Yet the scenario is flipped now, as Pancakeswap which is an AMM and yeild farm on Binance Smart Chain has topped the race. One of the major reasons for this swing might be the spiking gas fees on Uniswap which is an Ethereum based DEX.

The most interesting trait of this flip remains with the market size of Pancakeswap platform. It has only 207 coins with 784 pairs and nearly 577,651 visits according to Crypto tracking tool Coingecko. Compared to that of Uniswap where-in the platform offers nearly 1593 coins with 2154 pairs and no. of visits are more than 2 million.

Therefore with fewer market offerings, Pancakeswap is successful in flipping Uniswap to be the leader of DEX. The CEO of Binance Changpeng Zhao also suggested that Uniswap should also move on to Binance Smart Chain(BSC) for a reduced load of fees.
