PancakeSwap, the leading decentralized exchange (DEX) on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC), has recently passed a proposal for its CAKE tokenomics version 2.5. The proposal aims to address the issue of inflation and to ensure the stability of the token’s value while continuing to incentivize users.
Under the new proposal, the CAKE Syrup Pool emissions will be immediately reduced from 6.65 CAKE per block to 3 CAKE per block. Moreover, after six months, the emission will be further reduced to 0.35 CAKE per block (approximately 2% APR).
The community proposed and voted on the decision, and it passed with an overwhelming majority of 88.8% votes. The move’s rationale was to combat inflation plaguing the CAKE tokenomics since its inception. By reducing the supply of tokens, the proposal hopes to increase their demand and stabilize their value.
In addition to the emission reduction, the proposal also introduced several changes to allocating CAKE rewards. For example, the maximum allocation for the Syrup Pool will be reduced from 50% to 35%, and the allocation for the marketing wallet will be reduced from 12% to 8%. These changes will be gradually implemented over the next few months.
Overall, the decision to adjust the CAKE tokenomics was made to create a more sustainable and rewarding ecosystem for users while ensuring the long-term success of the PancakeSwap platform. The community has embraced the changes, with many seeing the move as a positive step toward addressing the inflation issue that has affected the platform in recent months.
