Binance destroys $760 million worth of its tokens

The cryptocurrency exchange proceeded with one more burning of its own tokens. The program will be terminated when a total of 100 million BNB is burned.

As reported on the Binance website the company announced the completion of its 19th quarterly BNB token burn. A total of 1.8 million BNBs worth $756 million (as of April 19) were destroyed. The Auto-Burn mechanism allowed for the withdrawal of the altcoin from circulation.

Binance announced the launch of the system in December 2021. Previously, the company used 20% of its profits to redeem and burn BNB. Currently, the network has an automatic token burning mechanism.

The algorithm is based solely on the Binance Coin price and the number of blocks mined per quarter. The higher the value of BNB, the fewer tokens will be removed from circulation. The program will be terminated when a total of 100 million Binance Coins are burned.
