PancakeSwap Ready to Revitalize Tokenomics

BNB Chain’s leading protocol is taking its role as the ‘vanguard of DeFi’ very seriously as they prepare to introduce a set of sweeping changes that Better reflect the DApp’s long-term visions.

V2 Tokenomics Tweak

PancakeSwap is looking to make revolutionary changes to their tokenomics that will see a maximum supply cap of 750 million $CAKE and the introduction of benefits for locked tokens. 

Alongside the capping of $CAKE’s supply, the token will retain most of its use-cases and also see additional use-cases for locked $CAKE derivatives like weighted voting, boosted farm yields, boosted IFO allocations and even more still to come. The platform is focusing on the future and assuming there are no changes to the rate of emissions, a supply cap of 750 million sets forth an approximate runway of a minimum of three years before the supply reaches this cap.

“We believe that having a max supply cap, and also incentives for an even smaller effective circulating supply better reflects the value, community, and sustainability of PancakeSwap,” the team exclusively revealed to BSC News.  

The team carried out a great deal of research before arriving at their 750 million cap and took into account best practices in the industry, their runway and valuation of what is to come in the near future. With the state of the market currently enduring a painful pull-back, the protocol is introducing changes that may offer stability for years to come.


The initial proposal was overwhelmingly approved by the vast majority of participants. The team has explained that it sees its role in DeFi as significant and is hoping to offer users as much information as possible before these changes are implemented.

When we consider the tokenomics of competing Decentralized Exchanges (DEXes) like Uniswap which has a maximum supply of 1 billion or Trader Joe with a maximum supply of 500 million, PancakeSwap’s off ramp period of a three-year minimum is longer and thus more reliable for long-term users. Calculations that highlight the aforementioned period can be viewed beneath.

Overview of Calculations 

Current Cake Supply: 290M $CAKE 

Number of Blocks per Year: 10.5M Blocks 

Number of CAKE Emitted per Year: 10.5M Blocks x 14.25* CAKE/block ≈ 150M $CAKE / year 

3 Year Runway

Current Cake Supply + 3 Years Worth of Cake Emissions 

290M $CAKE + (3 x 150M $CAKE) 

740M CAKE ≈ 750M CAKE
