Binance sees swings in volume
According to Santiment data, the volume chart for Binance’s BNB token exhibited clear indications of a recent downtrend. The initial signs of this downtrend became evident around 13 September, as the volume plummeted from over $500 million to approximately $300 million. This downtrend coincided with reports of layoffs and the resignation of the CEO of Binance US.
However, the volume experienced another upswing around 16 September, surpassing $600 million, only to decline again the next day. As of the time of writing, the volume had rebounded, exceeding $622 million.
Monitoring transactions on the smart chain
An examination of Binance’s transaction volume on DefiLlama revealed a noticeable decrease in the number of transactions occurring on the chain. An analysis of the transaction trend demonstrated that Binance kicked off the year with robust activity but experienced a downturn starting around May. Prior to this decline, the average transaction size exceeded $4 million. However, as of the current moment, the transaction volume dwindled to approximately $3 million.
Furthermore, there has been a decrease in the stablecoin market cap within the network, signaling a reduction in liquidity. At the beginning of the year, the stablecoin market cap surpassed $9 billion but has since contracted to around $5 billion as of this writing.
BNB continues its renewed uptrend
Analyzing the daily price trend of Binance Coin (BNB) revealed a recent uptick. The chart indicated that BNB consistently witnessed a series of minor uptrends, each of which was less than 1%, spanning the past three days. At the time of writing, BNB was trading at approximately $219, boasting a price increase of over 1%.
