PancakeSwap is a decentralised exchange focusing on BEP20 tokens—as developed by Binance. It allows users to exchange cryptocurrencies and tokens without requiring any intermediary services, and is native to the BNB blockchain network, running on Binance Smart Chain.
Decentralised exchanges implement Automated Market Maker (AMM) systems, ensuring no single entity is required for trades to proceed. They operate independent of order matching systems, with liquidity pools being traded against, rather than counterparties.
Such systems allow for buyers and sellers to trade without having to wait to be matched. The liquidity pool—a fund deposited by investors across the globe—allows for traders to deposit and withdraw from the pool using tokens, instead of having to undergo an overseen transaction or trade. PancakeSwap is one of the largest of these exchanges; an alternative to Uniswap that runs on the more established Ethereum coin.
As well as offering all the capabilities of traditional cryptocurrency platforms—such as swapping, trading, yield farming, staking, etc—PancakeSwap offers a variety of other features: PancakeSwap lottery, Syrup Pools, Yield Farms, and NFT collectibles, among others.
Within the PancakeSwap ecosystem, CAKE is the token powering all transactions. Users may purchase CAKE on the exchange, earn it from Farms and Syrup Pools, or win it in the PancakeSwap Lottery. CAKE is used for trading, farming, and staking, as well as voting on governance. It’s the third-largest cryptocurrency on the market, worth roughly four and a half billion USD.
