Purpose of token burn

PancakeSwap does not have a supply cap, meaning it has a limitless supply. 40 CAKE is emitted (minted) per every Binance Smart Chain block (PancakeSwap is a Binance Smart Chain-based dApp). Because the circulating supply has a direct effect on the price of the CAKE token, they are built in mechanisms such as weekly token burns to assure that the market is not flooded with CAKE. The ultimate goal of reducing emissions is to become emission neutral, meaning more CAKE leaves circulation (through token burns) than is produced. CAKE will become a deflationary token if more CAKE is burned than emitted. Currently, CAKE is inflationary, meaning that more tokens are entering the circulating supply every day.
