BNB, like most major cryptocurrencies, has experienced a significant bull rally in the last few weeks. The initial breakout above $18,22, a crucial resistance level happened on July 12 and took BNB price up to $18,99 before a notable rejection.
After hitting a low of $16.54, the bulls managed to see a bounce and significant continuation above $18,99 eventually breaking $20 and peaking at $22.5 on August 3.
Binance Coin is experiencing a small increase in trading volume.
What Is The Real Value of BNB?
Essentially, one could say that BNB represents Binance price if it was a publicly-traded company in the stock market. We know that BNB reacts to positive announcements from Binance, and of course, it should. Initially, BNB was used to raise funds through an ICO, Binance managed to raise $15 million back in 2017 offering BNB tokens for sale.
The amazing success of Binance translated into a huge success for BNB, currently ranked 10th by market capitalization. Binance suffered attacks before, however, thanks to the ‘SAFU’ fund, customers can feel safe as it can be used to pay them back.
Now, Binance Coin is used in various ways to pay for frees and to get trading discounts on Binance. It is also used during Initial Exchange Offerings (IEO), also called Binance Launchpad. Furthermore, BNB is subject to a quarterly burn which will destroy 50% of all the supply, eventually.
Again, BNB value kind of represents Binance price if it was being traded. Binance is currently working on its own card to enable customers to pay with crypto anywhere. According to the official announcement the card works like a regular debit card and can be topped out using your Binance account. The card was already launched in Europe and will be launched in many other regions. Currently, it supports BTC, BNB, SXP, and BUSD.
