- Binance has recently removed 1.68 million BNB tokens during its quarterly burn.
- Unlike the previous quarters, the exchange has introduced a new system of destroying tokens from circulation.
- Binance Coin price may be headed for a bullish reversal as a key technical indicator flashed a bottom signal.
Leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance recently burned over 1.68 million of its BNB tokens worth approximately $800 million. The trading platform carried out its 18th burn and completed the first quarterly BNB Auto-Burn.
Binance introduces BNB Auto-Burn
Previous quarterly burns were based on the tokens’ usage and revenue generated on the exchange. During the last quarterly burn, Binance removed 1.34 million BNB in circulation. Other burns ranged from 808,000 BNB to 3.6 million BNB burned.
Following the community’s feedback, the BNB Auto-Burn was introduced to allow for a more objective process independent of the centralized ecosystem.
The burning system calculates how many tokens to remove from circulation based on the price of BNB, which reflects on demand and the number of blocks produced in the quarter.
Coin burning processes are usually used to reduce the supply of tokens in circulation to raise the demand for the coins in circulation, keeping prices reasonably high.
Binance Coin price prepares to bounce back
Binance Coin price has formed an ascending parallel channel on the daily chart, suggesting an overall bullish outlook for BNB.
The Momentum Reversal Indicator (MRI) has recently flashed a bottom signal as BNB reached the lower boundary of the governing technical pattern, suggesting that Binance Coin price is preparing for a rebound.
The first line of resistance for BNB may appear at the 21-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) at $487, then at the 50-day SMA at $530, coinciding with the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level and the 100-day SMA.
BNB/USDT daily chart
A spike in buy orders may incentivize the bulls to target the middle boundary of the prevailing chart pattern at $588, which intersects with the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level.
However, an increase in selling pressure may see Binance Coin price slide toward the 200-day SMA at $450, which sits near the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level.
