Written By Ivan on Tech

Feb 21, 2021

PancakeSwap has seen a lot of interest in recent weeks. Essentially a clone of Uniswap, PancakeSwap provides a very similar user experience to Uniswap. However, with rising Ethereum transaction fees and network congestion, a serious automated market maker (AMM) competitor was bound to emerge. There have been several attempts to copy the #1 AMM on Ethereum. However, the first-mover advantage and strong fundamentals have kept Uniswap in the spotlight for several months. Until recently, that is, when PancakeSwap rose to prominence seemingly overnight. The space has seen a huge wave of adoption and trading volume galvanized by the Binance Smart Chain community. But, how do PancakeSwap vs Uniswap stack up against each other?

In this article, we’re going to explore the PancakeSwap and Uniswap AMM platforms and weigh the pros and cons of each. Also, we’re going to explore how these platforms rose to the top as the two DEXs with the highest trading volume. Furthermore,...

DeFi Deep Dive - Binance Smart Chain and CeDeFi

Written By Ivan on Tech

Feb 16, 2021

The decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem is growing at an exponential rate, with the Total Value Locked (TVL) extending from a little over $1 billion to $40 billion in just the past year (according to DeFi Pulse). While these kinds of numbers are great for people who got in early, the inflated prices can make it feel like one has already missed that boat. If you feel it’s too late to catch the DeFi train on Ethereum, there are some other promising projects on the Binance Smart Chain.

Written By Ivan on Tech

Feb 07, 2021

You might be forgiven for thinking that food-themed cryptocurrencies were just a ‘flash in the pan’, so to speak. To an extent, you may have even been correct. The yield farming frenzy during Summer 2020 produced several food-based yield farming protocols and tokens. PancakeSwap is a decentralized cryptocurrency exchange (DEX) built on Binance Smart Chain (BSC), powered by the BEP-20 Pancake token (CAKE). The CAKE token is one of several tokens used within the PancakeSwap protocol and made available for token swaps. Similar to Uniswap, PancakeSwap is an automated market maker (AMM) and decentralized application (dApp) that features liquidity pools where users can earn fees from staking, lending, and yield farming.

In this article, we’re going to explore the PancakeSwap platform and the seamless yield farming experience it creates for users. Also, we’re going to look at the CAKE token and the other tokens used with the platform. Furthermore, we’re going...
