Earlier today, Ether spiked to a new all-time high of $1,952.14 and was trading at $1,930.99, at press time. The world’s largest altcoin has been up by 0.4% and 1% in the hourly and daily time frames respectively.
Lately, many users have been complaining about the high costs of the asset and Ethereum’s inability to tackle rising gas fees and its network congestion.
Recently, Binance’s native token, BNB became the third-largest digital currency in the world, with more than $44 billion in trading volume, according to data from Coinmarketcap.
At press time, BNB was trading at $286.22 with a 6.6% hike in price in the last hour. With a 24-hour trading volume of more than $15 billion, BNB has had a 49.3% hike in the daily time frame. Coincidentally, BNB surged past its new all-time high of $273.93 about an hour ago, which was roughly about the same time the exchange suspended ETH withdrawals.
