By now, most people in the crypto space know about Binance Coin (BNB) — a cryptocurrency developed by Binance crypto exchange, and one of the top performing coins in 2019 so far. In the last few months, many have been especially bullish about this coin, while the coin itself managed to outperform pretty much every cryptocurrency out there.
Since the year started, BNB managed to triple its price, surging from around $5 to $15.83. Even now, at the time of writing, the coin’s price is at $15.51, with a growth of 5.53% in the last 24 hours. If Bitcoin were to perform this well, its price would now be around $12,000 per coin, instead of only $4,000.
There is, of course, a reason for BNB’s growth — several, actually. It has been created and backed by the largest exchange in the world by trading volume, and it has become the native cryptocurrency of Binance ecosystem. It provides its users with a huge discount in terms of trading fees, and it is the only cryptocurrency that can be used for buying new tokens which are being sold on Binance Launchpad.
Further, since the launch of Binance Jersey, a new project targeting European markets, BNB can also be exchanged for GBP and EUR, which provides investors with a new gateway into the crypto space. In addition, Binance is holding regular quarterly token burns which reduce the coin’s circulating supply, thus ensuring the existing coins’ value.
Finally, Binance is working on developing its own blockchain, as well as its own decentralized exchange, which will be fueled by BNB. The DEX is still in its beta version, with Binance currently gathering feedback from those who are testing it. However, once the Binance Chain and Binance DEX go live, the coin will be their base currency, which will give it even more use cases, and even a higher price.
But, the question that traders and investors around the world are asking is — how high can BNB actually go? What to expect when it comes to its price?
BNB price predictions
As mentioned, BNB has seen massive growth since the year started. Its gains were so high that it is now considered the only coin in the market that has decoupled from Bitcoin, which puts it in a unique position to carve its own path, and not have to depend on BTC.
This has been one of the reasons why BNB managed to triple its price in less than three months. As March approaches its end, many are wondering how BNB might perform in April?
Well, depending on the predictions, BNB might either continue its growth or see a price correction which will bring it down to an average price of $7.14. So far, there were no indications that the coin’s price will drop, and a recent correction has been only a minor one, and its impact has already been nullified by the current surge.
However, if BNB does drop to the mentioned price, it will continue to grow once again from there. By the end of 2019, this scenario sees BNB back at around $10.11, while it will once again reach its current price by July 2020.
However, it should be mentioned that this is a highly unlikely scenario. As mentioned, BNB has no reason to drop anytime soon, at least not to this extent. Further, the launch of Binance Chain and Binance DEX are bound to send the coin’s price to the moon, whether it drops or not. The calculations that saw BNB’s drop only included the coin’s past performance and were based on the patterns it had gone through earlier.
However, considering that the coin spent most of its lifetime in a bearish market, it is clear that this is the worst possible scenario, which is, once again, not very likely.
But, even if we do take this approach to the coin, the same predictions see BNB hit an average price of around $105 by the end of 2022, meaning that even the grimmest predictions for BNB see it skyrocketing in years to come.
BNB future remains bright no matter what happens in April or following months, as Binance developers made quite smart moves in giving the coin its numerous use cases, with even more of them being announced. Many investors have recognized this, and they are buying the coin while it is still cheap. This has brought its daily trading volume to around $155 million, which is impressive considering that most of the coin’s activity and usage comes from Binance alone.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
