PancakeSwap now accounts for more than 50% of the TVL on the growing Aptos chain, mirroring its status as the dominant DEX on BNB Chain.

PancakeSwap Clearly the Top DeFi Dapp on Aptos, BNB Chain

The chefs have done it again. PancakeSwap has broken the 50% barrier in terms of Total Value Locked (TVL) on the Aptos blockchain, meaning the majority of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) funds are on the platform.

PancakeSwap is not only the dominant Decentralized Exchange (DEX) on both BNB Chain and Aptos, but it is head-and-shoulders above competing DeFi Decentralized Applications (Dapps) on those chains. The DEX marked its Aptos achievement with a celebratory Tweet.

According to DefiLlama, PancakeSwap has captured 53% of TVL on Aptos and 44% on BNB Chain -- with those figures rising if you exclude liquid staking numbers.

The DEX has $29.5 million in TVL on Aptos and $2.3 billion on BNB Chain -- in each case, nearly three times the TVL amount of the next-ranked Dapp.

While overall TVL on BNB Chain has essentially flatlined since Summer 2022, the TVL on Aptos has steadily increased since the chain launched in October.

However, PancakeSwap is still taking tiny nibbles out of the biggest flapjack of them all, Ethereum, with $12.6 million out of the chainโ€™s total TVL of $48.7 billion (approximately 2.5%).

Like a prison cafeteria, major DEXes are eyeing their rivalsโ€™ plates on other blockchains, with Ethereumโ€™s UniSwap considering taking a bite out of BNB Chain and Avalancheโ€™s Trader Joe having a BNB Chain โ€œtable for twoโ€ reserved for its DEX and NFT Marketplace.
