Binance Coin (BNB) spiked by 81%

22 April, 2019

The Binance crypto exchange’s native token established a new 52-week high, up 81.49-percent from its 52-week low price of $4.19. The move prompted BNB to come closer to retesting its all-time high price of $24.91, which was accomplished during the January 12 trading session in 2018. But are there more gains in store for this crypto asset? Let’s take a quick look at its near-term market outlook to understand where it might head next.

Binance on Thursday announced that it would launch Binance Chain, a public blockchain network which will support BNB tokens, on April 23. The exchange will soon integrate its decentralized exchange platform into the Binance Chain. At the same time, Binance will allow projects to issue new tokens on its chain, effectively enabling them to run initial coin offering rounds by raising funds in BNB.

Binance will earn a small fee from each trade on its decentralized exchange. The firm will also charge a listing fee from projects that issue their tokens on Binance Chain. According to CEO Changpeng Zhao, the listing fees could be as high as $100,000 based on the size of the project. Binance decentralized exchange will not hold custody of customers’ tokens.

Binance confirmed that they would use a limited number of nodes to run the Binance Chain. It means that the custom blockchain will be less decentralized than that of Ethereum. On a positive side, it would be able to process “a couple thousand” transaction every second to ensure a smooth running of the decentralized exchange on it.
