Binance has been on a bull run lately with all the latest and ongoing updates. The Binance Coin has continued to gain more grounds with a massive increase in both volume, price and most importantly market capitalization.
Not only has the Binance Coin ($BNB) skyrocketed to the 10th position, but the trading price is also nearing a $9 breakout. Interestingly, all of these which happened between now and the last 24hrs has continued to move up with so much swiftness and has ceased to show any sign of a downtrend.
Refer to the chart below:
At the time of this article, over 80% of the top ten most valuable cryptocurrencies are struggling to stay afloat as they battle severe losses ranging from 4 to 14%, excluding BNB of course, and more impressively, the coin has attained gains of 16.70% at press time, placing its trading price at $8.29 and making it the highest grossing coin in gains since the last 24hrs.
From $48.49 million to a current trading volume of $125.56 million at press time, BNB has certainly garnered a tremendous increase in traders and data from coinmarketcap shows that the Binance network has been the major pioneer of this turn out, as it takes the top three position with the highest trading volume for BNB traders.
With pairs of BNB/USDT, BNB/BTC, BTT/BNB birthing volumes of $47.25, $38.36 and $9.55 Million, traders are certain to multiply and boost trading volume to an ever higher price mark before the close of today. However, the possibility of this lies in the consistency of BNB.
