Binance Smart Chain (BNB) and Ethereum have started hosting PancakeSwap V3, the latest version of the popular decentralized exchange. PancakeSwap V3 offers several new features, including concentrated liquidity and customizable fee structures, and is expected to provide a smoother and more efficient trading experience for users. By being hosted on both BNB and Ethereum, PancakeSwap V3 will also offer more flexibility and accessibility to traders on both chains. This move is expected to further increase the popularity of PancakeSwap, which has already become one of the most widely used decentralized exchanges in the DeFi ecosystem.
PancakeSwap Launches V3 on Ethereum and BNB Chain with Advanced Features
PancakeSwap, one of the most popular decentralized exchanges, has announced the launch of V3 on both Ethereum and BNB Chain. This new version of the platform offers significant improvements compared to its predecessor, V2. Notably, V3 boasts higher efficiency and greater flexibility in setting fee structures for its users. Trading fees have been reduced by 25 times, while capital efficiency has increased by a remarkable 4,000-fold, enabling users to earn higher profits conveniently.
Liquidity providers have a lot to celebrate with the release of V3. PancakeSwap has introduced greater flexibility in trading fees, enabling providers to set the point within the range based on their preferences. Unlike V2, which charged a 0.25% fee on all trades irrespective of their categories and sizes, V3 offers four different fee structures. These include 0.01%, 0.05%, 0.25%, and 1%.
Under the new system, the PancakeSwap treasury and liquidity providers will each receive an appropriate share of the generated trading fee, with a certain percentage going towards burning CAKE tokens. The distribution among liquidity providers, treasury, and CAKE burns is depicted in a table within the platform.
To better illustrate the new fee structure, consider two traders, A and B. Previously, Trader A would provide 1,000 USDT, and Trader B would receive 997.5 USDC at a 0.25% fee. Now fees of 0.01% can be applied, meaning that Trader A can sell 1,000 USDT for 999.9 USDC. This example is based on the assumption that the price is 1:1, and the trading slippage is negligible.
PancakeSwap continues to dominate the BNB Network as a decentralized exchange, with a total value lock of $2.5 billion. V3 aims to solidify the platform’s position on the BNB Chain while also hoping to lead the Ethereum chart. This development comes only days after Uniswap’s V3 BSL (Business Source Licence) expired.
The future looks promising for PancakeSwap, with two additional features in the pipeline for implementation. The Position Manager and VIP Trading Reward Points are expected to be introduced soon, although no definite timeline has been provided yet. The Position Manager Tool will make it easy for liquidity providers to deposit liquidity with a single click while also enabling automated strategies to manage liquidity. The VIP Trading Rewards Program will be dedicated to loyal users of the platform, who will gain access to exclusive perks.
In conclusion, the new and improved PancakeSwap V3 offers greater efficiency, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness for traders and liquidity providers alike. With more features in the pipeline, the platform is set to continue dominating the decentralized exchange market for a long time.
