What is Binance coin (BNB)?

BNB was launched during an initial coin offering (ICO). The event took place 11 days before the creation of Binance Exchange for trading. Binance coin initially ran on the Ethereum blockchain with ERC-20 standard and has a strict maximum of 200 million BNB tokens.

 After a while, Binance coin was transferred to the Binance chain, and its total current supply is lower due to the burning events of a period called token burning, in which Binance destroys the BNB in its treasury. 

 Although Binance coin was initially based on the Ethereum network, ERC-20 tokens were later exchanged for BEP-2 tokens in a 1: 1 ratio.

  • BNB BEP-2 on Binance chain
  • BNB BEP-20 on Binance smart chain
  • BNB ERC-20 on Ethereum network
