Binance Chain Revenue Surges by 70%: Can It Boost BNB's Value?

BNB Network Sees Revenue Growth Despite Regulatory Scrutiny

The BNB network has demonstrated impressive growth in the first quarter of 2024, despite facing challenges from regulatory scrutiny. Here’s a look at how the network has performed and what it means for BNB token holders.

Revenue Surges in Q1 2024

In Q1 2024, the Binance Smart Chain [BNB] network reported a significant increase in revenue, totaling $66.8 million. This marks a substantial 70% rise compared to the previous quarter’s revenue of $39.2 million. This surge outperformed any quarter in 2023 in terms of revenue generation.

The increase in revenue was primarily driven by the appreciation in the value of BNB. Gas fees from DeFi transactions remained the primary source of revenue, contributing 76,200 BNB, a 1.7% increase from the previous quarter.

Stablecoins Drive Growth

DeFi transactions accounted for 46% of total revenue. Notably, stablecoins experienced the largest quarter-over-quarter (QoQ) revenue growth, climbing from 19,500 to 25,100 BNB, a 29% increase.

Mixed Results Across Different Sectors

While the overall revenue for the BNB network grew, not all sectors experienced the same success. The Gaming and Infrastructure categories saw significant declines in revenue. However, other metrics, like average daily transactions, revealed mixed results:

  • Average daily transactions decreased by 9% from Q4 2023.
  • Average daily active addresses increased significantly by 26%, from 1.0 million to 1.3 million.

Noteworthy Protocol Activity

Several protocols on the BNB Smart Chain experienced upticks in average daily transactions. USDT emerged as one of the stablecoins with 619,300 daily transactions, up 22% from the previous quarter. It nearly doubled the transactions of the second-ranking protocol, PancakeSwap, which averaged 345,200 daily transactions, up by 4%.

Together, USDT and PancakeSwap accounted for 74% of all protocol transactions, a 10% increase from the previous quarter. Overall, daily average transactions involving protocols increased by 5%, rising from 1.2 million to 1.3 million.

Bearish Sentiment on BNB Token

Despite the strong performance of the BNB network, sentiment around the BNB token has been growing increasingly bearish. As of press time, BNB was trading at $607.05, experiencing a 1.41% decline in the last 24 hours. Additionally, the trading volume fell by 9% during the same period.

The percentage of short positions around BNB had grown to 52%, indicating that a majority of traders were expecting further price declines. It remains to be seen whether this bearish sentiment will continue or if BNB will rebound.
