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.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.

The market for cryptocurrencies started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, and since then, so many cryptocurrencies have been launched that it gets hard to keep track of them. The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.
From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.
What is Libra?
Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.
