What is Wrapped BNB?

Binance Coin or BNB is the native cryptocurrency of the Binance exchange. The Binance exchange is one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. Binance Coin was initially built as an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain and was used by traders to access discounted trading fees on the exchange.

After the development of the native Binance Chain (BC) in 2019, BNB was also used to pay transaction fees on the blockchain network. The cryptocurrency exchange continued to grow and now BNB can also be used for online and financial services, travel bookings and even entertainment.

Following the success of the BC, the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) blockchain was launched in 2020. The BSC is aimed at smart contract functionality for decentralized application development. The token standard on the BSC is BEP20, which BNB does not conform with. Therefore, wrapped BNB (wBNB) was created as a token compatible with the Binance Smart Chain but that remains pegged to BNB at a ratio of 1:1. wBNB can be used on many dapps within the Binance Smart Chain ecosystem.

Wrapped BNB (WBNB) is in the top 1,000 cryptocurrencies in the world by market cap. The current price of Wrapped BNB is $452.03, which is -7.597% lower than yesterday. Prices have ranged between $489.2 and $449.75 over the past 24 hours. All prices are listed in US dollars and accurate as of October 27, 2021 12:10 UTC.

What to consider when buying Wrapped BNB

Before buying a wrapped token such as wBNB, it’s important to consider its use cases and the risks involved. Here's what to consider before purchasing wBNB:
  • Price: wBNB is designed to track the price of BNB tokens at a rate of 1:1. It’s important to remember that wBNB will be subject to the same level of price volatility as the Binance Coin.
  • wBNB vs BNB: There are pros and cons to buying wrapped tokens. A user may get more use out of a wrapped token, but it could come at the cost of losing the security of the original.
  • BNB tokenomics: As the price of wBNB is dependent on the price of the underlying asset, it's important to understand the tokenomics of BNB. Binance implements a deflationary quarterly burn of BNB coins to permanently reduce supply and increase value. The amount of BNB burned is based on Binance’s overall quarterly trading volume. Starting with an initial circulating supply of 200 million tokens, quarterly burns are set to continue until the total reduces to 100 million. To date, 30 million tokens have been destroyed.

Disclaimer: Cryptocurrencies, including Wrapped BNB, are speculative, complex and involve significant risks – they are highly volatile and sensitive to secondary activity. Performance is unpredictable and past performance of WBNB is no guarantee of future performance. Consider your own circumstances, and obtain your own advice, before relying on this information. You should also verify the nature of any product or service (including its legal status and relevant regulatory requirements) and consult the relevant Regulators' websites before making any decision.
