What You Need to Know About BNB Burns
BNB, the native asset for various Binance Blockchains including BNB Chain ecosystem, BNB Beacon Chain, BNB Smart Chain, opBNB L2s, and BNB Greenfield Blockchains, also acts as a governance token. This means BNB holders have the opportunity to actively participate in projects developed on these Blockchains.
When BNB was introduced in 2017, it was announced that half of the total supply, which is 100 million BNB tokens, would be burned through a systematic process. The objective is to maintain only 100 million BNB tokens in circulation, a goal achieved through quarterly burns. This commitment is automatically fulfilled each quarter, with the number of BNB tokens to be burned calculated using an automated burning mechanism formula.
BNB’s automated burning process offers a transparent and objective mechanism that can be independently audited. These figures are reported every three months, and it is important to note that the burning mechanism operates independently of Binance. Moreover, BNB Chain continues to burn a portion of the gas fees in real-time, employing its real-time burning mechanism.
