What is the PancakeSwap liquidity protocol?

PancakeSwap is a liquidity protocol operating on Binance Smart Chain (BSC), which has recently emerged as a cheaper and faster alternative to Ethereum.

PancakeSwap provides its customers with the ability to swap between digital currencies by tapping into user-generated liquidity pools. The protocol also offers DeFi farming solutions for liquidity providers, including functionality for customized liquidity pools.

Liquidity providers collect rewards in the protocol’s token, CAKE, which can also be staked in the Syrup pools. CAKE’s total value locked (TVL) was at $6.6 bln in late August 2021 and the market cap was $5.4 bln, according to CoinMarketCap.

If you want to try the service, you have to get a wallet. PancakeSwap is compatible with Trust Wallet, MathWallet, Binance Chain Wallet. In addition, MetaMask is also available. You just need to customize it in order to work with Binance Smart Chain.

Then, you need to buy some Binance coins (BNB) from the decentralized exchange Binance and send these assets to your storage. Then you will have to move the tokens to Binance Smart Chain to make them accessible on the PancakeSwap platform.

It has a convenient platform, and its tools and options are accessible on the left side of the screen. If you need to make a change, you need to visit the Trade section and pick up Exchange. Then select a pair of digital assets, and double-check all the details before you submit it.

For farms or liquidity pools, you have to spend an equal value of coins in a pair (for example, CAKE/BNB ) to get some LP tokens, which provide liquidity to the DEX and will bring rewards. This liquidity can be removed at any time and will be paid in the individual assets that were initially swapped for the LP coins.

The future of PancakeSwap

The BSC network is developing rapidly as traders and investors take advantage of its low fees and smooth transactions. Although PancakeSwap doesn’t have the same level of daily volume as DEXs based on Ethereum, it has a chance to grow and attract more users in the long run.
