Binance Coin (BNB) Migration: Important Announcement and Migration Methods

Binance has recently decided to terminate the operation of Beacon Chain, with an expected completion by the end of June 2024. Therefore, Binance officially requests that users transfer their BNB from Beacon Chain to Binance Smart Chain as soon as possible to avoid any loss of assets.

Based on this situation, Ballet also strongly advises users who still have BNB on Beacon Chain in their cards to transfer it to Binance Smart Chain as soon as possible.

*Please note that the migration is only required for BNB on the Beacon Chain (the coin is called Binance Coin (Migrating)); BNB on the Binance Smart Chain does not need to be migrated.
