According to DappRadar’s data, the number of transactions made on the PancakeSwap DEX increased by an astounding 210.96%, over the last month. This occurred due to a massive spike in activity on the PancakeSwap network. As a result, the protocol’s volume also surged by 188.94%.

However, regarding sentiment, the overall consensus on BNB across social platforms was negative. This was indicated by the declining weighted sentiment for BNB.
