Overview BNB Coin:

Binance Coin (BNB) is a crypto-coin created by Binance in 2017, that is used to trade and pay fees on the Binance cryptocurrency exchange. This coin runs on the Ethereum blockchain with standard ERC 20.

Binance has capped the BNB supply at 200 million tokens. 100 million tokens were released to the public during the ICO, while 80 million were allocated to the founding team and 20 million to angel investors.
