Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, had seen momentous success with the launch of its native token; the community has celebrated Binance Coin [BNB] and the victory. The latest news showed that the cryptocurrency underwent another change, with Whale Alert reporting that over 2 billion BNB tokens were burned at Binance.
The exact amount that was burned was 2,061,888 BNB, which amounted to a significant $36.736 million. The event occurred on October 17 at 5:11 UTC with a hash of D3ED9EFA4A242BD06E667A1F5DF102BC190C9EE76F7DB8005A5633FD7D46732A. The block height of the block that conducted the transaction was 41881636, a number that has grown steadily over the past couple of months.
Many members of the community were clamoring to praise the token’s rapid movement with Tommy Mustache, a popular cryptocurrency enthusiast tweeting:
“It appears Binance had just burned $36M USD or 2M $BNB token for the Q3 quarterly token burn.In a few years, there will be less and less $BNB token out in the market. The writing is on the wall already for this to be a $100 token one day. Just need for this bear market to end.”
He was also supported by several other proponents of the cryptocurrency space as users like Rad_Shar commented:
“$100 is lowballing at best. Hit $57 earlier this year. Neblio hit $65 in the last bull run. $binance is the frontrunner of exchanges going into the next bullrun.”
Some fans and analysts of the cryptocurrency predict that looking at the growth in its prices this year; people can expect the value to rise to $3578 by January 2020. But again, that is just a prediction.
