The Binance (BNB) ecosystem has continued to grow against all odds fueled by heightened regulatory scrutiny in major jurisdictions led by the United States. After re-entering the Indian market following improved regulatory reforms, the Binance cryptocurrency exchange announced that it has reached 200 million globally registered users.

Consequently, the Binance ecosystem continues to stamp its web3 dominance, more so outside Western countries.

As Bitcoin price continues to struggle to rally above $72k, on-chain data shows heightened crypto cash rotation to the altcoin industry. Furthermore, the approval of spot Ether ETFs in Hong Kong and the United States is a clear indication of heightened demand from institutional investors. 

Binance native coin, BNB, price pumped over 200 percent since the beginning of the year to retest its all-time high (ATH) of around $700. However, the large cap-altcoin, with a fully diluted valuation of about $99 billion and a daily average traded volume of around $1.4 billion, has dropped 8 percent to hover around $643 on Monday.

The recent BNB price pump to a new ATH of around $717 coincided with the beginning of four months of imprisonment for the former Binance CEO Changepeng Zhao. Notably, Zhao is serving a short-term sentence in the United States for ignoring US money laundering rules on Binance since its inception. Already, Zhao and Binance were forced to pay a fine of about $4.3 billion to the United States government, in addition to other settlement deals. 

However, the US fight against Binance only made it shine more as the company is valued at more than $100 billion. With Binance executives receiving 80 million BNB at the initial coin offering, experts believe CZ is worth around $38.5 billion.
