HOLY MOTHER OF LIQUIDATIONS
During the filming of This Week in Frax yesterday, we witnessed one of the largest intraday moves for crypto this year. Markets were rocked when over $1bn of notional value was liquidated across CEX's. It was also Fraxlend's largest liquidations in a 24hr period as well.
We have a new liquidation winner (or loser) as anon 0x0be had their WETH liquidated for $641k dollars.
FXS wasn't spared at all, as prices rapidly dropped from $6.15, all the way down to $5.11 on Binance and $5.54 on Fraxswap. The lowest the Chainlink oracle touched was $5.41 where a poor FXS holder was liquidated with a bottom tick.
What's super interesting is that anon 0x3689c216f8f6ce7e2ce2a27c81a23096a787f532 has been liquidated for 100k TWICE in two months..... hmmm. What's going on? In their first loan, they used 103k FXS to borrow $558k FRAX. and in their second loan, they used 100k FXS to borrow $541k FRAX. 0x368 was the FIRST to be liquidated yesterday as well. We're going to leave our conspiracy hats off here...
Other notable liqudiations yesterday was 2 lots of 300k CVX total that had over $700k Frax borrowed.
Curve Finance Founder Michael Egorov still remains strong with his CRV position however.
Frax DAO to Acquire $1 million Worth of CRV
Speaking of Michael, Frax DAO voted to purchase $1m worth of CRV in what @curvecap said would be potentially "the last deal made." The vote was pushed over the line with 11m veFXS votes. Frax most likely will swap it to cvxCRV or stake it themselves to use for future gauge voting rewards for its liquidity pools.

ACT figured out the strategy :)
Sam K also floated this week that FPI could be backed with FXB if inflation was lower than yields.
Also, Sam K said that the new FXB pools would enjoy a similar bribing system as to what FRAXBP has now.

Sam Kaz The Bell Curve Interview
If this doesn't make you bullish, I don't know what will. Sam speculated that FXS market cap (if it does all the things Sam K wants it to) will be top 5-10 in a few years and that would mean FXS to $2400. Sam K the HYPERBULL.
Sam also had some interesting thoughts around FPIS and how it might be absorbed back into FXS at a later date. It's definitely worth a listen.
