Burning of BNB Tokens
The Binance Cryptocurrency Exchange recently announced its largest-ever and 17th quarterly BNB burn. The exchange burned almost 1.4 million tokens. At current prices, these tokens are worth nearly $640 million. Consequently, the token’s value scaled up to around $480 from approximately $305.
When Binance launched the token in 2017, it proposed to burn 50% of its total supply. This would mean the burning of 100 million tokens. The company to date has burned 16.6% of the tokens which are in circulation. Binance burns tokens each quarter based on the trading volumes of the previous quarter.
Why burn tokens? You may ask? Exchanges burn tokens to remove several digital coins from circulation permanently. This, in turn, reduces the number of coins in circulation, which leads to an increase in the value of the digital coin.
