Frax gets an Arbitrum airdrop
The Abitrum airdrop was this week, and Frax hit it big, receiving more than 500,000 ARB for their service on the network. Yesterday, Flywheel producer Samuel McCulloch, proposed that we match the ARB with FRAX from the FXS buyback fund. This would be added as liquidity to both Curve, Uniswap and Fraxswap.
The buyback fund was authorized after the LUNA collapse of last year. It authorized the protocol to purchase up to $20 million worth of FXS, however only $2 million has been bought at this point.
Additionally, new gauges are expected once the FIP passes. This could be the beginning of a new liquidity regime on the L2 network.

Frax’s validators received more than 80 ETH from MEV and Tips during the calamity. You would have returned to their normal levels, but it is exciting to see how validators will perform in adverse market conditions.
