Although other digital currencies have declined in trading volume, BNB still brought the joy to the investors as it remains the liquidity at $94,754 in the 24-hour trading cycle. It was the only token in the top 20 achieved such high growth.

With a daily trading volume of $1,187,801,798, BNB can easily gain a high market share in the cryptocurrencies market.
