In a recent announcement by Binance, the BNB Foundation declared the successful completion of the 26th quarterly Binance Coin token burn through the BNB Chain. The burn, which included Auto-Burn and the Pioneer Burn Program, eliminated a significant amount of the exchange’s native token from circulation. 

BEP95 Initiative Results In 210K BNB Permanently Burned

During this latest burn event, the Auto-Burn process removed 2,141,487.27 BNB from circulation, equivalent to approximately $636 million in USD. 

It is worth noting that the Auto-Burn mechanism operates independently of Binance’s centralized exchange (CEX), providing an auditable and objective process, according to the exchange’s statement. 

Additionally, the Pioneer Burn Program contributed by removing 1542.15 tokens from circulation. This program permanently eliminates an amount of BNB equal to the provable lost funds of eligible users. 

Since the introduction of BEP95, an estimated 210,000 tokens have been permanently burned under this mechanism. As announced, the Pioneer Burn Program helps maintain the integrity of the ecosystem and ensures that lost funds do not influence the circulating supply.

Furthermore, BNB Chain’s Real-Time-Burn mechanism continuously reduces the token supply. This mechanism enables burning a portion of BNB Chain’s gas fees in real-time, further contributing to the ongoing supply reduction efforts.

Completing the 26th quarterly BNB token burn marks another significant milestone for the BNB ecosystem. The independent Auto-Burn mechanism, combined with the Pioneer Burn Program and Real-Time-Burn mechanism, showcases BNB Chain’s approach to reducing token supply and fostering long-term value. 

Robust User Adoption
