BNB, otherwise referred to as ‘Binance Coin’ is the native utility token of the Binance exchange, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world. Since its inception in 2017, Binance become one the largest brands in the blockchain industry. Aside from being the largest crypto exchange, it has launched an entire ecosystem of crypto-related functionalities.
Binance coin is an integral component of this ecosystem. Initially, BNB started out as an ERC-20 token as it was built on the Ethereum network. However, after the launch of Binance Chain mainnet in April 2019, the BNB tokens were swapped from ERC-20 to BEP-2 tokens and hosted on the Binance Chain instead. Running parallel to the Binance Chain is the Binance Smart Chain (BSC), an EVM-compatible network that relies on a new consensus mechanism called Parlia. Parlia is a Proof-of-Staked Authority (PoSA) consensus that has elements of both Proof-of-Stake (PoS) and Proof-of-Authority (PoA).
BNB is one of the largest cryptocurrencies in the world by market cap. You can buy BNB on the Swyftx cryptocurrency exchange. Swyftx offers users a safe, secure, and easy-to-use platform to buy and sell BNB and a number of other cryptocurrencies.
BNB is used for a variety of different network functions, including delegated staking on the authority validator, trading fee discounts, and participating on the Binance Launchpad. The total BNB supply is capped at 200 million, with an implemented burn mechanism that reduces the supply approximately every three months until it reaches 100 million.
BNB is primarily used to pay for gas fees on the Binance Smart Chain. This is similar to how ETH is used on the Ethereum network. However, many people who buy BNB choose to hold it with the expectation that the price will increase in the future. Another use for Binance coin to provide liquidity on a decentralised exchange.
