BNB transaction count soars
As per the above tweet, BNB’s weekly transactions surpassed 28 million last week. Apart from this, BNB’s daily average users remained at 1.2 million, while the blockchain’s gas fee was 0.00046 BNB.
A possible reason for the increase in transactions could be the launch of new dApps on the blockchain. This included Arrakis Finance, RYI Unity, Crecy.io, Head Games, and more.
Interestingly, GameFi might have also been a key contributor. BNB revealed a few days ago that 20 gaming dApps on BNB Chain accounted for 9.17% of the average daily transactions on BNB Chain.
Coupled with its new dApp launches in the GameFi ecosystem, it suggested that BNB’s GameFi has been instrumental in its growth.
BNB is watching the episode silently
Despite the expansions, BNB’s reaction on the price front was not volatile. The token’s price only increased marginally over the last seven days. As per CoinMarketCap, at the time of writing, BNB was trading at $323.68 with a market capitalization of over $50 billion.
A look at BNB’s metrics gave an understanding of what went wrong. For example, the token’s MVRV Ratio was resting low, which was bearish.
Negative sentiments around BNB also dominated the market, as evident from its weighted sentiment. Due to the slow-moving price action, BNB’s daily on-chain transaction volume in profit also plummeted. Additionally, its velocity also declined, suggesting that BNB’s frequency of transactions was low.

Investors must be patient
BNB’s daily chart revealed that investors might have to wait longer to enjoy profits. The MACD’s data indicated that the bears were ahead of the bulls.
Moreover, BNB’s Money Flow Index (MFI) registered a decline, which was yet another bearish signal. Its Relative Strength Index (RSI) also took a sideways path, further increasing the chances of a few more slow-moving days in terms of price action.
