About Frax Finance

The stablecoin (FRAX) is named after the “fractional-algorithmic” stability mechanism. The ratio of collateralized and algorithmic depends on the market’s pricing of the FRAX stablecoin. If FRAX is trading at above $1, the protocol decreases the collateral ratio. If FRAX is trading at under $1, the protocol increases the collateral ratio.

FRAX: is the stablecoin targeting a tight band around $1/coin.

Frax Shares (FXS): is the governance token which accrues fees, seigniorage revenue, and excess collateral value.

Frax Price Index (FPI): is the second stablecoin of the Frax Finance ecosystem. FPI is the first stablecoin pegged to a basket of real-world consumer items as defined by the US CPI-U average.

Frax Price Index Share (FPIS): is the governance token of FPI, which is also entitled to seigniorage from the protocol.

Frax Ether (frxETH): is a stablecoin loosely pegged to ETH, leveraging Frax’s winning playbook on stablecoins and onboarding ETH into the Frax ecosystem.

Staked Frax Ether (sfrxETH): is the version of frxETH which accrues staking yield, All profit generated from Frax Ether validators is distributed to sfrxETH holders. By exchanging frxETH for sfrxETH, one becomes eligible for staking yield, which is redeemed upon converting sfrxETH back to frxETH.
