Binance Coin was initially released in July 2017 during the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) and has a tight cap of 200 million BNB tokens. The funds raised during the ICO were intended to be used for marketing and development and upgrades to the Binance ecosystem.  

One-third of the cash received during the ICO process went toward building the Binance platform and making required improvements to the Binance ecosystem, while the remaining two-thirds were allocated to branding and marketing for Binance. Originally, Binance Coin was intended to be used as a utility token yet it has evolved and is now used as payment for transactional fees, entertainment, travel, and various online and financial services. 

There are more than 2920 crypto-tokens built on top of the Binance coin. It’s currently traded on 32+ exchanges. It has a circulating supply of 166.8 million BNB coins and is ranked #4. As of July 2022, the coin market cap is $40.2 billion. Each quarter, Binance purchases back their coin to burn it, which ensures it is totally eliminated from circulation. They will continue to do this until they have purchased and destroyed 100 million tokens, or half of their original maximum supply. This affects the value of the coin as it decreases the supply, making it rarer. 

After starting its business in 2017, Binance became become one of the industry's leading players. However, Binance encountered significant regulatory issues in 2021. Several nations, including the Cayman Islands, Japan, Malta, the Netherlands, Malaysia, the United Kingdom, and Thailand took regulatory action against Binance in 2021. Binance, for instance, was told to stop all U.K. regulated operations in June 2021 by the United Kingdom Financial Conduct Authority because it lacked the required registration, authorization, or license.
