Pancakeswap - Top 1 of BSC: "Unicorns" on Binance Smart Chain



9 / 2020 Month, Binance launched Binance Smart Chain (BSC) to support smart contracts (smart contact). Then BNB's ecosystem also started with DEXs with extremely low gas fees.

The most prominent among decentralized exchanges is PancakeSwap with its rapid growth. At the same time, this is also one of the projects that Binance invested $ 350.000.

So what is PancakeSwap? What does it stand out?

Everyone, let's find out with Blogtienao!

What is PancakeSwap?

PancakeSwap is the leading liquidity provider on Binance Smart Chain launched on September 24, 9 with a TVL level of $ 2020 (in just 250.000.000 weeks from the time of launch).

Not to mention PancakeSwap also leads the swap volume, users, gas fees contribute to the BSC ecosystem.

In addition to decentralized exchanges that use the AMM model for BEP20 token swaps. PancakeSwap also applies the Gamification program that makes it unique compared to other competitors.

About Gamification, people can simply Pancake apply parts of the game to their model to motivate and delight users.

Furthermore the token will be used for more than just administration, swap and farming.

CAKE Token

Ticker CAKE
Blockchain Binance Smart Chain
Token Standard BEP20

CAKE Token is generated every 25 CAKE per block. 30000 blocks are generated per day, which means 750000 CAKE will be generated.

This generated amount will be distributed 60% to the farmers and the remaining 40% will go to Stake CAKE.

Although the number of daily CAKEs is born is quite a lot, but PancakeSwap has a mechanism to burn coins so the inflation rate will not be high so people do not worry that it will fall in price due to too much birth.

PancakeSwap uses a model AMM on BSC so you can trade BEP20 assets with each other.

However, it will not be like normal exchanges. You will not be able to place orders that you trade in a liquidity pool.

Liquidity will be provided by Liquidity Providers (“LPs”) exchange them with FLIP tokens that can be brought to farm to receive CAKE.

Transaction fee on PancakeSwap is 0.2%. This fee will be allocated 0.17% for LPs and 0.03% for PancakeSwap Treasury.

Personally, when the above transactions are fast, smooth and the fee is cheap. Because there are many farms, when swapping the main coins, the deviation is not much.

This swap is very suitable for those who hold coins on the wallet. Once in a while, the swap will remain in the wallet. You will not need to move to an exchange to sell and then withdraw your wallet.

Yield farming

Currently Pancake has 27 liquidity pools that allow you to send FLIP tokens to farm out CAKE. The reward per pool will depend on the number of depositors and the reward of that pool.

60% of the block rewards (15 CAKE) generated each day will be distributed to the farmers. The list of pools you can refer to by following the link below:

I have been farming the CAKE-BNB pool on PancakeSwap, as I see it, although the profit is not much, only about APY (average annual profit) 290% but compared to the general ground is also quite good because this farm is the safest in farms on BSC.

If the price of CAKE increases, the average return will increase. However, when the price of CAKE decreases, you will suffer a loss both in terms of the price of CAKE and BNB added to the pool for CAKE-BNB. To understand this part, I will explain in the section Add liquidity (add liquidity) Please.

Staking Pools

Staking Pools is a place that allows new projects to promote their projects to the PancakeSwap community by distributing a portion of the token to the CAKE holders.

The Staking Pools are divided into two parts:

  • Core: The project will be selected by the team of PancakeSwap.
  • Community: The project is voted by the community

note: Any project can distribute tokens on Staking Pools. However, the winning projects with new votes are listed at swap.

In addition to using CAKE to stake new tokens, you can also use CAKE to stake out CAKE with APY at the time of writing up to 320%.

The only risk when you join Staking Pools is the CAKE price drops. If the price of CAKE increases during staking, you will receive compound interest.

Lottery is a blockhash based lottery test, so you can rest assured there is no fraud. Lottery tickets are available with 10 CAKE with unlimited number of purchases.

When buying lottery tickets, people will get 4 random numbers. If your tickets match the results in the order, you will receive a proportional reward:

  • Win 4 numbers in order: divide 60% of the total.
  • Win 3 numbers in order: divide 20% of the total.
  • Win 2 numbers in order: divide 10% of the total.
  • Burn 10% of the total solution.

*Note: If there is only one winner, there is no need to divide. And if no one wins the 3-digit prize, 20% of the prize will be burned.

Winning tickets are determined in order based on the results. You can refer to the following example for better understanding.

The resulting example is "3-8-9-1".

  • "3-8-9-1" matches 4 numbers with 60% solution
  • "5-8-9-1" matches 3 numbers with 20% solution
  • "3-0-9-1" matches 3 numbers with 20% solution
  • "3-5-8-1" matches 2 numbers with 10% solution

In my opinion, this lottery game will help CAKE to be used more. The number of CAKEs burned in the Lottery will help this token avoid inflation and positively affect the price.

IFO (Initial Farm Offering) is a form of fundraising for the project with the CAKE-BNB LP token. After the exchange of LP tokens, BNB will be allocated to the project and CAKE will be burned.

That is, you use CAKE and BNB to add liquidity to CAKE-BNB LP token to buy tokens of the funded project. The BNB in ​​the LP will be given to the project and the CAKE will be burned.

This is a good product to help reduce CAKE inflation caused by farming and staking.

Upcoming products list:

  • Margin Trading: Trade BSC token with on-chain leverage - CAKE will be redeemed and burned periodically.
  • NFT Ecosystem: Mint, trade, breed, ... all will be paid by CAKE
