As of this writing, the native token of Binance, BNB, is trading for $352, up 32% from November 2022, when the unstable cryptocurrency exchange FTX filed for bankruptcy, sending shockwaves through the cryptocurrency exchange community.

Furthermore, BNB is currently trading at a higher level than it did in June 2023, the month that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that it was conducting an investigation into the exchange and that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) had filed a lawsuit. The SEC lawsuit is still pending, but the exchange has since reached a $4.3 billion settlement with the DOJ.

Users can benefit from advantageous trading conditions on exchanges by using exchange tokens, which are issued by centralized entities. Moreover, they can be utilized on blockchains built by centralized exchanges to conduct decentralized finance and pay gas fees. Users that possess certain exchange tokens can also take part in platform governance functions.

In the meantime, the native token of the OKX exchange, OKB, has increased by 132% from its FTX lows and has gained 3,227% overall since its launch in May 2019. The OKB token experienced a tremendous flash crash on January 25 that lost almost $6.5 billion in a matter of minutes before it completely recovered and hit new all-time highs. The flash crash was brought on by a brief sell-off in the market that day, which resulted in several leveraged liquidations in margin trading, cross-currency transactions, and pledged lending on the OKX platform. Since then, the exchange has given impacted users airdrop compensation.


Similarly, the BGB token on the Bitget exchange has risen to record highs of $1.03, representing a 159% annual gain. The exchange promised to donate a $100 million fund, called “EmpowerX,” to blockchain, artificial intelligence, and Web3 projects last September. At the time, Bitget’s managing director, Gracy Chen, stated that as regulations change and the centralized exchange landscape changes, the company anticipates more investments, mergers, and acquisitions in the upcoming months.

Not surprisingly, the value of FTX’s FTT token has dropped by more than 90% from its pre-bankruptcy highs. The exchange itself will not reopen, despite its expectation that consumers will receive their full refund, less bankruptcy costs.

According to bankruptcy attorney Andy Dietderich, “neither an investor nor a buyer has emerged for that exchange as a going concern” is prepared to commit the necessary funds to a restart of the offshore exchange. “It was just too expensive and risky to try to make a workable exchange out of what Mr. Bankman-Fried had left in the dumpster.”

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.

Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.
