Cryptocurrency trade Binance carried out its first-ever binance token (BNB) auto-burn program final quarter, eradicating over 1.6 million BNB tokens value $750 million from circulation.

Under the brand new program, the variety of tokens to be burned is arrived at utilizing a formulation primarily based on the whole variety of blocks produced on the Binance Smart Chain, a programmable blockchain powering good contracts and working parallel to Binance Chain, and BNB’s common dollar-denominated value in the course of the quarter.

The transfer away from the earlier token burn methodology, which was primarily based on income generated from the Binance centralized trade, is predicted to make the method extra goal and clear to the BNB neighborhood.

“The implementation of the BNB auto-burn is a natural next step in BNB’s journey and will help the BNB community grow through providing greater autonomy, transparency, and predictability,” Changpeng Zhao (CZ), co-founder and CEO of Binance, said in an official announcement printed on Binance weblog.

Binance is dedicated to destroying 100 million BNB tokens, amounting to 50% of the circulating provide, via quarterly burns. According to data source Coin Tools, the exchange has destroyed nearly 35 million tokens via quarterly burns to date, having begun the program in late 2017.

Token burns are supposedly deflationary and usually meant to bring a store of value appeal to the cryptocurrency. In traditional finance, deflation means a consistent price decline. In crypto, a deflationary token is the one whose circulating supply will decrease over time, thus making it inflation-resistant or store of value asset.

“BNB is deflationary,” Zhao tweeted early Tuesday along with the BNB burn news.

However, the 18th burn, the first-ever automated event, announced on Monday, has failed to put a bid under the cryptocurrency. At press time, BNB was trading flat on the day near $474, having dropped over 4% on Monday.
