BNB makes history

At the time of writing this article, the price of the BNB token is at $24.65, rising above its previous ATH of $24.46 that was recorded on Jan. 12. Hence, Binance Coin, the seventh largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, becomes only the second asset to reach a new price peak after the crash of the speculation-driven bull market. EOS, which is sitting one spot above BNB on CMC, achieved a similar feat in May 2018.

‘Binance Coin is outpacing the overall crypto market. While Bitcoin is off 75% from its all-time-high, Binance Coin has recovered. There is fundamental growth and synergy taking place that is contributing to the rising price of Binance Coin,’ says BitBull Capital CEO Joe DiPasquale.
