After launching PancakeSwap V3 at the beginning of April, the decentralized exchange has unveiled its latest roadmap. This includes plans for new features on the platform and measures to control CAKE inflation.

Following a tradition that goes back to its inception, PancakeSwap V3 copy-pasted most of its code from UniSwap’s V3 upgrade. But whereas PancakeSwap was initially little more than a Uniswap clone transposed onto BNB Chain, since its launch, it has pursued a multichain strategy. 

Now deployed on Aptos and Ethereum too, PancakeSwap is growing its presence across the DeFi ecosystem.

In an AMA this week, PancakeSwap’s Product Manager noted that the V3 upgrade is central to PancakeSwap’s ambition to expand beyond its roots. “We are looking to further expand to some other strong and promising blockchains to capture […] many great opportunities,” he commented.

During the AMA session, Head Chef Mochi claimed that PancakeSwap is currently the largest Decentralized Exchange (DEX) on Aptos and BNB Chain. Moreover, ten days into expanding PancakeSwap V3, the platform had broken into the top 10 DEXs by volume on Ethereum.

New Features Under Development for PancakeSwap V3

Much of the current product development is focused on bringing functionality the community has come to expect on BNB chain to the newly conquered territories.

This includes expanding exchange’s native token CAKE to take advantage of recent multichain growth. Specifically, the team said they are exploring how the PancakeSwap V3 upgrade can bring locked CAKE utility to other blockchains.

Beyond rehashing tried and tested features for Aptos and Ethereum users, other new features the platform has planned for PancakeSwap V3 include a tool to help users automate their liquidity positions.

This position manager will allow other protocols to provide their strategies to liquidity providers. Thus, users will gain access to a range of different strategies to automate their positions.

PancakeSwap Developers Attempt To Curb CAKE Inflation

Aside from product development, long-time PancakeSwap users are understandably concerned with CAKE inflation. Clearly aware of the issue, the DEX’s developers have sought to change PancakeSwap’s yield farming mechanism so that it creates less CAKE.

As part of the PancakeSwap V3 upgrade, the amount of CAKE created will be reduced. BNB chain will experience a 45% yield reduction alongside a 32% cut on Ethereum. In addition, the DEX hopes that its multichain strategy will lead to higher trading volumes. This will lead to more CAKE being burned without negatively impacting returns.
