However, Binance’s new announcement may improve sentiment towards Binance. Binance recently announced that it will be launching the ARKM token sale on Binance Launchpad.
Will hype around a new airdrop be enough?
The ARKM token is a native token for the Arkham Intelligence protocol, which is a tool that can be used for crypto analytics. Arkham recently launched the On-Chain Intelligence Exchange, a platform that facilitates the anonymous buying and selling of information regarding the owner of any blockchain wallet address.
The hype around the ARKM token and the new update may attract new users to both the protocol and the Binance exchange. The launch of the token may also aid in improving the sentiment around the Binance protocol.
At press time, the weighted sentiment around the Binance protocol was negative. This indicated that the negative comments outweighed the positive ones for Binance on the social front.
Additionally, the number of social mentions of Binance also declined. According to Lunar Crush’s data, the number of mentions for Binance fell by 10.7% over the last week.
Due to the declining sentiment, the overall trading volume on Binance fell. According to coingecko’s data, the daily volume on Binance fell from $11.14 billion to $7.44 billion over the last few days.
