The conclusion to both the version is that the exchange will be eventually be destroying 100 million of BNB and hence leaving the other 100 million BNB.

The previous version of Binance white paper was captured on Wayback Machine on 8th of Feb while the newest version appeared on 13th of March.

The description in the website remained the same which stated that 20 percent of the profit will still be burned as per the process described by the White paper. Says Binance spokesperson to a crypto news outlet The Block Crypto.

So as to address this change, Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao confirmed the news and said that the exchange does not repurchase any of the BNB but simply reducing the supply by burning the BNB tokens.

CZ further added:

“We recently updated our whitepaper to better describe how we actually conduct the burn. For example, we removed the buy back reference because we actually don’t repurchase BNB and simply reduce the supply by burning BNB. We also removed the profit language because some regions tend to associate profits with securities, and we would like to distance BNB from that. So going forward, we plan to describe the burn this way, and burn what we burn.”

Yesterday Bitcoinik reported that Binance launched the mainnet for selected partners and the BNB tokens are swap to the main blockchain on 23 April. Binance will no longer support the ERC-20 BNB tokens deposits and withdrawals.
