  • Total Deployed Contracts: OpBNB has seen 143,502 contracts deployed to date.
  • Average Gas Price: With a low average gas price of 0.008 Gwei, opBNB proves to be a cost-effective choice for high-frequency transactions, NFT minting, and other applications, in comparison to other blockchains where gas fees can soar beyond $10 for NFT minting.
  • Transactions Per Second (TPS): OpBNB's TPS now rivals leading Layer 2 solutions, averaging at 5 TPS, positioning it as one of the top-performing blockchains according to l2beat data.
