Although there were frequent thunderstorms on BSC, there were even major security problems during the National Day holiday, which led to the machine down. But have to admire Binance's strategy, yes, it has a lot of money, how to make money, constantly investing in projects is a way. However, in any case, if the BSC problem is not solved, Binance Labs had better become a VC institution outside the system alone, otherwise it always makes people have a unreliable feeling.
