BNB Responds To The Development
The news has been bullish on BNB so far. The Binance native cryptocurrency, BNB has risen up the charts following developments relating to its deposit allowance on the new platform. Over the last 24 hours, BNB was seen to have gained over 5%. This has pushed the price of BNB beyond its long-held $20 corner.
At the moment, the coin trades at $22.08 as various indications also point to delayed bull movement. BNB recorded a 24-hour trading volume of $351.93 Million with a market cap of $3.43 billion, sitting the coin at the 8th rank according to stats on CoinMarketCap.
