Exploring the Future of Binance Coin (BNB)
Despite the recent decline in the overall crypto-market, Binance Coin (BNB) has recorded its highest transaction volume since February. According to Santiment, BNB’s transaction volume reached 1.24 million, a significant achievement considering the current market conditions.
Typically, a surge in transaction volume is accompanied by an increase in asset buying and can potentially lead to a rise in cryptocurrency prices. However, several factors influence this outcome, and it may not always be the case.
The ‘power’ behind BNB’s value
Binance Coin’s price has been able to decouple from the downward trend of Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) as its transaction volume and price have increased simultaneously. This indicates a potential rise in price momentum for BNB. However, the coin’s price growth remains subject to market volatility.
Despite a daily on-chain transaction volume in profit of 10,300 at press time, the metric soared to 1.1 million on 21 April. This hike suggests that the majority of coins passing through the BNB network were moving in profit, leading to a hike in the crypto’s Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) ratio.
A positive value for the MVRV ratio indicates that short-term holders have made unrealized profits. This metric can also indicate whether an asset is undervalued or overvalued. Currently, the seven-day MVRV ratio remains in the positive zone, implying sustained profits for short-term holders.
In between uncertainty and a chance
In markets like these, a quick retracement of the MVRV ratio may suggest that the asset is undervalued. However, the seven-day MVRV ratio has remained positive, and a drop into the danger zone would confirm an opportunity for short-term holders.
On the price charts, BNB seems to be recording high volatility, based on the Bollinger Bands (BB) indicators. However, the coin has exited the overbought zone, indicating significant buying momentum. The Directional Movement Index (DMI) shows consolidation, with the +DMI (green) at 24.77 and the -DMI (red) hovering near 18.24 at press time.
Furthermore, the Average Directional Index (ADX) has a reading of 22.74. When the ADX (yellow) hits or rises above 25, it suggests strong directional movement. Conversely, when it’s below 25, it indicates weak support.
