PancakeSwap x Dysnix Case Study

DEX infrastructure handling 100,000 RPS with 62.5x faster response.

Meet PancakeSwap

PancakeSwap is a popular decentralized exchange (DEX) built on the Binance Smart Chain. It uses automated smart contracts to facilitate crypto swapping directly between users. PancakeSwap also offers features like staking and yield farming, allowing users to earn rewards on their holdings.

During events like airdrops, it experiences the massive traffic loads of more than 100,000 RPS, and our team created an infrastructure that can handle it with ease.
