About

PancakeSwap is a leading multichain decentralized exchange that operates on an automated market maker (AMM) model. Launched in 2020, Pancakeswap is one of the most popular DEXs in the cryptocurrency industry due to its low transaction fees, high-speed trading, and user-friendly platform. PancakeSwap has over $711 billion in total trading volume, $2.24 billion in total liquidity locked, and 1.8M active users. We're thrilled to unveil PancakeSwap v4, the latest iteration of the protocol. This upgrade addresses the limitations of DEXs by introducing key features such as: - Hooks: Empower liquidity pools with externally deployed contracts, offering customizable features such as dynamic fees, order types, custom oracles, active liquidity management modules, and more. - Custom Pool Types and Donate: From the tried-and-tested CLAMM to the Liquidity Book AMM with hooks, PancakeSwap v4 supports a diverse range of pool types and can support any new AMM model that may not yet exist, allowing for unparalleled flexibility and incentivization to users. - Singleton and Flash Accounting: Users benefit from massive gas savings and operational efficiency through these gas optimization techniques. In the spirit of collaboration and community-driven innovation, PancakeSwap v4 is proudly open-source. We invite developers to join us on this journey to shape the future of DeFi. As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting developers, PancakeSwap is pleased to announce our first-ever hackathon, boasting a $10,000 prize pool. Developers are encouraged to unleash their creativity and showcase their innovative hook ideas, driving forward the evolution of the PancakeSwap ecosystem.
