What is PancakeSwap?

PancakeSwap is a decentralized exchange (DEX) that allows users to securely trade a massive variety of BEP-20 tokens quickly and cheaply without relying on centralized services or losing control over their private keys.

All trades on PancakeSwap are automatically executed via smart contracts — completely eliminating centralized intermediary risks.

PancakeSwap is classified as an AMM fork of Uniswap V2.

What is CAKE Token? 

CAKE is a BSC-native BEP-20 token. In September 2020, the PancakeSwap token (CAKE) was launched on Binance Smart Chain (BSC).

The CAKE token has performed extremely well in 2021, showing an incredible price spike throughout February. The primary function of CAKE is to incentivize liquidity provision to the PancakeSwap platform.

What is PancakeSwap's outstanding feature?

PancakeSwap leverages a number of its unique features to provide an excellent trading experience to end-users.

For one, it benefits from extremely low transaction fees and rapid confirmation time — ensuring trades are executed quickly. It also doesn’t generally suffer from displacement attacks like front-running, making it safer to use than some other AMMs.

Beyond this, PancakeSwap offers pyramid features to provide additional utility to CAKE holders. It could be worth your while to take the time to figure it out, though.

  • Trade: To offer liquidity, trade, and produce LP tokens.
  • Farming: Yield Farming with a massive amount of pools (the liquidity center of the BSC system).
  • Staking: Stake CAKE in a pool to obtain CAKE or other tokens in the BSC system.
  • Predictions: A method that forecasts the growth and fall of asset pairings over a certain time period.
  • Lottery: PancakeSwap's lottery game.
  • Collectibles: A massive collection of NFT goods.
  • Team Battle: A software that allows users to trade amongst groups and is rated based on trading volume.
  • IFO: Initial Farm Offering is the IDO Platform for new projects on the BSC system.

CAKE Token Allocation

However, the PancakeSwap team has structured the product in such a way that the number of CAKEs in circulation (active to produce value) is always more than the number of CAKEs minted; further information will be provided below.
