  • Binance Smart Chain has successfully concluded the Bruno Upgrade v1.1.5 earlier today.
  • The upgrade has activated BEP95 to burn a fixed ratio of Binance Coin collected by each validator.
  • The Bruno Upgrade, was a hard fork that increased the speed of the full node sync by 60%. 
  • Analysts are bullish on BNB, predicting a 21.5% price rally if the altcoin breaks out of the resistance. 

Binance successfully concluded the Bruno upgrade v1.1.5 earlier today. The upgrade means a burn mechanism is now implemented to reduce the circulating supply of Binance Coin. 

BEP95 is now active burning 10% Binance Coin collected in fees per block

BEP95, the protocol that burns 10% of the fees collected by each validator, is now active on the Binance Smart Chain. According to Bscscan data, the current BNB burned per block is set at 0.02-0.06. The burn rate is determined by node voting and is currently set at 10%. 

BEP95 real-time #BNB burning mechanism has been activated!

Each block will burn a fixed ratio of the gas fee collected by the validators in each block. The burning ratio is adjustable through governance (currently 10%).

Based on the estimate, the daily burn volume is between 577 to 1728 BNB tokens. A reduction in the circulating supply of BNB would trigger a shortage of the altcoin, driving the price higher. 

The burn mechanism is similar to Ethereum Network’s EIP-1559. Since implementing the Ethereum Improvement Proposal in the London Hardfork, over 1 million ETH tokens have been burned. This has fueled a rally in Ethereum price. 

Proponents expect the Binance Coin price to explode in response to the burn implementation. 

The hard fork has boosted the speed of the full node sync by 60%. BNB price has posted 6% gains over the past week. Cryptocurrency analysts at the YouTube channel “Crypto TD” are bullish on BNB. Analysts have evaluated the BNB price trend in a recent video, and they believe:

It is quite likely that BNB would have convincingly broken out of the resistance towards the upside, and the next target for BNB would be the 1.618 Fib of the current consolidation…you will get an approximate target of $766.
