Binance Drops Bitcoin NFT Support Due to 'Streamlining' Offerings

NFT trading volume has reached its lowest point in multiple years. In December, Bitcoin non-fungible tokens had a widespread impact on network congestion. People that utilize Binance will not be able to participate in any future Bitcoin NFT airdrops.
