Over 1.6M BNB Removed In Binance’s First Quarterly Auto-Burn

Summary:
Binance – the world’s largest crypto exchange – recently completed its 18th quarterly burn, marking its first quarterly auto-burn. The burn removed greater dollar-denominated value from the network than ever before. According to a blog post from Binance, the burn removed 1,684,387.11 BNB. At the time of writing, that’s 8,887,962 worth of tokens. 6296 of those tokens were ‘effectively’ burned through the Binance Pioneer Burn program, which counts BNB mistakenly sent to dead wallets. As the first auto-burn, this burn was not manually conducted through Binance exchange’s revenue generation. Rather, BNB was collected for removal through Binance Smart Chain’s auto-burn mechanism. The auto-burn mechanism automatically determines how much BNB to burn according to a formula
