PancakeSwap Smart Router is a routing algorithm that links V3, V2, StableSwap (BNB Chain), and the AMM and market makers (BNB Chain & Ethereum), to always provide liquidity and pricing. On default, it executes trades across multiple pools to find the best price for traders.
Smart Router is now the default route for PancakeSwap Exchange V3. However, users are free to customize it for their needs.
