PancakeSwap’s native token Cake currently has a price of $4.55 and a market capital of $635613397.17.
From the tweet posted by PancakeSwap, it is understood the detailed source of the burnt tokens. Almost 124k tokens were gained through trading; both swap and perpetual trading. The tokens made through trading which cost almost $565k were burnt during the burning event.
