On February 22, 2024, Sam Kazemian proposed a merge of FPIS into FXS. This would reunite the FPI protocol under the backing of FXS, which would allow for its renewed growth by lifting the supply cap of $100.

In the proposal, Sam Kazemian recommended to "Merge FPIS tokens into the FXS distribution at a fixed exchange rate of 1 FPIS to a 4 year veFXS lock meaning that in 4 years, 1 FPIS can be withdrawn from veFXS as 1 FXS if a user does not extend the lock."

The proposal has been the main topic of discussion in the Frax community with people picking sides. As of publishing of the proposal, FPIS was trading at an average of $1.10 since last October, with a circulating market cap of approximately $30m. The initial proposal values FPIS at a 1:1 ratio with FXS, currently trading at $8.

The proposal's reception has been one of the most contentious in Frax's history, as the interconnected nature of FXS and FPIS holders creates potential conflicts of interest.

We at Flywheel at watching the discussion closely as the initial proposal for a 1:1 is currently being revised and will be reposted potentially in the next week or two.
