Coin burn in cryptocurrencies means sending some of the coins of native cryptocurrency or some other currency to a public address from which those particular coins can never be spent because the private keys of such an address are unobtainable.

Changpeng Zhao, Binance CEO shared his optimistic view of future BNB prices in the Binance blog

I acknowledge that BNB is still some distance away from its ATH last June, and I’m still mystified that that’s the case. But I don’t worry about it as much, because we view BNB as a long-term play, and many in the Binance community continue to use and hold BNB. We’ve kept our heads down and BUIDL our way during the crypto winter of 2018, when BNB sank from $24 at the start of the year to $5, and in various dips that come before and after it. Because it’s the same BUIDL philosophy that drove BNB to all-time-highs of $40 in 2019, making BNB the first coin to come out of the previous bear market in 2018 and the first coin to beat the previous ATH of $24. We will do the same and keep BUIDLing and keep launching new solutions and enhancements that our users want, said CZ.

BNB is currently trading at 17,7 USD, down 1.5% in 24 hours, ranking 9th on Coinmarketcap with a market cap of $ 2.76 billion.
