Uniswap vs. PancakeSwap

While CAKE was gearing up for its V3 launch, an interesting episode happened on Uniswap [UNI] pools. Lookonchain’s latest tweet revealed that eight addresses stole assets worth over $25 million from eight Uniswap pools by sandwich attacking.

For starters, front-running attacks like the sandwich attack are quite common in DeFi on decentralized exchanges. When an attacker engages in both purchasing and selling on the same block, a sandwich attack occurs because the victim’s transaction happens in the middle.

This attack could increase negative sentiments around Uniswap, which could in turn be beneficial for PancakeSwap. Interestingly, Dune’s data revealed that CAKE was already ahead of Uniswap in terms of daily volume dominance on the BNB Chain.
