PancakeSwap is a leading blockchain project in the decentralized finance (DeFi) industry. It is a platform built on the BNB Smart Chain that helps people to trade, earn, and win cryptocurrencies. The platform has also moved to the non-fungible token (NFT) industry, where it helps people buy and sell NFTs on the BNB Smart Chain.
PancakeSwap is similar to Uniswap, which was the pioneer in the industry. It allows people to swap tokens, provide liquidity, and farm for returns. In addition, PancakeSwap runs a trading competition and lottery where people buy tickets and win prizes.
Like other DeFi protocols, PancakeSwap has had a difficult time in the past few months as activities in the network dropped. The total value locked (TVL) in the ecosystem has dropped from an all-time high of over $7 billion in March 2021 to the current $3 billion.
