**When should you use BIGINT?**

BigInt is a new data type intended for use when integer values are larger than the range supported by the Number data type. This data type allows us to safely perform arithmetic operations on large integers, represent high-resolution timestamps, use large integer IDs, and more without the need to use a library.
