What You Need to Know About the BNB Burn
Since the launch of BNB and Binance in 2017, we're committed to removing 100 million BNB, or half of the total supply, from circulation, through a burning process. The number of tokens removed is automatically calculated according to the Auto-Burn formula. This burn mechanism was introduced in the last quarter of 2021.
The BNB Auto-Burn provides an independently auditable, objective process independent of the Binance centralized exchange. On top of that, BNB Chain still continues to burn a portion of BNB Chain’s gas fees in real time.
BNB is a deflationary currency, which means that it maintains a stable value through burning its tokens throughout the year.
