Fraxbonds are Live!
Yesterday we got an announcement that Fraxbonds are live and currently available for minting! Frax's newest RWA product went live with three separate expirations on Ethereum. Read our full analysis for all the details.
CVX5 Interview with Jason Hitchcock
a new BD group called CVX5 wrote a proposal in the Frax gov forums this week to help bring new projects, protocols, and liquidity to Frax. We sat down with founding member Jason Hitchcock to discuss their goals and what they hope to bring to the table.
Coindesk Interviews Frax Founder Sam Kazemian on Fraxtal
With the launch of Fraxtal only a few days away, major crypto media outlets are starting to report on its launch.
“The current timeline is the first week of February. Etherscan will support it on day 1 with Fraxscan, and a huge slew of projects will debut soon after launch. It will surely be one of the biggest rollup releases of the year.”
Sam K. told Coindesk that he expects a big impact from Fraxtal:
“We expect at least a 9-figure total value locked in the first month and $1 billion plus for Q1. That should put us in the top 5 chains soon thereafter if our innovations are well received.”

Frax Shares (FXS)
FXS declined for the past week, dropping from a high of $9.60 down to a weekly low of $8.60, a decline of $10 for the week.
On the weekly chart FXS is still near the top of its range for the past year. This consolidation period might be broken once Fraxchain launches in February, as it would drive massive new interest into Frax's L2 for 2024

Catch up on the Alpha!
Cryptovestor had some great analysis of a potential upcoming addition of sfrxETH to f(x) protocol, which creates a stable and leveraged position from staked ETH. CV thinks that f(x) is "the f(x) platform will be the most efficient hub for LSDs to grow their TVL and incentivize liquidity."
