As the future of BNB hangs in the balance, the analyst wonders what steps Binance could take to enable its native asset to recover.
US SEC Case Weighs Heavily on BNB Price
Following the announcement of the SEC’s case against Binance on June 5, BNB’s price went into a tailspin, shedding more than 30% of its value over the past year. The central entity behind the BNB token and BNB Chain development, Binance, is accused by the SEC of controlling and benefiting from unregistered security.
The digital asset exchange, led by Changpeng Zhao (CZ), a self-proclaimed “holder of BNB and BTC,” has seen the price of BNB adversely affected by the negative news and the broader market crash. BNB, currently trading at $210.0, is sitting in the fourth position by market cap with $32 billion, per CoinMarketCap, registering 13% losses in the last week and 14% in the past 30 days.
Customer Concerns Over Binance’s Service Disruptions
Adding to Binance’s woes, several users have recently reported on X (formerly known as Twitter) that they could not withdraw or deposit euros (EUR) from and to the cryptocurrency exchange platform. Binance’s customer support responded that the direct bank transfer for EUR was under maintenance and temporarily suspended.

However, no timeline was provided for when this service would be restored. As an alternative, the support account advised users to use card deposits or withdrawals or explore other options such as credit card purchases or the peer-to-peer (P2P) platform.
Binance has not released official updates or statements, and the BNB token continues trading at yearly lows. The concerns regarding Binance’s financial health and the regulatory headwinds are placing additional pressure on the digital asset exchange and its native coin.
