Binance Review, Month 45: Record Burn
2021-4-18

During Binance’s Month 45 (March 15 to April 15, 2021), Binance burned $593 million worth of BNB and launched stock tokens, while Binance Smart Chain recorded 5 million daily transactions, as the overall crypto market rises to $2 trillion.

The Big Story: Record Burns and New Stock Tokens

Between March 15 and April 15, the crypto market soldiered on top new record highs. The market capitalization of the entire cryptocurrency market breached $2 trillion, just a few months after it recorded its first trillion. Bitcoin was getting close to $65,000, while Ethereum briefly breached $2,500 and BNB went on another tear from sub-$300 levels to as high as $600.

During its 45th month, Binance also made records of its own. For its 15th quarterly BNB Burn (January to March 2021), Binance burned a total of 1,099,888 BNB, equivalent to $595,314,380 worth of tokens. This is the highest burn amount in fiat terms, reflecting the monumental growth of Binance during this past bullish quarter. Read about Binance CEO CZ’s thoughts on the rise of Binance Smart Chain (BSC), the crypto bull run, and more on this article.

Speaking of BSC, the native blockchain of BNB reached as much as 5 million daily transactions, 4x the transaction count of Ethereum. The BSC landscape continues to grow by leaps and bounds, with several of the DeFi projects using BSC notching records of their own.

Shortly after the burn, Binance introduced Stock Tokens. Now, you can access both cryptocurrency and traditional stock markets, all from the comfort of your Binance account. The first stock token on Binance is Tesla Inc. (TSLA), which has a minimum trade size of one-hundredth of a stock token, representing the same fraction of a Tesla share. 

Amid all the growth within and outside the Binance ecosystem, we have renewed our commitment to Customer Service upgrades. In a recent personal letter addressed to our community, Binance CEO CZ addresses our ongoing efforts in meeting growing customer service requests and how we are scaling efforts to improve our user experience.
