Binance Coin Topples USDT to Become the Number Three Crypto After a 300% Price Surge

The Binance token has toppled the stablecoin Tether to become the third-largest crypto asset by market capitalization. After starting the month of February a little under $50, the token had raced past the $250 mark on February 19. At the time of writing the token is fluctuating around its all-time high (ATH) and stood at $262.

At this price, BNB’s market capitalization currently stands at over $38 billion. This is nearly $4 billion more than that of Tether. Meanwhile, before the February price breakout, the token had experienced a gradual rise alongside other exchange assets. However, since the beginning of February, the token has seen two significant price breakouts.

In its first significant rally, the token raced from a little under $50 on February 1 to $147 by February 10, representing a jump of nearly 200%. After a seven day lull, the token recommenced the rally on February 16 and at the time of writing, the token had doubled in value in just 72 hours.

In the meantime, the BNB token’s performance is also mirrored by other exchange assets. According to Messari data, a majority of the top ten exchange assets have doubled in value in the past seven days. In the past 24 hours, only four top ten exchange assets were in the red and these are namely, UNI, SUSHI, ZRX and LRC.
