Free TON, a decentralized proof-of-stake blockchain powered by its community, and Frax, a fractional-algorithmic stablecoin protocol, announced a partnership to make decentralized finance more functional and affordable for everyone. The Frax team will deploy its protocol to the Free TON ecosystem so that its stablecoin, Frax, and governance token, FXS, can be minted natively on Free TON.
This partnership will be implemented in two stages:
Farming: The addition of the FRAX/WTON, FXS/WTON and FRAX/USDC pairs to the native Free TON decentralized exchange TON Swap, which was developed by Broxus, a multilevel turnkey platform for crypto exchanges, e-commerce and trading platforms. TON rewards will be applied to users, in providing liquidity to those pools.
Frax’s deployment on Free TON: Porting the Frax protocol smart contracts to Free TON so that users can natively mint Frax on Free TON with their wrapped USD Coin (USDC).
The partnership will allow users and teams from both Free TON and Frax ecosystems to access highly scalable, stable and on-chain money with low transaction costs and high transactions per second.
“Frax Finance is an algorithmic stablecoin that creates a revolutionary product by approaching the price stability problem differently. The team has already introduced brand new features, such as staking and yield farming,” said Vladislav Ponomarev, CEO of Broxus.
“Free TON offers a blockchain-based infinite sharing paradigm using a traditional proof-of-stake or PoS mechanism which makes it unique in the DeFi ecosystem,” said Sam Kazemian, the founder of Frax.
About Free TON
Free TON is a fast, secure and scalable blockchain, which is capable of handling millions of transactions per second and is on a mission to drive the wide adoption of decentralized solutions by millions of users. Free TON’s unique features include an infinite sharding paradigm, instant hypercube routing, PoS mechanics to validate new blocks, the ability to configure network parameters by voting, and more.
Frax is the first fractional-algorithmic stablecoin protocol. Frax is open-source, permissionless and entirely on-chain. The vision for the Frax protocol is to provide highly scalable and decentralized algorithmic money in place of fixed-supply digital assets such as Bitcoin (BTC). Frax is the only stablecoin with parts of its supply backed by collateral and parts of the supply algorithm. The collateralized and algorithmic ratio depends on the market’s pricing of the Frax stablecoin. If Frax is trading at above $1, the protocol decreases the collateral ratio. Vice versa, if Frax is trading at under $1, the protocol increases the collateral ratio.
About TON Swap
TON Swap operates liquidity pools represented by separate smart contracts. Unlike Ethereum contracts, Free TON’s contracts are distributed and benefit from the infinite sharding mechanism. As a result, transaction gas fees are several orders lower than the average and do not depend on the network workload. Anyone who contributes to those pools with their liquidity is eligible to participate in the yield farming program by the Free TON DeFi Alliance.
Broxus, one of the leading developers of the FreeTON network, has announced that they have made key updates to TON Swap, the FreeTON-powered DEX. The most significant changes are centered around the platform’s farming offerings, which were given expanded parameters on Sept. 3 in conjunction with the sustained growth and increase in liquidity the platform […]
Last year, Free TON ran a contest that gained the network over 400 validators. The contest, dubbed “The Crystal Game” (homage to the Glass Bead Game) had validators compete in validation cycles recurrently in order to win the title of “Magister Ludi” as well as token prizes. This year, those same validators (in addition to […]
FreeTON DeFi Alliance has partnered with North American blockchain leader GDA Capital for the launch of the inaugural Next Top TON Startup. The annual event will allow blockchain startups to compete with each other, connect with global industry leaders and investors, and build the future of blockchain technology. The best teams and individuals in each track will win up […]
Together with its AMM-based decentralized exchange TONSwap and the FreeTON DeFi alliance, FreeTON is looking for the right set of companies for its new incubator program. Dubbed the “Crystal Handshake program,” FreeTON’s incubation program plans to provide these Ethereum-based startups with the ability to reach their desired level of liquidity that will help them realize […]

A new decentralized exchange powered by Free TON’s infinite sharding mechanism helps retail traders radically increase their trading efficiency. “Pain and agony,” say Uniswap users looking at Ethereum gas prices. As a result of its tremendous growth over several months, decentralized exchanges on Ethereum are becoming significantly less viable for retail traders. To solve this […]
The Free Ton bridge is a second-layer solution that links the Ethereum blockchain with that of Free Ton. The bridge fulfills a key function in decentralized finance, giving users the opportunity of transferring their assets from a first-layer chain, where transactions are slow and costly, to a newer chain with better scaling capabilities and close […]
