- PancakeSwap passed a proposal to reduce its total CAKE token supply from 750 million to 450 million, receiving 97.88% community approval.
- The reduced supply provides certainty about future emissions, supporting PancakeSwap’s goal of an ultrasound token model. It also allows flexibility to gain market share while sustaining CAKE.
- The proposal is expected to positively impact CAKE’s value and market position. CAKE has already climbed 38% amid the governance voting. This indicates community support for PancakeSwap’s evolved tokenomics approach.
In a major milestone for decentralized finance (DeFi), PancakeSwap has passed a proposal to reduce its total token supply. This reflects the platform’s efforts to move towards a more sustainable tokenomics model.
The Voting Process
On December 29th, PancakeSwap closed a proposal to cap the maximum supply of its native token, CAKE, at 450 million, down from 750 million previously. The proposal received an overwhelming 97.88% approval rate from the community.
Motivations Behind the Proposal
The proposal was driven by several factors. Firstly, it provides certainty about future CAKE supply. This is a critical step towards PancakeSwap’s goal of achieving an “ultrasound” token model.
Additionally, the 450 million cap allows flexibility for capturing market share across chains while sustaining the CAKE system.
The reduced supply is anticipated to positively impact CAKE’s value and PancakeSwap’s market position. CAKE has already climbed 38% over the past week amid the governance voting.
There are currently 388 million CAKE in circulation. The community’s strong backing indicates support for PancakeSwap’s strategic direction under its evolved tokenomics approach.
With intensive refinements to its emissions and growth strategy over the past year, PancakeSwap has positioned itself for the next stage of evolution. The reduced supply proposal represents a landmark moment as the platform transitions toward a more sustainable and ultrasound token model.
