PancakeSwap journey to “ultrasound” CAKE

The CAKE community has battled token inflation since its inception in 2021 and three years post the DEX asset’s development, the team is now focused on reducing total supply and pivoting away from hyperinflation. The project’s team believes that 450 million is a reasonable new cap for CAKE supply as it ensures a sufficient supply for future growth and for the token to stay deflationary long-term. 

CAKE price rallied nearly 6% following the proposal’s approval. At the time of writing, the DEX token is trading at $3.596, up 41% in the past week.
