Pancakeswap is a decentralized exchange built on the Binance Smart Chain that offers fast transaction processing and low transaction fees. Pancakeswap uses smart contracts to let users trade crypto without a middleman. It’s a simple and user-friendly platform for trading and bridging Aptos from one wallet to another. 

Pancakeswap also lets Aptos holders earn passive income by either staking their tokens to earn rewards or contributing to a liquidity pool to receive a share of the trading fees.
