BNB recovers by 33% as its transaction volume soars

Since last morning, the native cryptocurrency of Binance exchange, BNB, ranked fourth on CoinMarketCap, has added a whole 33% to its market value. At press time, the coin is trading at $305, climbing from $230 to that level.

Prior to that, on April 20, BNB began to decline from the $428 zone, reaching a low of $227 on May 12.

The Twitter account of the BNB Chain has posted a tweet, saying that the volume of transactions on the network has soared to record numbers last seen in December.

Besides, it seems that after the LUNA crash, investors rushed to buy the top 10 cryptos, including Bitcoin, ETH, SOL and BNB.

CZ offers a plan as to how UST/LUNA could have been saved

Another likely reason for the BNB price uptick is the recent tweet of CZ Binance, in which he wrote that he got in touch with the LUNA/UST team and offered them a detailed plan on how to reverse the crash of both coins.

His suggestion to the team was that the Terra network had to be restored, and the extra LUNA minted should have been burned and the UST peg recovered. He got no response from them, so CZ tweeted that he was very disappointed with the way they "handled (or not handled)" the situation.

As a result, Binance chose to suspend LUNA and UST trading in order to protect their customers.

He mentioned that some traders on Binance again rushed to buy LUNA "on the dip" since deposits were allowed at that moment. They were not aware of the fact they were buying newly minted LUNA, CZ stressed.

He also admitted that Binance usually tries to help crypto projects that got into trouble and does not criticize. This time, however, the circumstances drove CZ to break that rule.
