PancakeSwap (CAKE) continues to plunge gradually as the DeFi coin failed to ride the bullish waves seen on top crypto markets during October. While writing this article, CAKE trades at $12.61 following a 1.3% drop. Nevertheless, the alt remains nearly 2,000% up YTD.
Can CAKE price resume its uptrends? Should you buy, sell, or hold? Let us analyze the PancakeSwap ecosystem and the long-term price outlook.
PancakeSwap is an online DEX on Binance Smart Chain. The platform resembles Uniswap (UNI) on Ethereum’s blockchain. While a single company operates centralized exchanges such a Coinbase and Binance, DEX allows individuals to trade without intermediaries. PancakeSwap plans to compete with Ether’s network by introducing faster transactions and lower fees.
PancakeSwap attracted users quickly due to its low transaction charges and allowing users to swap tokens instantly with account registrations. Its official website shows followers has staked around $12 billion, while the past 30 days had 2.8M active users, making 31 million trades.
