PancakeSwap NFT Market

Our first year came to a close with the launch of the fourth main pillar of our ecosystem! Trade, Earn, Win, and now… NFTs.

Yesterday, we released Phase 1 of the PancakeSwap NFT Market.

This is only the very first step in what’s going to become a core part of the PancakeSwap world.

At time of writing, in just over 24 hours since launch, we already achieved some huge volume on only one collection:
Trading volume: 9,214 BNB = 3,624,050 USD
Fees taken to buyback & burn CAKE (2%): 184 BNB = 72,370 USD

That’s a lot of CAKE to burn for just one day since launch! Coming soon:

  • Oct 7: PancakeSquad NFT Collection
  • Soon: Phase 2 — buy & sell other collections

New Site Navigation

This month we rolled out our new, mobile-first navigation system for the site. Now it’s way easier to get around the site and find what you need… especially for mobile users.

With a renewed focus on the main things you want to do on site — Trade, Earn, Win, and now the brand new NFT Marketplace — we hope you like the new, streamlined experience. Let us know what you think on our Twitter!

Farm Auctions

We’ve burned a total of 66,920 CAKE so far since the first community farm auction launched in September.

A total of 21 projects joined the auctions to bid for a coveted PancakeSwap farm pair, with 6 winners in total this month.

Farm Auctions give projects a way to incentivize liquidity provision for your token’s pairs.

If you’re a project looking to run a Farm, apply via the PancakeSwap Farm application form.

Birthday Celebrations

Users with active Pancake Profiles and more than 140 points were awarded with a new Achievement for their Profile.
But there’s more…

Win one of 100 free #PancakeSquad NFTs.

There are four ways to win, all detailed in this Twitter thread.
You really don’t want to miss this one — We expect the Pancake Squad launch to sell out pretty fast, so don’t turn down the opportunity to win one!

NFT: Panurai

“Panurai: Honorable defender of the PancakeSwap Community.”

Our community would not be the same without our amazing #PancakeSwap admins! Panurai is an exclusive #NFT dedicated to honor their efforts and support, and we think it’s one of Chef Cecy’s finest works yet.

Available for trading on the PancakeSwap NFT Market now… if anyone can bear to sell him!!

Pancake Squad

Launching October 7th

Pancake Squad is a brand new generative collection of 10,000 different NFTs, brought to you by our very own Chef Cecy! No Pancake Squad bunny will be entirely alike, since they’re all randomly assembled from hundreds of parts.

The Basics:

  • Launching October 7 (UTC)
  • Price TBC, around $300 in CAKE
  • Max 10 NFTs per wallet
  • PancakeSwap Profiles are required to participate. Get yours.
  • Presale open to owners of the 5 Gen 0 Pancake Bunny NFT types shown below.

The sale will take part in 3 main phases:

  • Presale Phase: Wallets which are eligible for the presale will have a few hours before the public sale in which they can buy squad tickets in advance.
  • Public Sale Phase: Spend CAKE to buy squad tickets. ⚠️First come, first served.
  • Claim Phase: Shortly after all 10,000 squad tickets have been bought, we move to the claim phase. Squad ticket holders can redeem them for free to receive a randomly-assigned NFT.

NFT Market Phase 2

Soon you’ll be able to buy and sell more than just PancakeSwap’s NFTs.

Next up after PancakeSquad is Phase 2 of the PancakeSwap NFT Market, and it’s coming soon.
