Binance has completed the Binance Coin mainnet swap, the exchange announced on Tuesday. $BNB has now moved from the Ethereum blockchain to the Binance Chain.

According to the statement of Binance, deposits and withdrawals are now open. For investors and traders its important to note that the $BNB deposit address has changed. Holders of Binance Coin can still send their ERC20 tokens to the new deposit address; Binance will convert it into BEP2 tokens automatically.

To let users convert their tokens, a batch of 5 million $BNB has been stored into a Binance address. Following the conversion to BEP2 tokens, old ERC20 tokens are burned, guaranteeing constant supply across both networks. Trading will have to wait for the first batch of BNB to be converted in order to provide enough liquidity.

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao announced just before the completion of the Mainnet Swap that 5 million $BNB ERC20 tokens are now burned.
