Since its meteoric rise that took place last week, Binance Coin has made plenty of headlines. Now, on Twitter, Weiss Ratings, the only financial rating agency in the world that deals with crypto, claims that BNB is the next BTC.

The inevitable comparison

The native token of the Binance exchange is already up by more than 300 percent this year, leading the top 10 cryptocurrencies. The recent launch of Binance Chain triggered another price rally.

As reported by U.Today, BNB is so far only the second cryptocurrency that surpassed its ATH set during the peak of the bull market in January 2018. After allegedly decoupling from Bitcoin, Binance Coin is the boss right now, and other altcoins follow its lead.

With that being said, some Twitter users still took such a comparison with a grain of salt.

More than a fluke

Back in March, Weiss Cryptocurrency Ratings determined that Binance Coin was among the best coins along with EOS, Ripple’s XRP, and Bitcoin. The report points out that BNB had yet to prove that its price surge wasn’t a flash in the pan. However, the fact that Binance incentivizes its users to hold BNB tokens with a number of programs proves that it’s also about the long-term game, not just price speculation.
