View: Frax Finance (Frax), formerly known as Decentral Bank, is a score algorithm stablectoin protocol. Frax is an open-source, unpermissive, full-chain protocol, currently running on Ethereum (possibly across the chain in the future). The ultimate goal of the Frax protocol is to provide a highly scalable, decentralized algorithmic currency, replacing fixed-supplied digital assets such as the BTC. The FRAX is a stablecoin and aims at around $1 / dollar. Frax Shares (FXS) is a governance token that can accumulate fees, seizure revenue, and excess collateral value.


Concept: public chain

Circulation market value: 5.889 billion USD

Current price: 2.31USD

All-time high: 3.47USD

History lowest: 0.0017USD

Opening price: 0.016USD

View: Fantom is a high-performance public chain based on DAG technology and supports smart contracts. Fantom’s vision is to build the best consensus framework and tools for developers to build interoperable DeFi products. Blockchain triangle dilemma is a known trade-off of distributed ledger technology center, that is, trade eoff speed, security, degree of decentralization. In this triangular dilemma, it is impossible to optimize three without a cost. Bitcoin, for example, achieves strong security through consensus protocol and decentralization but also abandons speed. Fantom is a new smart contract platform developed based on the directed acyclic graph DAG, aiming to solve the scalability problem in the existing public distributed ledger technology. The Fantom addresses this problem with the aBFT asynchronous Byzantine fault tolerance (asynchronous Byzantine Fault Tolerance).
