Malta-based cryptocurrency exchange, Binance, is almost always making its way into the crypto-spotlight with several developments in its ecosystem. Just yesterday, the Changpeng Zhao-led exchange launched its P2P trading functionality and enabled Bitcoin, Ether and USDT trading against the Chinese Yuan. This seemed to have spurred the price of the exchange’s native cryptocurrency, BNB, as it was soaring by more than 9%, pushing its price to $17. However, at the time of writing, the eighth largest coin by market cap was recording a 1.22% fall in its price and was valued at $17.21.
Similar to its price change, the short-term charts of BNB also indicated the presence of bears in the market.
