At press time, BNB is trading at 0.002619 BTC ($9.60) but previously reached 0.002688 at 10:00 UTC Monday – the cryptocurrency’s highest price in its entire one and half year history, according to data from Binance.
At the same time, BNB still has a ways to go before approaching it’s all-time high in USD value. Current figures represent a decline of 58 percent from BNB’s USD high of $22.48 achieved on Jan. 12, 2018, data from OnchainFX further reveals.
BNB’s BTC-tied high came after a period of strong performance that played out over the past several weeks.
As can be seen in the table below, BNB has significantly outperformed the market leader and world’s largest cryptocurrency bitcoin over the past 90-days, including a 35 percent increase in the past seven days alone when bitcoin rose just 5 percent.
While BNB may be the only well-known cryptocurrency to hit a new record of sorts, it has not been the best performer.
Data from OnchainFX reveals three cryptocurrencies have outshined BNB in the past seven days including ARK, Dentacoin, and Theta Token who have printed gains of 35 percent, 43 percent and 43 percent, respectively, against the US dollar.
