PancakeSwap, a DEX platform based on Binance Smart Chain (BSC), has made several new changes to its distribution of farming rewards.

According to the annoucement, these changes were brought on by popular demands of the PancakeSwap community members. First, PancakeSwap launched a new proposal for the new farm reward distribution structure. Then, community members had to vote to support introducing the new farming reward distribution regime.

More Details of The Proposal

The proposal, in simple terms, advocates the redistribution of farming rewards from underperforming farms. According to reports, the proposal scaled through with huge support from PancakeSwap community members.

The purpose is to redirect $CAKE rewards given to farms that are having a bad performance and give them to farms that are providing the most value.

Interestingly, the proposal had a total of 1,603,709.75 votes. Notably, a whopping 1,582,004.67 votes supported the proposal. However, 21,705.08 of the total votes were against the introduction of the proposal. Finally, the proposal passed with an estimated 98% approval rating during the entire voting process.

On the other hand, speaking on the new farming reward regime, PancakeSwap disclosed: “Changes made will help make popular farms even more rewarding.” Also, adding that $CAKE rewards on subpar farms will be redistributed across all existing farms. This, in turn, will help provide more “[…] space to add more new Syrup Pool/farm combos, etc.”

Also, Some of the affected farms include:

  • DVI/BNB, etc.
