Binance Coin (BNB) is the native token of Binance – the world’s largest exchange in the crypto market. It is powered by the Ethereum platform and runs under the ERC20 protocol. The total supply of BNB is slightly under 200 mln. Recently, it has managed to rise on Coinmarketcap and grab position #10.

Binance launched its coin in the summer of 2017.

The exchange provides a big catalyst for its token. Binance intends to set aside 20 percent of its quarterly revenue to recover from the market 50 percent of the BNB supply that has been sold already, and then it plans to burn those coins. This would ensure a limited offer of the asset and may well let its price soar.

Binance has already conducted a coinburn recently, on January 16. Back then, $9.4 mln worth of BNB coins was destroyed. After that, Binance Coin saw major momentum, and its price got over the $10 mark.

BNB’s long-term prospects

At the end of 2018, the CEO of Binance announced that the exchange is about to launch a decentralized exchange (DEX). On February 20, 2019, the testnet phase of the DEX started.

The decentralized platform is backed by the Binance Chain – a blockchain developed specially for it by Binance. BNB is presently an ERC20-based token, but ultimately it will migrate to the new platform to turn into a native token.

This roadmap could ensure a massive rise for BNB in the future. However, if the DEX fails to deliver on the community’s expectations, everything may happen the other way round.

Right after the announcement regarding the DEX, BNB began ascending and since then has managed to grow from $6.20 to $11.67. Its current price is $10.77, as per Coinmarketcap.
