Communications network Push Protocol will expand to BNB Chain, the world’s largest smart contract blockchain in terms of daily active users, as part of a broader plan to gain more users.

According to DeFiLlama, BNB Chain is the third-largest blockchain network with more than $5 billion total value locked, and an estimated 230 million unique wallet addresses.

“Until now, Push Protocol’s web3 notification services have been limited to Ethereum and Polygon,” said Harsh Rajat, project lead and founder of Push Protocol, in a statement to CoinDesk. “We know that BNB Chain is hugely popular with retail investors and are excited to expand our offering to this entirely new segment,”

Push Protocol enables cross-chain notifications, transactional data, or software-based messaging on on-chain wallets and decentralized finance (DeFi) applications to a user's wallet address.

Any smart contract, dapp or back-end service can integrate Push to provide a communication layer through notifications or chats that are tied to the wallet addresses of users.

This is similar to notifications by websites or applications on smartphones, where relevant or important information is shown to users.

Push Protocol’s native PUSH tokens were trading at 38 cents at the time of writing time.
