About BAS

What is BAS?

BAS is a framework for creating sidechains in the BSC ecosystem. In other words, it's an infrastructure to help developers and node operators build and run their own blockchains as their internal value system and for a massive number of users while still maintaining a close connection with BNB Chain (BSC).
The main BAS task is to allow any developer to raise their blockchain in a matter of hours, with its unique specifications and validator set. Such blockchain, out-of-the-box, can be connected to the BSC infrastructure.
The validator set can run with fewer validators than BNB Chain, depending on the BAS deployer. The validators can be run by the application owners or any community stakeholders, bringing more flexibility and decentralization to BAS.
We can say this is a standard on which you can build simple but functional blockchain projects. Developers and teams can create simple blockchains with their own business rules and economies. Most importantly, they can extend the existing functionality.

Architecture

BAS is a modular framework for creating BSC-compatible sidechains.
It defines requirements for integration with the BSC ecosystem and brings development-ready EVM-compatible features like staking, RPC-API, and smart contracts. Since BSC doesnโ€™t rely on the BAS security model, there is no default embedded production-ready bridge solution between the BSC and BAS networks. Instead, BAS can provide protocols and standards for integrating third-party bridges that can be managed by the BAS validator set of other projects like AnySwap or Celer Network cBridge, of course, if they trust the BAS development team.
