Binance’s native cryptocurrency, Binance coin (BNB) has surged up the charts by 6% within the past 24 hours. This price surge comes after Binance announces a collaboration with Airtm, a Mexico-based company, a company offering an e-wallet that is connected to over 300 bank and e-money systems in a P2P network.
According to stats on CoinMarketCap, BNB has gained over $1 against the USD, climbing the ladder by 9%.
