Staking in Syrup Pools and farming with Yield Farming are both ways to earn more CAKE by supporting PancakeSwap.
New Pools are added to PancakeSwap frequently. There will always be an announcement before the launch of new pools.
Previously, rewards earned by LP Token-holders generated from trading fees were not included in Farm APR calculations. APR calculations now include these rewards, and better reflect the expected APR for Farm pairs.
Whenever there is an official airdrop on PancakeSwap it will be announced along with the requirements.
Please remember anyone can airdrop tokens to PancakeSwap users since every transaction is public on BscScan. Be sure to do your own research when it comes to non-official airdrops. To protect your funds, we recommend you don't use a smart contract you don't understand from a source you don't trust.
If you've already transferred BNB into your BNB Smart Chain-enabled wallet but still have this error, you're most likely not connected to BNB Smart Chain within your wallet. Check your wallet's selected network and make sure you have BNB Smart Chain (BSC) selected.
The treasury funds are used to cover the expenses involved in running PancakeSwap. These expenses include salaries, audits, prizes, hosting, upkeep, bounties, etc.

PancakeSwap's vault has anti-flashloan protection. PancakeSwap’s CAKE token isn’t vulnerable to flash loan attacks. Unlike vulnerable tokens, CAKE token minting is predefined, and can’t be adjusted in a single transaction. Ownership cannot be transferred outside of MasterChef contract.
PancakeSwap’s other smart contracts, like IFO and AutoPool, are protected as well; they prevent other contracts from interacting with them, reducing the scope of vector attacks.
SYRUP was a part of the staking process earlier in PancakeSwap's life. SYRUP was discontinued when a security issue was discovered and is no longer a part of PancakeSwap.
