Binance has recently undergone another successful token sale, the third in 2019, as the Launchpad platform sold out Celer Network (CELR) tokens in just 17 minutes.
How does this relate to BNB price? Many users had bought up some Binance Coin beforehand, in the hope to take part in the token sale, which is accessible only via BNB. However, during the token sale event, the platform had experienced overwhelming demand and was unable to accommodate everybody who wanted to take part in the sale.
According to CZ, CEO of Binance, 39,003 Binance users attempted to take part in the sale with only 3,120 people being able to participate. This had left over 35,000 users holding their BNB they have bought before the sale.
It seems that those users that were left out of the sale have started to dump their Binance Coin’s which were intended to buy Celer Network tokens. This is evidenced by the 4.22% price drop over the past 24 hours. Despite the recent price drop, Binance Coin is still up by around 60% monthly gains.
