We will also go through the BEP-2 Token Standard later in this article. First, however, to fully realize this you need to understand the background of your Binance smart chain.

BEP-2 and BEP-20

The Binance chain accepts the BEP-2 token value, while the Binance smart chain uses the BEP20 value. Therefore, if you want to transact in both chains, you need to acquire some BNB.

This token value is fully compatible. That way, you can work seamlessly with them as an alternative between chains. While in the Binance chain, you need to work with its native token, BEP-2. While in BSc, you need to use BEP20. Therefore, if you interact with a dApp, you need to use BEP-20 because it is a smart chain counterpart.

What is the BEP20 Token Standard?

The BEP-20 is the Binance Smart Chain Token Standard. In many ways, this is similar to Ethereum’s ERC-20 standard; In other words, it extends into it. The BEP20 sets the rules that all tokens creat in BSC must follow.

The BSE BEP20 token applies to any token that is launched or created on the standard Binance smart chain platform. For instances of such tokens are utility tokens, stablecoins, and security tokens. Another category of currency, known as “peggy coins”, is also make using the BEP-20 standard and can be peg into various assets.
