World’s leading crypto exchange, Binance, recorded the highest quarterly volume evident by the amount of coin burn for Q1 2020. According to the original Whitepaper, every quarter, it burns 20% of its profits. The estimates suggest a profit higher than $262.33 million in the Q1 of 2020.

Update: According to sources, Binance has changed the metrics for burn last year from 20% profits to burning tokens w.r.t. trading volume. Hence, the burn metrics indicate that volumes are record high since BNB release. The title has been changed accordingly as well. 

At the 11th quarterly BNB Burn, Binance burned 3,373,988 BNB, worth 52.4 million USD, at the present rate of $15.55 per token. The Exchange notes,

This is the biggest BNB burn ever recorded, in terms of both BNB and fiat volume.

The previous high was recorded in the last quarter of 2019 with profits’ totalling $190.

In accordance with the previous metrics, the cumulative profits crossed the $1 billion mark after its 9th ‘coin burn’ in Q3 of 2019. It seems to have added 452.33 million as the total exchange profit now reaches $1.487 billion.

Apart from leading the crypto-space in spot markets, the exchange has now gained adequate dominance in the derivatives market as well. While trading volume is an ambiguous metric, the profits from the derivatives market should also add to the total.

Furthermore, Binance recently launched options trading on the exchange which will help in the growth of the business.
