Watch Out for Binance Coin (BNB) in the Next Bull Run — it might Hit $200

The so-called ‘crypto winter,’ which dominated 2018, seems to have finally ended. Apart from an occasional correction, most coins are seeing gains, although the lack of institutional cash flow, as well as the investors’ hesitance to return,  are still preventing them from entering a proper bull run.

Even so, many believe that one such bull run will arrive eventually, maybe even at some point in 2019. If it does come, a lot of cryptocurrencies will see significant gains, and the prices will see huge recoveries. However, one coin, in particular, is expected to see massive gains, and potentially even reach heights it never saw before. We are, of course, talking about Binance Coin (BNB).

Binance Coin as the best performing coin

It sounds unlikely at first glance, but BNB actually has a pretty good chance to reach the $200 mark in the next bull run, and there are plenty of reasons why this might happen. First, let’s start by taking a look at BNB’s performance so far.

BNB is not a particularly old coin, and it was launched back in July 2017. In the early days, it was very low-valued, with its price being relatively close to zero. This was the period when BNB hit its all-time low, and it never approached such low levels again. It reached its all-time high in January 2018, right before the market crash, when it hit $24.

During the last year’s bear market, most cryptocurrencies lost 80% of their value or more. Bitcoin dropped from $20,000 to only $6.300 at first, and then $3,200 after that. Other coins, like XRP, lost even more. Binance Coin, meanwhile, lost only half of its value, and while its losses deepened, later on, it was still performing way better than any other crypto.

These days, the coin is less than 25% below its all-time high, which is something that cannot be said for any other coin. Further, the coin has a rather small supply. Its total supply is 189,175,490 BNB, but the circulating supply is 141,175,490 BNB. Binance also holds regular quarterly token burns where it buys circulating coins back, and it often burns as many as 2 million units at once. The goal is to continue doing this until the coin’s circulating supply is only 100 million, which will further draw its price.

Why BNB might hit $200

The first thing to take into an account is that Binance Coin was created by Binance, the largest crypto exchange in the world in terms of trading volume. This means that the coin has its back by the exchange, which uses it as its native token.

Next, Binance Coin also has a number of extremely valuable use cases. While it is mostly useful only within Binance exchange at the moment, it still sees quite a lot of usage as it provides its users with a massive discount on trading fees. Further, the coin is also the only cryptocurrency which can be used for buying tokens launched by Binance Launchpad.

Binance Launchpad is a well-known project which holds one ICO per month, and while it was created a while ago, it was not used during the crypto winter. It became operational again in 2019, announcing that each month, it plans to hold one token sale, featuring interesting, legitimate projects, which the exchange will research and approve of, itself.

So far, this has included three coins — BitTorrent (BTT), Fetch.AI (FET), and Celer Network (CELR) — all of which were sold within 15 minutes. FET token sale actually holds the record for being the fastest ICO ever, being completed within seconds. All three token sales were only available for Binance users, and the only way to purchase the coins was via BNB. The token sales were still a massive success, even though ICOs are believed to be dead at this point.

This only proves that the model is not dead, as long as there is a trusted entity behind them. And Binance is certainly one of the most trusted ones in the industry, with millions of users, numerous trading pairs, and all the most popular coins being offered on its platform.

Obviously, this is another massive use case for BNB, and it is responsible not only for the surge of BNB price but also for the growth of its usage. The coin currently has a trading volume of $155 million, which is impressive considering that almost all of it comes only from Binance.

Further, Binance also recognized the issue many crypto users are struggling with, which is a crypto-fiat exchange, particularly in Europe, where the USD is not among the main currencies. This is why the exchange launched Binance Jersey, a Europe-centered subsidiary which allows users to purchase cryptocurrencies with GBP and EUR. Thus, BNB became the entry point into the crypto world for entire Europe, which increased its price and usage even further.

Binance has much greater plans for BNB

While all of this already seems like a huge deal for BNB, it is still nowhere near the end of the coin’s potential. Binance is actually in the process of developing its personal blockchain, called Binance Chain. The blockchain will be decentralized, and it will use BNB as its base currency.

But beyond that, Binance is also creating its own decentralized exchange — Binance DEX. A decentralized exchange comes as a response to the crypto world’s unyielding desire to reach full decentralization — something that is impossible while the biggest exchanges out there remain heavily centralized.

With DEXes already appearing left and right, Binance decided to launch its own, and turn itself into an entire community, rather than just another trading platform, even if it is the biggest one in the world. Once the DEX goes live (it is currently in beta), it will likely become the largest DEX in the world. It will have a reputable background, advanced mechanisms, and a trusted coin as its base currency — Binance Coin.

Every transaction within the DEX will require BNB in some amount, and the coin will be larger than ever. In fact, many view it as one of the biggest coins in the future, which will serve on the biggest exchange, and be paired with every coin which enters the exchange.

This is the true potential for Binance Coin, and while there is no guarantee that it will become a new Bitcoin, it might as well become the next best thing. With all of that in mind, the coin will surely hit the $200 mark sooner or later, and the only question is — where its limit might be?

With low supply, many huge use cases, and trust above all — sky is the limit for BNB. The coin is probably one of the safest investments today, and more people recognize it as such each day. The next big bull run will be an interesting one, and when it comes, be sure to keep a close eye on BNB, as those who choose to HODL it might soon become very lucky.

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

We are now halfway through 2019, and the situation in the crypto space is better than ever in the past year. Numerous cryptos are seeing large gains, often cut by brief periods of stagnation or small corrections, but the overall sentiment is obviously bullish.

Bitcoin sits way above the $8k mark, and while it struggles to go beyond $8,700, it is still trying to grow. Investors and analysts are quite bullish regarding the foreseeable future, and a lot of altcoins are expected to follow BTC in this regard. However, today, we would like to talk about one particular altcoin — TRON (TRX) — as well as why it is likely to go big in June.

TRON’s progress so far

As many people in and out of TRON community know, TRX is not a project that often sits still. It is rich with announcements, particularly when it comes to his CEO, Justin Sun, whose enthusiastic tweets often seem like hype building to many.

However, TRON made some massive progress in 2018, which was the worst year cryptocurrencies have ever seen. This is not something that can be achieved through hype alone, and the project needs to have true quality and value in order to see such massive development in the middle of the longest and harshest crypto winter in…

IOTA (MIOTA) Pending Update Might Bring Huge Gains in Days to Come

IOTA

The crypto space is erupting once again, and if popular predictions are correct — the growth is only starting. However, in the vast sea of altcoins that hold the massive potential to go big in the future, we would like to set IOTA aside as one of the coins that might blow up quite soon.

As always, there are no guarantees of this, as the crypto space still lacks regulations, and remains highly volatile. To see proof of this, all you need to do is look at Bitcoin, which goes up by $1,000 within a day, only to slowly drop by $700 in the following week, and then repeat the process. In other words, there is still a lot of uncertainty regarding any project, and that includes IOTA.

However, even with all of that in mind, many are quite optimistic about this particular project, especially after a recent announcement. The announcement in question indicates that IOTA is about to see a massive upgrade. In most cases, this would be more than enough of a reason to expect the coin to start performing better. But, in IOTA’s case, this is nearly a guarantee that it will.

The update is believed to carry a lot of fixes for a lot of problems that traders and investors have been reporting for a while. No crypto is perfect, and since IOTA is…
