PancakeSwap wants to cap token inflation rate at 3%–5% per year – Cointelegraph

"Staking Allocation to target approx. 0.35 – 1 CAKE/block instead of 6.65 CAKE/block," developers wrote.
Decentralized exchange (DEX) PancakeSwap wants to lower its token inflation to anywhere between 3% and 5% per annum, far below current rates of over 20%. 
In a proposal released on April 18, the DEX cited the need to transition CAKE (CAKE) into a staking model characterized by “low staking inflation,” “real yield drawn from PancakeSwap’s protocol revenues” and “product benefits favoring longer-term CAKE stakers.”
“This is a significant and important change for PancakeSwap,” the DEX wrote, while providing an opportunity for tokenholders to vote on appropriate changes and a feedback form to discuss them. Currently, PancakeSwap operates a high-token-emission model to incentivize high yields for protocol features such as liquidity pools and farm offerings, as well as removing tokens from circulation via high staking yields.
According to developers, CAKE had a net emission rate of 40 per block at its inception in September 2020; it was reduced to 14.25 per block in May 2022, with the rate floating at 9.2 CAKE per block at the time of publication. Eventually, developers wish to implement “ultrasound CAKE,” with a net emission rate of lower than 2 CAKE per block.
PancakeSwap is one of the most popular DEXs on BNB Chain. Last year, the DEX introduced a 750 million supply cap for CAKE, which currently has around 381.6 million tokens in circulation or locked in staking. Meanwhile, PancakeSwap’s total value locked amounts to $2.35 billion.
