Binance unlocks its BNB, Tron is to follow suit
Several crypto platforms that have native currencies have sent only part of the pre-issued stock to circulation, having kept the rest for the needs of the project. From time to time, some of them, such as Ripple, unfreeze a certain amount from that stock to finance themselves or sponsor other projects.
Ripple regularly unlocks from several million to a billion XRP from their escrow account. XRP is not mineable and for these two reasons many consider the project centralized unlike Bitcoin, Ethereum and other projects.
As per CZ’s Binance, the team is not going to spend the unlocked BNB but hold the coins long term.
Tron to unlock their TRX
During the live stream that took place a couple of days ago, Justin Sun said that as 2020 starts, Tron will also unlock their TRX coins, however, the team has not yet planned how to use them.
Earlier, it was reported that some of Binance’s staff have chosen to receive their salary in BNB.
