The Most Used Tools and Utilities on BNB Chain
Tools and utilities dApps play an important role in Web3 from providing building infrastructures to developing Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). We take a deeper dive into the most used tools and utilities on BNB Chain and the tools and utility dApps available on opBNB and Greenfield.
Tools and utility BNB Chain dApps on DappBay are sub-categorized into APIs, coding, infrastructure, compliance, developers, infrastructure, oracles, SDKs, and Wallets. Moreover, each dApp can belong to more than one sub-category (for example, a dApp is an Oracle and provides an API).
While tooling and utility dApps may not share the same popularity of meme dApps in a bull run, nor the same recognition as DeFi dApps, most dApps utilize tools and utilities to scale, improve services, call on data from different sources, host campaigns, and more.
