Program. The announcement suggested that they will allocate $100M, $100M, $300M and $500M to each segment respectively.

The largest benefactor of the pot, the investment & incubation program, will focus on multi-chain expansion of the already burgeoning areas of the technological sphere. This includes various metaverses, gaming, virtual reality and artificial intelligence.

Maverick founder of Binance, Changpeng Zhao — otherwise known as CZ on Twitter — shared a simple, yet effective perspective on the news:

In the statement, the platform outlined high expectations for the advancement of interoperability between traditional and Web 3.0 infrastructures:

“With collaborations from industry-leading organizations, the investment fund will target scaling blockchain technology for real-life use cases and will bridge the gap between crypto-blockchain and the current technical-financial sectors.”

Binance Smart Chain was introduced to the market in September 2020 as a foundational launchpad to foster the development of decentralized applications, or dApps, compatible with the Ethereum blockchain through the Ethereum Virtual Machine.

Since its inception, the platform has grown in stature to serve over 1 million daily active users across a diverse set of over 900 dApps. According to Defistation data, one of the most notable decentralised exchanges, or DEXs, built on BSC is PancakeSwap, which currently has a total value locked, or TVL, figure of 9.8 billion.

Binance Smart Chain partnered with blockchain security firm ImmuneFi to offer bug bounties and other reward incentives to ethically-focused whitehat hackers and developers in the midst of the insidious rise of hacks and breaches in the decentralised finance, or DeFi, space.
