Binance Coin’s Network Activity
BNB’s on-chain activity has gained momentum due to the latest surge in the price of Binance Coin. Trading volumes along with the number of BNB transactions have increased substantially during the last few months. BNB remained one of the most popular trading assets among retail and institutional traders in the latest crypto rally. The recent surge in BNB accelerated the liquidation of short BNB positions. According to the latest data published by crypto analytics platform Bybt.com, nearly $10 million worth of short BNB positions got liquidated in the last 24 hours.
In his latest tweet, Changpeng Zhao, CEO of digital exchange Binance, highlighted the importance of knowledge about BNB’s ecosystem and asked people to learn about Binance Coin. “Don’t buy BNB if you haven’t spent more than 3 full days learning about it. Its ecosystem is large and will take a while to understand. Don’t just buy it because its price has been going up,” Zhao tweeted.
