PancakeSwap Proposes Drastic Reduction in CAKE Token Supply to Combat Inflation
In a bold move to counter the annual inflation rate of its native token CAKE, PancakeSwap, the prominent decentralized exchange (DEX) on the BNB Chain ecosystem, has proposed a significant adjustment in the total supply of CAKE tokens. This proposal aims to reduce the existing supply from 750 million to 450 million, marking a substantial 40% decrease.
The initiative is part of PancakeSwap’s strategy to curtail CAKE’s yearly inflation rate to a mere 3-5%, aligning with its “ultrasound CAKE” journey, steering the tokenomics towards a long-term deflationary model.
Established in 2020, PancakeSwap has rapidly evolved into the second-largest decentralized trading platform globally, trailing only behind Uniswap. Over the past year, PancakeSwap has undergone notable overhauls in its tokenomics structure, focusing not only on issuance but also on developmental strategies.

From the enhancements in CAKE v2.5 tokenomics to the introduction of the veCAKE model, the launch of a gaming marketplace, and the integration of additional products across multiple network ecosystems like Base, Linea, Arbitrum One, zkSync Era, the DEX has been relentless in its evolution. Moreover, PancakeSwap has even implemented a revenue-sharing mechanism, distributing transaction fees among CAKE holders.
The news of the reduction in token supply triggered an immediate and positive response in CAKE’s price, witnessing an impressive surge of over 25% on the 4-hour chart. At the time of reporting, CAKE is trading around $2.53, showcasing remarkable growth compared to the $2.2 price before the announcement.
This move by PancakeSwap reflects its commitment to a sustainable tokenomics model and its determination to address inflation concerns, thereby garnering significant market attention and investor confidence.
