Moreover, the crypto exchange noted that around 5 thousand BNB tokens were burned through Pioneer Burn Program. The latter-mentioned program is designed for users who accidentally transferred their tokens to the burn address. With the help of the programs, users can receive a part of their lost funds back.
The BNB auto-burning initiative was introduced in the last quarter of 2021. In its 21st BNB burn announcement, Binance noted that the company is committed to removing 100 million or, if not possible, half of the total supply through its burning process. The number of removed tokens is calculated each quarter based on the Auto-Burn formula.
The company highlighted that the BNB Auto-Burn process is an independent, auditable, and objective procedure, separate from Binance centralized exchange.
It is reported that the 21st quarterly BNB burn is one of the biggest in history, considering the fiat value of burned tokens. The record-breaking BNB burn was performed in 2021. At that time, burned token value in fiat was around $600 million.
At the time of writing, BNB retails for around $275. During the last 24 hours, the token's price increased by almost 2%.
