BSC Tutorial: Providing Liquidity on PancakeSwap Using TrustWallet

This article outlines the ease of providing liquidity to PancakeSwap using the TrustWallet wallet app from your smartphone.

What is Liquidity?

Liquidity is a measure of ease in which an asset can be converted to other assets without affecting the price. This determines how quickly and easily assets can be sold. Adequate liquidity indicates that an asset can be easily bought and sold without impacting the price. On the other end, a lack of liquidity implies that users who want to purchase large amounts of the assets may face difficulties, typically resulting in high slippage. Typically in traditional markets, large entities will provide liquidity through making the market. In the context of Automated Market Makers (AMM) any user can leverage this technology and become a market maker in the BSC blockchain.

Yield Farming

PancakeSwap, along with nearly every other De-Fi protocol, offers users liquidity incentives to bootstrap their growth further. This means that on top of earning transaction fees, users can earn the native governance token CAKE. To do so, users can deposit LP tokens granted to them for providing liquidity into yield optimizers or the basic farm function on PCS. These rewards allow users to earn APY’s upwards of 100%, which are compounded further through smart contracts in platforms like Beefy.FinanceJetFuel Finance, and AutoFarm.
