Pancakeswap is the safest platform availble for trading on the Binance Smart Chain. They are quick and cheap. Please watch your slippage.

Recommended Slippage: 11-15% (Increases with high volume) 

Slippage explained: Slippage is the tolerance you can set for allowing a transaction to succeed. For instance: You submit your purchase or sell and before the blockchain processes the transaction other people either buy or sell a significant portion and the price fluctuates 5-20% and your transaction will still be approved even though when you purchased it was a different price and you either received more or less tokens up to the slippage amount you set.
