- Based in:
- Started in / Announced on:
- Mainnet release:
- Pancakeswap, a decentralized exchange (DEX) built on Binance Smart Chain, which is permissioned, so calling Pancakeswap a 100% decentralized exchange is debatable.
"Pancakeswap started off as a pale imitation of SushiSwap. Pancakeswap's use case was straightforward: Users provided liquidity to the platform (receiving FLIP tokens in return) and farmed SYRUP, the platform’s governance token.
This arrangement was similar to the many peer-to-peer exchanges that popped up in 2020 offering big “yields” to users becoming liquidity providers and the chance to govern the platform. However, newer products like a lottery service and a non-fungible token (NFT) art platform have furthered Pancakeswap’s use cases.
Audits & Exploits
- PancakeSwap has a 1,000,000$ bug bounty program with ImmuneFi, and it is an active program. (5-8-2021).
- Got an updated score of 82% on DeFi Safety (5-8-2021):
"PakcakeSwap's core contracts have been audited by Certik, and twice by Slowmist. PancakeSwap's lottery V2 has been audited twice, and most of the changes recommended have been implemented. PancakeSwap's Peckshield Lottery V2 Audit. PancakeSwap's Slowmist Lottery V2 Audit."
With the comment: "PancakeSwap has updated their documentation and now has an impressive 82%. This makes them the highest-scoring BinanceChain protocol we've reviewed! PancakeSwap is clearly demonstrating a commitment to building a high-quality protocol users can trust."
- Previously scored 42% (4-5-2021):
"Certik has done an audit on PancakeSwap. The audit was done after deployment. The audit is not linked in the pancake swap website, github or docs. A major flaw in the syrup tokens was found and is not resolved in the deployed code, though they deprecated the pools. For these reasons a score of 40% is given." It scored very low on Access Controls, due to no information given.
"Hackers compromised PancakeSwap’s and Cream Finance’s websites yesterday. The Domain Name Service (DNS) attack modified the affected protocols’ website to display a request for the user’s seed phrase, which, if submitted, would compromise their entire account. Because the attack was not on a smart contract itself it is still unclear how many users the hacker tricked into sending their seed phrase as well as the total amount the attack netted."
- From BlockThreat (19-7-2021):
- Previously it scored very low on Access Controls, due to no information given. It got updated to 71%. From DeFi Safety (5-8-2021):
"PancakeSwap's admin controls are not well labelled and spread across multiple directories.
b) The type of ownership is clearly indicated (OnlyOwner / MultiSig / Defined Roles) -- 30%
c) The capabilities for change in the contracts are described -- 30%
Pause control is explained clearly but there is no evidence of regular testing."
- The CAKE token is continually “burned” (16-2-2021).
- Through a vote it has been decided that CAKE will be burned with each trade (22-4-2021).

Their Other Projects
Initial Farm Offering
"A gamified token launch mechanism called Initial Farm Offering, which allows anyone to earn new tokens by staking $CAKE and $BNB in an hour-long token sale."
- Can be found [Insert link here].
"Saw $400 million in trading volume yesterday and briefly became the world’s second-largest DEX service by trading volume, data from CoinGecko shows. With over $1.7 billion worth of various cryptocurrencies locked in the DEX.
As of today, there are over 176 markets on Pancakeswap. Wrapped BNB, a token issued by crypto exchange Binance, is the most traded market with over $81 million in volume in the past day. CAKE is next with a $45 million volume, and there are then the meme tokens like “Birthday Cake,” “Burger Swap,” and “Monster Slayer Cash,” which each account for much smaller volumes."
