How to earn CAKE using PancakeSwap
CAKE is the native cryptocurrency token of PancakeSwap, a decentralized exchange (DEX) built on the Binance Smart Chain. PancakeSwap offers people a simple platform to swap various cryptocurrencies. You’re also able to earn CAKE tokens by participating in PancakeSwap's yield farming and staking features.
Yield farming involves providing liquidity to the platform by depositing a pair of tokens into liquidity pools, which assists others in making seamless trades. In return, users receive LP (liquidity provider) tokens, representing their share of the liquidity pool. By staking these LP tokens on PancakeSwap, users can earn CAKE as a reward.
Another way to earn CAKE is through staking. Staking involves locking up your CAKE tokens in a dedicated staking pool on PancakeSwap. In return, users earn additional CAKE tokens as rewards, in proportion to the amount of CAKE staked and the duration it is locked up. This staking method is what we’ll cover in the below steps, however, you are encouraged to explore all of PancakeSwap’s features.
Step 1: Connect to PancakeSwap
Select the Trust Wallet Web3 Browser

Choose the “Trust Wallet” option.
Confirm the connection by selecting “Connect”.
Select “Earn” and choose “Pools”. Note: you can earn Cake with the other options, however, for illustration purposes, we’re using Pools here.
Choose “Stake CAKE”.
Choose an option from either Flexible or Locked
Follow the remaining instructions to start earning CAKE.
The Power of Web3 and Decentralized Exchanges
As we come to the end of our guide on earning Cake using Trust Wallet, it's important to recognize the transformative power of Web3 and decentralized exchanges (DEXs). Web3 wallets, such as the Trust Wallet, provide users the flexibility and autonomy to connect with various decentralized protocols and DEXs directly. Whether you're staking CAKE in a pool or using the liquid staking option, your self-custody wallet acts as a gateway to these DeFi services.
It’s also worth noting that Trust Wallet is easily accessible not only on your mobile device but also on your desktop. It is conveniently available as a Chrome extension on the Chrome web store, making it effortless to manage your assets while browsing the web.
In a nutshell, using a Web3 wallet to interact with open, decentralized protocols can offer numerous opportunities to earn more crypto, and platforms like Trust Wallet make this process seamless and user-friendly.
