Justin Sun is back with more bold affirmations. It seems that the founder and CEO of Tron is placing Binance Coin (BNB) on par with Bitcoin these days.
This comes right after BNB experienced a considerable rise in price.
BNB surged 141%
Back in January, BNB hit a low of $5.90, and since then it rose to $14.23 which is a 141% surge.
With this move, the coin managed to outperform the rest of the market.
After it began the year placed on the 31st position on CoinMarketCap, now BNB proudly takes the 8th position in terms of market cap.
Potential catalysts for the price surge
Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao (CZ) was recently live on Periscope, and he made sure to highlight the fact that it probably has more use cases than most other coins in the cryptosphere.
“There’s so many places you can use BNB. I will not iterate all of them. But you can use it to buy airplane tickets, hotels. You can use it for collateral for loans. You can buy many things with it. We focus on increasing the utility of BNB. This is why it’s tough to calculate the value using a formula,” CZ said.

He continued and stated “I think right now the BNB token probably has more use cases than most other coins out there. And we continue to build.”
He made the announcement on Twiter where people were both excited but also slammed the Binance DEX for being called a DEX when they believe it's not one.
