Binance’s voices are believed to have provided user funds that are stored on its staking platform.

The head of the BeatzCoin project (now in third place on the list) Misha Lederman noted that the exchange froze of the total volume of TRX in circulation. In his opinion, such a reduction in the supply of coins in the market will strengthen their price.

At the same time, Lederman drew attention to the fact that this Binance move violates the established system of voting in the network. The exchange received 59.2% of the vote, the next in the list of block producer, Sesameseed, only 2.57%, BeatzCoin 2.27%.

At the time of writing, the price of TRX increased by 8.8% per day (according to CoinMarketCap) the largest indicator among leading digital assets.
