BNB hits the pre-FTX spot

Analysis of the Binance daily timeframe chart showed that BNB had been on an upward trajectory except for the current moment. Between 21st and 22nd February, BNB recorded an increase of over 7%, specifically achieving 7.03% on 21st February.

This surge propelled its price to $382.5, marking the first time since May 2022 that BNB reached this price range. The ascent to this range signifies the culmination of an uptrend that commenced around 7th February.

As of this writing, BNB was trading at around $376, reflecting a decline of over 1%.

Additionally, the chart showed that BNB entered the overbought zone on 20th February after consistently staying above the neutral line. Although it remained in the overbought zone at the time of this writing, the price decline has initiated a downward trajectory.

BNB volume pumps to yearly high

The Binance BNB volume chart analysis showed a convergence with the price, showing a simultaneous surge. By the end of 22nd February, the BNB volume had risen to over $2.3 billion.

A more in-depth analysis of the volume trend showed that this is the second time in over a year that the BNB volume has reached this level.

At the time of this writing, the volume has decreased to around $1.6 billion. Despite the decline observed at this moment, it remains one of the highest volumes witnessed recently.

Airdrop announcement pumps Binance volume

The surge in Binance volume and price can be attributed to an announcement made by Binance on 21st February. The exchange introduced its cross-chain gaming platform, Portal, to the Binance Launchpool.

This initiative provided Binance users with an opportunity to participate in the upcoming PORTAL token airdrop scheduled for 29th February and ensured the listing of the forthcoming token on the exchange.

Binance users could lock up their BNB tokens or FDUSD stablecoins in Portal’s liquidity pools to qualify for the airdrop.

Following this announcement, data from Arkham indicates that BNB holders transferred over $400 million worth of BNB tokens to Portal within 24 hours in anticipation of the airdrop.
