The burn transaction occurred at 09:28 (UTC), per data from BSCScan, the block explorer and analytics platform for BNB Smart Chain.

PancakeSwap also provided updates on market analytics. Notably, trading fees from PancakeSwap V2/Perpetual and V3 accounted for 107K CAKE and 75K CAKE tokens. The exciting update added that PancakeSwap Prediction and Lottery solutions accounted for 67K CAKE and 27K CAKE tokens.

In light of this development, the total CAKE tokens burned to date has increased to 952,660,681 (952.66M). Accordingly, the circulating supply of the PancakeSwap governance token has dropped 213,148,504 (213.1 million) tokens.

Reacting to the development, a particular community member noted that CAKE has remained deflationary in the past two weeks. The crypto analyst added that more than 50% of the token’s current supply is stuck in the Cake pool on PancakeSwap.

PancakeSwap Launches on Linea Network

The latest CAKE burn event comes shortly after the popular BSC-based decentralized exchange supported the Linea Network on its platform.

It bears mentioning that PancakeSwap expanded to the emerging Ethereum layer-2 blockchain on Friday. The DEX now supports several blockchains, including Ethereum, Aptos, Polygon zkEVM, zkSync Era, Arbitrum, and Linea.

However, these positive developments have failed to impact the price of CAKE significantly. At press time, CAKE is exchanging at $1.27, posting a decline of over 15% in the past 30 days.
