Where does BNB stand on the spectrum?
While all looked in favor of BNB, its performance on the price front had a different tale to tell. According to CoinMarketCap, BNB’s price declined by more than 1.2% over the last week. Furthermore, at press time, it was trading at $244.81 with a market capitalization of over $39 billion.
Furthermore, Santiment’s data painted a clearer picture regarding which direction BNB was headed. BNB’s Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) Ratio registered an uptick over the last week. This could be considered as a positive as it suggested a price increment in the days to come.
After a decline, BNB’s volume also chose to follow the same path, and witnessed a slight uptick. However, BNB’s popularity was affected despite these promising updates. This was because the coin’s social volume registered a decline.
