Huge Drop in User Activity
Despite the rise in the unique addresses, the user activity on the chain depleted notably. Recently, the Binance exchange has come under the radar as Mazar raised doubts over the published Proof-of-Reserve. This created a huge FUD causing over $5 billion in withdrawal from the platform. Despite the exchange managing to withstand the turbulence, the user activity dropped, adversely impacting the BNB price.
According to ycharts data, the number of transactions on Binance Chain has plummeted to the lowest levels of the month in the last few days. The levels recorded 877556 transactions on 21 December 2022 which witnessed a slight uptick to 952778, the next day. Despite a minor upswing, the levels continue to remain close to the bottom which could be the core of the concern for the platform as it may impact the BNB price adversely.
Binance Coin (BNB) Price Remains Consolidated
Biannce Coin raised significantly high in the first few days of December 2022 but very soon fell into deep bearish captivity. The price was lowered heavily by slashing nearly 30% to mark the levels it traded during the July consolidation. With a huge price plunge, it may be quite difficult for the token to attempt a bullish close for the year 2022.
The bears are currently restricting the price at $250 for the past few days and hence these levels have now become pivotal to keeping up the bullish trend ahead. Meanwhile, the volume has been slashed, which may further impact the progress of the rally ahead. However, the BNB price is believed to maintain a descending consolidation until it reaches the bottom and rises high with a slight change in the market sentiments.
