Is BNB’s network usage declining?
As per Token Terminal, over the last 90 days, BNB fees remained high but stagnant. It was also interesting to note that BNB Chain registered a double-digit decline in its revenue in the first quarter of 2023.
Stagnant fees indicated less usage of the network, which was further proven by BNB’s declining gas amount and plateaued daily transactions. As this latest integration can bring new users, a rise in fees and revenue can also be expected.
BNB in the bear market
The entire crypto market was currently under the influence of bears, causing a 3% decline in global crypto market capitalization. Though BNB was affected, its performance was comparatively better than most others on the list of the top 10 cryptos by market cap.
CoinMarketCap’s data revealed that BNB’s price declined by over 2.5% in the last 24 hours. At press time, it was trading at $317.19, with a market cap of over $49 billion.
Surprisingly, the number of BNB holders kept on increasing despite the recent price action. However, whale interest has declined, as evident from BNB’s whale transaction count.
