What is Binance Coin?
Binance Coin (BNB) is the main asset of value for the Binance ecosystem, and it was launched by the exchange in 2017. Before the initial launch of Binance mainnet, BNB coins represented ERC-20 token hosted on the Ethereum network. After the mainnet launch, BNB coins could be swapped for BEP2 BNB using an exchange ratio of 1:1. The mainnet was launched two years after the initial BNB token launch, in April of 2019.

The main purpose of the coin is to act as a payment method for different types of transactions and purchases, as well as cover trading fees on the Binance Exchange. The Binance Exchange has a repurchase plan, using 20% of its profits to buy out BNB coins. The plan involves buying 100 million BNB coins, out of a total supply of 200 million units. The exchange burns—that is, destroys—the repurchased BNB units to reduce the total supply.

Binance performs quarterly coin burns. Once the coins are burnt and destroyed, the crypto units can’t be retrieved. Burning transactions are permanently recorded on the blockchain and are transparent and irreversible.
