While the latest @coinbureau video about Elrond did have some merit, there is a lot of incorrect information relating to $eGLD. Let's look at the facts and get some clarity

See thread below
1.Huge number of $EGLD held by several wallets

Actually, the top 10 wallets are the Staking contracts, Exchange's wallets (Hot and cold) and also company reserves. Not some mega whales. Check out the graphic below

Binance's wallets hold >3M EGLD These belong to their customers
2. Erd is included in the current circulating supply.

ERC20 ERD token : 166M ERD, equal to 166K EGLD (about 0.95% of the current circulating supply)
- BEP2 ERD token : 127M ERD, equal to 127K EGLD (about 0.7% of the current circulating supply)
Most belongs to those that have yet to swap, as well as some exchanges who refused to swap ERD to EGLD like HitBTC.
Those that can withdraw and send tokens can still swap using the Elrond token bridge
3.BEP20 EGLD is included in the circulating supply.

600K EGLD are minted for BSC DeFi. You can swap and stake EGLD on PancakeSwap. You can find the information here

Binance Bridge
4. $EGLD Erc20 swap Bridge

There is a 2 way swap bridge to facilitate investors from BitGo, EToroX, and Coinbase Custody who at the moment use ERC20 version of EGLD tokens.
Low wallet balances.

Staking /delegating does not show in the wallet balance via explorer or the statistics. Users funds are in there. There are 2 Staking contracts, you can view them here with <\> explorer.elrond.com/accounts
6. Staking in Maiar.

You rightly corrected yourself in the comments. Staking is available and the minimum is 1 $eGLD, not 10. Find out more information here. maiar.com
7.Binance involvement.

Elrond launched on Binaace, they also were an early investor. Until very recently they were running 10 nodes on the network,but they unstaked to allow space for decentralized Staking providers and validators
We hope this has cleared a lot of misinformation up and now there is more clarity into everything. For the economics paper please be sure to check here elrond.com/blog/the-wealt…
If possible @coinbureau maybe you can make an updated version of your video to correct the information. We love your content but feel the community deserves the facts.
