🐰 The new year is here and with it comes new goals, but the #Buidl spirit continues on.

Aptos Deployment: Adding more value!

Leading DEX on Aptos Network

📈We are proud to announce that PancakeSwap has reached new heights in the DeFi space.

Our community has helped us achieve over 50% dominance on the Aptos Network, demonstrating our strength and growth in the ecosystem.

💪 Thanks to the support of the community, we are the premier DEX on not just BNB Chain, but also Aptos.

Aptos Farm Emissions Confirmation Vote

Following the multichain vote, Chefs have been launching, monitoring, and optimizing the liquidity levels, trading experience, and overall UI/UX on Aptos.

We launched a vote proposal for the community to confirm if they agree with the steps we have taken on the network.

We appreciate all the support!! With this confirmation, we have completed the first phase of deploying PancakeSwap to Aptos.

We intend to expand our presence in the Aptos ecosystem, introduce our products to the network and leverage its strength on the BNB Chain to attract Aptos-based projects.

Our goal is to increase visibility, provide a competitive offering, and improve CAKE burn. This will result in a more vibrant ecosystem for everyone!🥞

The $ceUSDC Syrup Pool is now live on Aptos!

We launched a new Syrup Pool waiting for all the CAKE users on Aptos!

BNB Chain

bCAKE: News about Farm Boosters

🚀 You can now activate boosters on 2 Farms with an adjusted boost multiplier. Use our ROI calculator to preview your new boost ratio.

🆕 To take advantage of the new boost, you will need to unset the current booster and reapply it.

Lock CAKE to start boosting 👉

Looking for a greater boost and more bCAKE enabled farms? The kitchen is constantly monitoring the statistics and performance of both bCAKE, CAKE Pool and Farms. And will continue to make further adjustments to the bCAKE. Stay tuned.

Auto Risk Scanning! Partnership with AvengerDao

✨ We are excited to join BNB chain and AvengerDAO to increase security within the ecosystem.

⚙️ Risk scanning is now automatically conducted when selecting or importing a token, providing users with a reliable and consistent security experience.

🔄 AvengerDAO is a unique community-run security infrastructure project designed to protect users on BNB Chain from possible exploits, scams and malicious actors.

Farm Multipliers Visual Update

In January, we rolled out a change to our frontend for Farms on BNB Chain and Ethereum — visually rebasing multipliers by a factor of 10.

This will enable us to further optimize our approach to incentivizing farms.

There is no difference in the amount of CAKE incentives a Farm receives BEFORE and AFTER this change! A Farm before the change that had a 0.1x multiplier will now appear as having a 1x multiplier, and the amount of CAKE they’ll receive will remain the same.

CAKE Emissions Streamlining

As we all know, CAKE is precious, and to continue on the path of growth and expansion, we proposed to demarcate our emissions by function, to better reflect the desired outcome of each and every single CAKE.

PancakeSwap community and CAKE holders agreed to our proposition about streamlining emissions

*Please note there is no change to total emissions

Celebrating the Year of the Rabbit with the Lunar New Year Lottery

To celebrate the Year of the Rabbit and Lunar New Year, we announced a special Lottery campaign, which was a huge success!🎉

The campaign offered a whopping Lottery Jackpot of up to 26,530 CAKE (~96,000 USD) to be won initially, with a few tasks to improve the jackpot. But the community jumped into the tickets sale, ending in a massive 46,562 CAKE (~185,000 USD) jackpot to draw 🤯

Our New Year Lottery campaign was a perfect way for our users to win big and join in on the festivities! The PancakeSwap Lottery is a beloved feature among our users, offering fair and easy chances to win huge CAKE prizes. Each ticket only cost USD 5 in CAKE, and bulk discounts were available for those who wanted to enter multiple times. 🎁
