How to Transfer/Bridge from Polygon to BSC
The Binance Smart Chain (BSC) was born to reduce the speed and cost of working on the Ethereum network. The crypto exchange Binance introduced this chain to enable DApp development with larger capacity, faster speeds, and lower latency compared to Ethereum. BSC has used Proof of Stake, or a slightly modified version known as Proof of Staked Authority (PoSA). BSC is increasing in popularity every day, therefore, in this article, we will see how you can transfer from Polygon to BSC.
