Key Features of PancakeSwap V3
Some of the key features of PancakeSwap V3 include better capital efficiency, introducing trading fee tiers, finding the best trade routes, advanced built-in limit order, VIP trading rewards, position manager, and a new affiliate program.
1. Capital Efficiency
PancakeSwap V3 introduces custom price ranges for Liquidity Providers (LPs) so traders can concentrate their capital on smaller price intervals. Stablecoin pools will benefit from this the most since the prices of assets hardly change compared to each other.
Moreover, PancakeSwap V3 is built on top of Uniswap V3 and is compatible with tools built for Uniswap. Don’t forget to check out the latest on Uniswap integrating BNB Chain.
2. Trading Fee Tiers
PancakeSwap V2 had a flat trading fee of 0.25%. PancakeSwap V3 introduces a new tier system with 4 trading fee tiers:
- 0.01% - For assets such as stable pairs with low impermanent loss (for example USDT/USDC).
- 0.05% - For assets with higher impermanent loss or less robust liquidity.
- 0.25% - For more exotic or less frequently traded assets.
- 1% - For least frequently traded assets or assets with a high impermanent loss.
3. Find the Best Trading Route
The improved smart router brings an overall improvement to the trading engine by adding split routing capability and the ability to utilize all possible liquidity in the protocol. The new smart router intelligently finds the best trading route by utilizing liquidity from PancakeSwap V3, V2, and StableSwap with multi-hop and split routing capabilities.
4. Advanced Built-in Limit Order [Coming Soon]
PancakeSwap V3 will soon introduce an advanced built-in limit order with improved liquidity provisioning, improved trading fee rewards to LPs, automatic APR display, improved ROI calculator, active liquidity farming, and liquidity farming with bCAKE.
5. VIP Trading Rewards Program [Coming Soon]
PancakeSwap V3 will soon introduce a VIP trading rewards program where VIPs will trade to earn from a prize pool to win up to a 5% trading fee rebate. To qualify, users must have a certain amount of locked CAKE and an active Pancake NFT Profile requiring 1.5 CAKE. Stay tuned for the minimum threshold requirements.
6. Position Manager [Coming Soon]
PancakeSwap V3 will soon introduce an automatic position managing feature, enabling users to easily deposit liquidity with just one click. This built-in tool eliminates the need for manual calculations or third-party integrations, allowing users to automatically adjust their positions and earn fee rewards while staying within range.
7. Affiliate Program
PancakeSwap also announced the launch of a first-ever official affiliate program with V3. Opinion leaders with a minimum of 10,000 followers across social media and an interest in the DeFi space can qualify for the affiliate program.
