Today we’re pleased to announce additional support for the BNB Smart Chain (commonly known as BSC) with our integration of the testnet. Since our announcement that we support BNB Smart Chain, it was only natural to extend this coverage to the testnet environment.
BSC is a blockchain platform developed by the popular cryptocurrency exchange Binance. It was launched in 2019 with the goal of providing a fast, low-cost alternative to the Ethereum network for decentralised applications (dApps) and smart contracts. BSC uses the Binance Coin (BNB) as its native cryptocurrency and has gained popularity among developers and users due to its fast transaction speeds and low fees.
SubQuery’s flexible, fast, open, and decentralised data indexing solution provides blockchain developers with the tools needed to easily organise and query on-chain data for their protocol and applications. Abstracting the backend, SubQuery provides a custom API and lets developers focus on product development and user experience rather than building their own indexing solutions.
SubQuery is currently focused on decentralising and tokenizing the protocol to build the SubQuery Network. The SubQuery Network will index and service data from projects to the global community in an incentivized and verifiable way and support indexing BNB projects, and those from any other supported Layer-1 from the outset.
For BNB developers who are existing users of The Graph, you can follow the guide here to migrate your project to SubQuery and supercharge your indexing today. The migration from a SubGraph to a SubQuery Project is (by design) easy and quick. It may take you an hour or two to complete the migration, depending on the complexity of your SubGraph.

About BNB chain
BNB chain is a blockchain platform developed by the popular cryptocurrency exchange Binance.

SubQuery is a leading blockchain data indexer that provides developers with fast, flexible, universal, and decentralised APIs for web3 projects. We empower developers from over 80+ ecosystems including Ethereum, Polygon, Polkadot, Cosmos, Algorand, NEAR, and Avalanche with rich indexed data to allow them to build intuitive and immersive decentralised applications. This blockchain developer toolkit enables developers to focus on their core use case and front-end without wasting time building a custom backend for data processing activities. In the near future, the SubQuery Network will replicate this scalable and reliable solution in a completely decentralised manner.
