How to fix Pancakeswap's Router address in Safemoon

Hey guys, with Safemoon we discovered a huge problem. They hardcoded Pancake v1 Router so all the people that are trying to fork Safemoon will run into the same problem. If you want to leave it hardcoded, then just change it with Pancake v2 Router address 0x10ED43C718714eb63d5aA57B78B54704E256024E.
Otherwise, if you want to avoid another time this situation… maybe with Pancake v3… you can add these lines of code.

//New Pancakeswap router version?
    //No problem, just change it!
    function setRouterAddress(address newRouter) public onlyOwner() {
       //Thank you FreezyEx
        IUniswapV2Router02 _newPancakeRouter = IUniswapV2Router02(newRouter);
        uniswapV2Pair = IUniswapV2Factory(_newPancakeRouter.factory()).createPair(address(this), _newPancakeRouter.WETH());
        uniswapV2Router = _newPancakeRouter;

I didn’t test it, so let me know if there are any problems. I hope it works :grin:


Great solution. Hope this gets more attention from people making clones.


Thanks for sharing @FreezyEx! Just edited your post’s title so it says more to someone scrolling through the guides, please be mindful of it next time! :slight_smile:


Ups You are right, Sorry😁


Hey I randomly ran into this looking for a soluttion to using pancake swap on testnet. I can’t seem to add liquidity and have rand into errors like

Error: Internal JSON-RPC error. { "code": -32000, "message": "execution reverted" }

I am able to create the pair successfully but i can’t add. I have even tried the safemoon code and still the same issue

Please share more info. Did you approved the router address to use tokens?

I’m now attempting with safemoon contract but i updated it to testnet with:

        IUniswapV2Router02 _uniswapV2Router = IUniswapV2Router02(0xD99D1c33F9fC3444f8101754aBC46c52416550D1);

        uniswapV2Pair = IUniswapV2Factory(_uniswapV2Router.factory())
            .createPair(address(this), _uniswapV2Router.WETH());

        uniswapV2Router = _uniswapV2Router;

I’ve tried two ways, through here:

and with the code itself, both don’t work

function addLiquidity(uint256 tokenAmount, uint256 ethAmount) public {
    // approve token transfer to cover all possible scenarios
    _approve(address(this), address(uniswapV2Router), tokenAmount);

    // add the liquidity
    uniswapV2Router.addLiquidityETH{value: ethAmount}(
        0, // slippage is unavoidable
        0, // slippage is unavoidable

The error comes from the code above.

The pair is working as i can check for it but can’t add.

Even with the safemoon adding liquidity if the contract goes above 500000 * 10**6 * 10**9, it won’t work because then it tells me that there isn’t enough liquidity, although, this makes sense because i never added any. Or? Should it just work regardless and add tthe BNB/SAFEMOON>?

to add liqudiity you have to go on router address

This is testnet pancake swap router address

Factory: 0x6725F303b657a9451d8BA641348b6761A6CC7a17

Router: 0xD99D1c33F9fC3444f8101754aBC46c52416550D1

Have you tried this in testnet?

The token i am building isn’t a copy of safemoon but it does include a pricing floor similar to safemoon so i need to be able to provide liquidity on demand

I figured since theres works, i could just copy it but i ran into the same issues


yes <i have testest on testnet

And you were able to add liquidity?

A quick update. I was able to create a pair on 2 test tokens i made with createPair

I then used the same thing but with addLiquidityETH but i get the same error. I’ve tried from remix, truffle, genache, and web3 through module.exports but i still get the same error…

I assume maybe pancake hasn’t set this up yet?

Did you add liquidity with WBNB/BNB or what? I’m super confused

why do they use the multiple ‘uniswap’ references in the code when its clearly for pancakeswap though?

Well yeah i’m trying to test on pancake testnet but i couldnt add liquidity so i grabbed safemoon since i new they’re doing it but same issues. so now im just using their file until i figure it out.

You able to addd liquidity to their testnet?

I was able to ddo it with 2 tokens i made together but not WBNB or BNB

Did you approbe Pancake Router?


Because Pancake is Uniswap Fork


Tried both uniswap and pancake.

Although i am having an issue in rinkbey adding liquidity manually into uniswap. I get

Something went wrong

I cant even launch safemoon on ropsten due to a gas issue. Unsure if it is remix or not.

This same error happens on kovan as well. If i use a normal erc20 like openzepp default, it works. I assume this may be some deflationary issue. although i can add liq on v3

The default address will be kept like this?
