What is BNB used for in 2022?

Binance Exchange Most crypto exchanges charge trading fees based on a small percentage of total trade size. Binance was the first to offer discounts on these trading fees if they were paid in the native exchange token. The discount started at 50% for the first year getting reduced to 25% in the second, 12.5% in the third and finally 6.75% in the fourth before being eliminated entirely. These discounts are at the sole discretion of Binance and could be altered at any time.

Launchpad As a progression of the ICO, Binance first popularized the initial exchange offering (IEO) when they announced in January 2019 that they would be selling tokens directly through the exchange every month. Initially, the sales were done on a first come first serve basis. They since pivoted to a lottery system where users can claim tickets based on the number of BNB tokens held over the prior 20 days. The tickets represent a certain allocation of tokens and are drawn randomly. If selected, the user is committed to purchasing that number of tokens at the listed price.

Binance Chain BNB acts as the native token used as gas to pay for network transactions on Binance Chain, a high-performance blockchain network. It initially operates with a small pre-selected validator set, but the plan is to transition to a delegated proof-of-stake (DPoS) consensus mechanism where users can vote using their BNB for delegates that will validate blocks to secure the network. There is also a built-in governance module to let BNB holders submit proposals by depositing tokens which are then voted on.

When did BNB launch?

Binance pre-mined 200 million Binance Coins prior to the public sale. Binance Coin’s distribution process had three phases: allocation to founders, allocation to investors, and a public sale.

  • Founders received 80 million BNB (40% of supply) vested over four years. Half of the founders’ allocation was vested immediately. The other half is vested annually through 2021. From Q2 2019, these tokens will be burnt through quarterly burns and will thus remain illiquid until they are burnt. Binance plans to burn 100 million BNB (50% of supply) over time and has successfully executed nine coin burns to date.
  • Investors receive 20 million BNB (10% of supply) with no vesting or lock-up restrictions.
  • The public sale distributed 100 million BNB (50% of supply). Binance launched the ERC-20 Binance Coin in a public sale on July 14, 2017. Half of the funds raised through Binance’s coin offering were intended for Binance branding and marketing, and roughly one-third of the funds were for platform upgrades and development.

Binance executed the token swap from ERC-20 BNB tokens to Binance chain mainnet BNB coins on April 23, 2019. Binance Coins native to the Binance chain are called BEP2 BNB. Pre-selected validators produced blocks after the genesis block on April 18, 2019, and the first ERC-20 to BEP2 BNB swap of 5 million BNB was executed to a wallet belonging to Binance.

How did BNB come about?

Binance is a cryptocurrency exchange that launched in the summer of 2017 and swiftly grew to become one of the world's largest by trading volume, making a profit of $200 million in its second full quarter of operation. Binance Coin is an ERC-20 token that was issued as part of an initial coin offering (ICO) to be used for discounted trading costs, with a percentage of the tokens burned every quarter.

ERC-20 tokens were replaced by native tokens when Binance launched Binance Chain, its own public blockchain, in April 2019. The team constructed Binance DEX, a decentralized exchange that allows traders to keep custody of their cash, on top of Binance Chain. Over time, the token has gained additional functionality, such as use in the Binance Launchpad lottery system and different payments in the Binance ecosystem.

CEO Changpeng Zhao ("CZ") has also stated that 90% of Binance employees opt to earn a portion of their income in BNB.

BNB technology explained

Binance Coin was originally launched as an ERC-20 token on Ethereum until April 2019. Binance converted all ERC-20 BNB tokens to Binance chain BNB coins a couple days after the Binance chain mainnet launched. Two months earlier, Binance chain’s testnet launched and was used by the internal Binance team and some high-volume traders for testing.

Binance’s decentralized exchange (DEX) is built on the Binance blockchain using Tendermint and the Cosmos Software Developer Kit (SDK). Binance forked Cosmos to create the Binance blockchain, which currently does not support smart contract features. Binance aims to use the Tendermint consensus framework to solve some interoperability problems with inter-blockchain communication (IBC).

Binance chain source code is currently not open source for competitiveness reasons, according to Binance. But the exchange plans to open source the DEX and blockchain codebases when both products gain more adoption.

BNB supply curve details

Binance initially stated that it would used 20% of the quarterly profits generated by its exchange to buy back BNB on the market and burn them, thus reducing the outstanding supply. Nevertheless, in April 2019, Binance edited the white paper’s section devoted to quarterly repurchasing plans to replace it with a section on quarterly burn plans. In July 2019, Binance announced that it will burn the BNB tokens allocated to the Binance team going forward. As a result, the team allocation, that was initially supposed to be vesting for 4 years, will remain illiquid until all 80,000,000 BNB have been burnt. This reduces BNB's liquid supply, as these tokens are no longer liquid, but it also reduces the potential liquid supply inflation rate that would have occurred through the vesting of those tokens.

As of today, Binance has realized 15 quarterly token burns, leading to the destruction of 30,567,063 BNB:

  1. October 2017 - 986,000 BNB
  2. January 2018 - 1,821,586 BNB
  3. April 2018 - 2,220,314 BNB
  4. July 2018 - 2,528,767 BNB
  5. October 2018 - 1,643,986 BNB
  6. January 2019 - 1,623,818 BNB.
  7. April 2019 - 829,888 BNB
  8. July 2019 - 808,888 BNB
  9. October 2019 - 2,061,888 BNB
  10. January 2020 - 2,216,888 BNB
  11. March 2020 - 3,373,988 BNB
  12. June 2020 - 3,477,388 BNB
  13. September 2020 - 2,253,888 BNB
  14. December 2020 - 3,619,888 BNB
  15. March 2021 - 1,099,888 BNB

Binance will continue burning an amount of BNB equivalent to 20% of its quarterly profit until the outstanding supply (supply that exists on-chain) reaches 100,000,000 BNB.

What is BNB governance?

Currently, BNB is governed in a centralized manner with the Binance team having control over changes to the token economics and specifications of Binance Chain.

Who regulate BNB in 2022?

The token burn could be compared to a corporate share buyback where profits are used to purchase assets. This links the value of BNB to the efforts of a third party, which risks it being classified as a security based on U.S. regulations under the Howey Test. If it were classified as a security, it would make BNB an unregistered security and would prevent it from being traded in the U.S.
