  • Bitcoin’s surge benefited Binance, especially with the rise in interest in Bitcoin ETFs.
  • Binance’s key role in BTC liquidity and trade volume positioned it well amid growing interest.

Bitcoin’s [BTC] rally inspired the growth of many other coins in the sector. Interestingly, exchanges have also benefitted from BTC’s price action.

Binance sees growth

Bitcoin’s recent surge, driven by ETFs, positively impacted Binance. The exchange experienced increased liquidity and a daily trade volume surpassing $10 billion in February, showcasing its continued significance in the market.

Although these volumes have yet to reach the 10-month highs recorded just before the ETF launch, Binance’s role remained significant.

Examining Bitcoin’s average trade size on Binance, which serves as a proxy for institutional participation, shows that it reached its highest level in a year on 13th February, consistently staying above $1,000 since the start of 2024.

In terms of market depth, measuring aggregated bids and asks on BTC order books, the exchange has experienced a notable improvement.

The market depth has increased by 23% since the end of November and by 30% year-over-year, reaching $485 million. This improvement suggests a resurgence in market maker activity on Binance.

As interest in Bitcoin and ETFs grow, Binance stands to benefit from its role as a prominent exchange, particularly in the context of spot ETF listings.

Legal troubles

Despite all the good news, Binance’s sentiment may face challenges due to its legal issues. U.S. prosecutors are urging a federal judge to ratify a plea agreement with Binance Holdings Ltd., a significant cryptocurrency exchange.

The exchange has acknowledged its failure to adhere to anti-money laundering (AML) regulations and sanctions violations, agreeing to a historic $4.3 billion fine. The prosecutors underline the intentional misconduct by Binance’s top executives, highlighting substantial risks to USA’s financial stability.

Furthermore, Changpeng Zhao, the ex-CEO of Binance, admitted guilt to anti-money laundering charges, potentially leading to a 10-year prison term, although a shorter sentence is anticipated.

With the imminent sentencing and the appointment of a new CEO, Richard Teng, Binance stands at a critical juncture. Teng must address the repercussions of the plea deal and focus on rebuilding trust with both customers and regulators.

How much are 1,10,100 BNBs worth today?

Despite the problems being faced by the exchange, the BNB token remained largely unaffected. At press time, it was trading at $357.56 and its price had grown by 1.38% in the last 24 hours.

The volume at which it was trading at also increased by 13.77% during this period.
