BNB Mainnet and how it differs from BNB ERC-20

Binance Coin or BNB coin — is a native Binance coin. It used to be ERC20 token based on Ethereum blockchain and since 23rd April 2019 BNB migrated to Binance Chain and become the new blockchain’s native asset.

The improved version of Binance Coin ‎‎(BNB) is expected to represent the motherboard that serves the entire Binance blockchain and serve as the foundation for Binance’s DEX (first of all, for decentralized BNB change to other tokens based on Binance Chain).

Binance Chain is supposed to do a much better job (speed, transaction fees, etc) than Ethereum. Binance team expects all of the regulated token offerings and ICOs moving forward to take place on Binance Chain as it simply provides a much better platform for these use cases.
