- Binance Coin price shows a slump in bullish momentum after a 15% upswing.
- A minor pullback to $520 or below could provide buyers an opportunity to refuel.
- The supply zone that ranges from $569 to $603 is the only thing keeping BNB from entering price discovery mode.
Binance Coin price shows a slowdown in its buying pressure as it pierces a crucial resistance barrier. Investors can expect BNB to retrace to immediate support levels before surging higher.
Binance Coin price may slide lower before hitting record levels
Binance Coin price shows signs of exhaustion as the Momentum Reversal Indicator (MRI) flashed a cycle top signal in the form of a red ‘one’ candlestick on the 6-hour chart. This setup forecasts a one-to-four candlestick correction.
If Binance Coin price produces a decisive close above this level, the discovery phase could allow market participants to propel it to the 162% Fibonacci extension level at $719.

Supporting this retracement and spike to recent highs is the 30-day MVRV model by Santiment, which tracks the average profit/loss of investors who purchased BNB over the past month.
Currently, the fundamental index is at 6.67%, but historical data reveals that a local top could occur around 21%. This indicates that Binance Coin price has room to grow.

Daily Active Addresses is a metric that can be used to determine the state of investors. A higher number indicates a bullish bias since more users are interacting with the BNB network and are interested in it at the current price levels.
At the time of writing, this indicator has declined 58% from 313,000 on 130,000 addresses between April 20 and April 27. This sudden slump paints a bearish picture, suggesting that investors are fleeing the network via reallocation of funds or profit-taking.

While a minor retracement seems likely, investors need to pay attention to the extent of the pullback. If Binance Coin price slides $472, it will invalidate the bullish scenario and might extend the correction up to $444.
Binance proposes a real-time token burning mechanism to boost BNB value
- Binance has proposed the BEP-95 aimed to burn a percentage of transaction fees as a deflationary measure.
- BEP-95 will occur alongside the quarterly token burn and well after the 100 million token supply is achieved.
Binance Smart Chain (BSC) is taking further steps to incorporate an additional deflationary mechanism to increase token valuation. As announced today, Binance (BNB) is introducing a new Binance Evolution Protocol (BEP) known as BEP-95. The BEP stands out from the network’s occasional token burns since it introduced a real-time burning mechanism.
According to Binance, a fixed portion of gas fees collected by validators in each block will be sent to the burn address. The ratio initially set at 10 percent, is adjustable according to changes proposed by the Binance community. BSC validators get to vote on community proposals, where voting power is based on staked BNB.
For a proposal to be reviewed by the validators, it has to receive a minimum deposit of 2,000 BNB (mainnet). All BNB is returned to holders after the finalization of the voting process. A proposal that wins is that which gathers 50 percent of the total voting power on the mainnet. Binance notes that voted-upon parameters are implemented immediately.
Details of Binance BEP-95 token burning mechanism
BEP-95 became relevant as it speeds up the BNB token burn, and makes the network increasingly decentralized. The BNB supply cap is about 168 million tokens and Binance intends to burn until 100 million tokens remain in circulation. This will take about 5-8 years to complete, according to Binance. The network’s most recent quarterly burn wiped out over 1 million tokens, worth about $639 million, from circulation.
However, the latest update from its blog now says the BEP-95 burn “will continue functioning” even after the above target is attained. With the burn, Binance expects the intrinsic value of the BNB token to increase in tandem with demand. The network notes that validators and delegators may receive fewer tokens from staking, but the “fiat-denominated value of their rewards may increase.” Moreover, BNB has multiple use cases that benefit all holders of the token.
Currently, BEP-95 is in the draft stage and the network is yet to give a specific date for its implementation.
Several blockchains use the crypto-burning mechanism to create token scarcity and a subsequent increase in token value. Ethereum, for instance, uses the EIP-1559 for this purpose.
BNB price action
BNB, the fourth-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, was trading at $494 at press time, according to our data. The token has gained 0.8 percent in the day, and 4.8 percent week-over-week. Similar to other digital assets, BNB has rallied fueled by the Bitcoin-led gains. Crypto investor and YouTuber Lark Davis expects “good things” for the BNB price following its launch of a $1B growth fund.
Binance Destroys $639 Million Worth of BNB
Binance’s burning a record $639 million worth of BNB has failed to push the price significantly higher
Leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance has announced the completion of its 17th quarterly burn.
The company destroyed more than 1.3 million BNB tokens that were cumulatively worth roughly $639 million.
This marks Binance’s biggest quarterly burn to date in dollar terms.
“Burning” is the process of shrinking the token’s circulating supply. Binance is on track to destroy 50% of all BNB tokens every quarter.
The number of tokens that are destroyed each quarter is calculated based on the trading volume on Binance’s crypto-to-crypto exchange.
As reported by U.Today, Binance burned $393 million worth of BNB in the second quarter and $595 million in the first quarter of 2021.
The BNB price added a meager 1.2% after the burn was announced before quickly trimming even such modest gains.
Last week, BNB recorded a double-digit price spike after announcing a $1 billion growth fund.

The RSI  couldn’t reach level-25, which therefore represents a bullish outlook for the BNB price.
A breakout above the $680 resistance could see the BNB price rising into four-figure price zones for the first time.
