Hacking the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges Binance, not only provoked a flurry of discontent among members of the community, but also led to a drop in the value of the coin platform BNB (Binance Coin).
We will remind, in result of attack of hackers on the Internet were stolen more than 7000 bitcoins worth nearly $41 million Primary digital asset platform BNB began to fall almost immediately after the administration Binance posted a message confirming the attack and stealing money of users.
Coin BNB since the beginning of 2019 showed strong growth, peaking in April. The main drivers of growth in the value of the asset, we have launched a network exchange Binance Chain and the transition of many projects in the blockchain.
However, after a hacker attack, investors began to aggressively sell the coin trading platform due to concerns that hacking could happen again. In the last two days since the attack rate Binance Coin has fallen by almost 20%. On Friday, may 10, the coin fell in a few hours by 9% to $19.
The market capitalization of bitcoin has dipped to $2,868 billion, the result of BNB decreased to eighth in the ranking of the largest digital assets. Note that in early January, the BNB was trading at $6%, and by the end of April this token soared to $26 (+330%).
According to experts, the rapid increase in the cost of the asset once again proved his precarious position in the market, as only one of hacking has led to the depreciation of BNB. And is not excluded a variant at which cryptocurrency will fall to January level, if the pressure on the platform Binance will increase.
