FRAX is the world’s first fractional-algorithmic stablecoin protocol. That means it is partially collateralized, and partially stabilized algorithmically. FRAX’s collateralization ratio (CR) increases or decreases, as supply and demand changes. The token can become more algorithmic, or more collateralized, as it seeks a stable value. The end goal of the FRAX protocol is to provide a highly scalable, decentralized, algorithmic money in place of fixed-supply digital assets like BTC. Since launching in December 2020, FRAX has grown rapidly with over $700M in TVL (Total Value Locked) and a $250M+ market cap.
