Binance Coin spikes nearly 13% after reopening, sets new ATH at $27

News has just broken that Binance has reopened its doors following the 7000 BTC hack and the market has reacted immediately. Interestingly, Bitcoin slipped by around $100 as Binance Coin surges nearly 13%.

Binance Coin slipped slightly following the news of the hack on May 8. BNB was trading at $21.82 before dropping to $19.89. The coin recovered quickly, however with its price returning to around $21.24 several hours after the news.

The week in which Binance was down, BNB remained fairly steady, trading in the region of $19 and $24. Now, with the news that Binance has officially opened its doors again, BNB saw an almost immediate spike from $23.62 to $25.70 and it's only kept going. BNB is currently up 12.42%, trading at $27.25 at the time of writing, according to figures from Binance.

BNB was already seeing some gains prior to the reopening. Once CZ announced trading had resumed, Binane Coin saw an unsurprising surge as traders are keen to cash in on Bitcoin’s recent price gains.

A similar sentiment was put forward by other traders:

And it appears as if the traders were correct:
