BNB Chain adds new features to Greenfield
Artemis’ data revealed that BNB Chain’s daily active addresses were declining over the last 30 days. The same trend was also noted for the blockchain’s daily transactions.
BNB also took a blow in terms of captured value as its fees and revenue dropped. All these fundamentals suggest a decline in the blockchain’s usage over the past 30 days.
However, BNB Chain’s latest update could be a game changer. As per BNB Chain’s latest announcement, BNB Greenfield is undergoing a regular maintenance upgrade for the testnet version to v0.2.3 on 3 August.

Additionally, a new algorithm to get the secondary SP price is introduced to avoid unfair competition.
BNB’s price chart remains flat
While BNB prepared for this launch, the token’s price action remained pretty dormant. As per CoinMarketCap, BNB’s price only moved marginally last week. At press time, it was trading at $241.66 with a market capitalization of over $37 billion.
A look at its metrics gave an idea of what went wrong.

While its price struggled to move up, BNB’s funding rate remained green, causing its price to behave in a similar manner. Negative sentiment around the token also spiked quite a few times last week.
However, the good news was that, as per Coinglass, BNB’s Open Interest was declining. A drop in this metric usually suggests a trend reversal.
