Binance Coin (BNB) has posted massive gains this year. Starting with the price of about $37.7 on January 1, the token grew to an all-time high of $637.44 on April 12, per Coin Market Cap data. It now ranks third among cryptocurrencies, with a market cap of over $79.6 billion. The token is now down over 6% from yesterday, trading at about $514 at the time of writing.
Analyst Nicholas Merten attributes the BNB rally to the delay in the Ethereum upgrade that made some traders migrate to Binance Smart Chain for altcoin trading.
