Burning More CAKE

In a record token burning event, the hugely popular decentralized exchange (DEX) PancakeSwap burned $153 million USD worth of CAKE.

News of the token burn was tweeted by PancakeSwap on August 30th. The update was met with large excitement from the PancakeSwap community, as the enormous amount of CAKE burned is the largest amount of CAKE to date. 

“BIGGEST CAKE BURN EVER!!!! 6,397,125 $CAKE burn - that's $153M USD! This week we have bought back $4M USD of CAKE from the market (Trading + Prediction), NFT + Profile + Vault = $325k, (and) Lottery = $510k (20,400 CAKE)! Next week will be even bigger.” wrote PancakeSwap in their Twitter post. 

Although PancakeSwap has successfully burned a record high number of CAKE tokens, this sadly for CAKE investors does not directly mean that the price of CAKE will go up. In fact, over the last seven days, the cost of CAKE has sunk down more than 7%, according to CoinGecko


With an ecstatic community and investors now closely eying CAKE’s price, time will tell if the massive token burn amounts to any volatile short-term price action.
