Binance Statistics: The Exchange You Have to Know About

Binance is still the biggest crypto exchange in the world.

Binance’s daily volume is more than three times higher than that of Deepcoin, the following exchange on the list at the time of writing. Binance’s trading volume amounted to over $15.24 billion on August 18, 2022 when the data was obtained, while Deepcoin followed with $6.5 billion. CITEX, XT.COM, BitCoke came afterwards. When it comes to the Coinbase vs Binance volume comparison, Coinbase had over $2 billion in volume at the time of measurement, almost eight times less.

Binance burned 1,959,595.29 BNB in its latest quarterly burn.

Binance will burn a number of BNB coins every quarter until it removes 100 million BNB from circulation. During this third quarterly burn, Binance removed the $444,632,106 worth of BNB cryptocurrency from circulation. The intent behind reducing the supply of BNB coins is to make them more scarce and consequently more valuable.

BUSD exceeded $17 billion in market capitalization during the first half of 2022.

The USD-pegged stablecoin (100% by cash and cash equivalents) increased over 22% during the first half of the year. While this is good news for BUSD, Tether’s USDT dropped over 15% at the same time, showing the vulnerability of stablecoins. Still, Binance claims that stablecoins are still a significant category that can link everyday payments and other applications with cryptocurrencies, as well as push boundaries in the crypto world.

Binance’s revenue amounted to around $20 billion in 2021.

According to Bloomberg’s calculations, the company brought in an astounding $20 billion in revenue last year, mostly from transaction fees. One of the reasons the company amassed so much is late 2021’s crypto craze, which brought investor interest to a rarely seen high.

Binance’s CEO has a net worth of $18.5 billion.

With $18.5 billion, the founder and CEO of Binance Changpeng Zhao is the richest person in the crypto industry and the 80th richest person in the world. Even though the crypto market fell and his net worth also took a plunge from $108 billion to $18.5, this entrepreneur is still leading the industry.

Binance Labs has set aside $500 million for Web3 and Blockchain projects.

Binance’s trustworthiness and the high amount of protocols it’s running could position it as one of the key players in the world of Web3. It’s no surprise then that its investment branch decided to help bring about Web 3.0 and explore and expand potential uses of blockchain technology.

Binance US volume was estimated at $0.38 billion in August 2022.

While the trading volume on every exchange varies from one day to the next, on August 18, 2022, when the data was collected for various exchanges, Binance.US had about $380 million in daily volume. This placed it above Bybit and FTX with $0.31 billion in daily volume each.

BNB Chain Statistics

14 out of 25 most played NFT games use the Binance Smart Chain.

Games that allow users to purchase game items in the form of NFTs can rely on one or several different blockchains for this part of the in-game economy.

The other blockchains used by these NFT games include Ethereum, WAX, Polygon, and Harmony.

Binance’s chain has the second highest number of GameFi projects.

The first chain is none other than Ethereum, which held more than half of the GameFi market share in July 2021. However, during the year, new chains with new advantages started participating in this budding market. By June 2022, Ethereum’s GameFi market share had declined to about 35%, while Binance and other chains like Tron took over. Binance Smart Chain statistics show the chain has close to 31% market share in GameFi as of June 2022.

BNB Chain stats show it supports more than 400 protocols.

The number of protocols running on each chain can help illustrate the chain’s activity and development. The oldest DeFi chain, Ethereum, hosts over 500 protocols. BNB Chain comes in second place with over 400, while Avalanche supports about 225 protocols at the time. There are about 70 protocols on Solana and only nine on Tron.

Ending June 2022, BNB Smart Chain’s TVL dominance equaled 8.66%.

During 2021, BNB’s Smart Chain experienced incredible growth in TVL dominance, which is comparable to increasing market share in other industries. The chain started 2021 with 0.78% and ended the year with 7.02%. In fact, it has shown resilience and stability throughout the year and into 2022 when it grew further to 8.66% after absorbing TVL as a result of Terra’s crash.

Although there is a significant decrease in traffic, most traffic to Binance.com comes from Russia, with a share of 6.26% in August 2022.
