Embarking on a development journey can be exhilarating, but it can also be daunting, especially when it involves exploring new technologies.
Fear not! At opBNB, we’re committed to providing developers with all the tools and resources they need to build their dreams on this optimistic rollup Layer 2 scaling solution for BNB Smart Chain.
In this article, we’ll walk you through the wealth of tutorials and guides available to ensure you never feel alone on your development path.
The Seamless EVM-Compatible Solution
Developing on opBNB is remarkably similar to building directly on BNB Smart Chain. As an EVM execution engine, opBNB allows decentralized applications to migrate from Ethereum, BNB Smart Chain, Polygon, and other EVM-compatible chains with minimal code changes. Some key highlights to remember:
Optimistic Rollup for Scalability: By bundling transactions off-chain and using fraud proofs to ensure validity, opBNB scales BNB Smart Chain, achieving significantly higher throughput than the underlying Layer 1.
EVM Compatibility: Leveraging the same virtual machine used by Ethereum and BNB Smart Chain, opBNB enables developers to deploy their dApps, smart contracts, and applications with little to no code changes.
Smooth Migration from EVM Chains: Applications running on Ethereum, BNB Smart Chain, or Polygon can effortlessly migrate to opBNB due to its EVM compatibility, functioning seamlessly on the new network.
A Step-by-Step Guide to Building on opBNB
To guide you through your opBNB development journey, we’ve curated a comprehensive step-by-step tutorial that covers everything you need to know:
Wallet Configuration: this page provides you information on how to configure your wallet to work and the steps you will need to follow.
Network Information: here we walk you through the both public and private RPC endpoint
Network Faucets: If you want to test the functionality of the BNB Smart Chain, you will need some testing tokens, such as tBNB and other major tokens like USDC, BUSD, DAI, and wrapped Bitcoin. We guide you through the ways to claim these testing tokens.
Deposit Tokens to opBNB: Before building or deploying any applications on the opBNB network, you must first deposit tBNB as your gas token from BNB Smart Chain to opBNB. You show you how this can be done using the opBNB bridge dApp.
Rich Resources for Support and Troubleshooting
The support does not end with Getting Started guides alone. Our opBNB ecosystem provides a wealth of resources to help you throughout your journey:
Core concepts explained: where you break down the fundamentals behind the opBNB architect.
We also include several tutorials on the following topics:
