OHM x FRAX: A New Breed of Partnership

2 min readJun 10, 2021

We are pleased to announce the official launch of the OHM-FRAX pool, as part of a partnership between OlympusDAO and FRAX Finance. Read on to learn more about what we are doing and why we are so excited.

What are we doing

Olympus and Frax are partnering for a dual-token liquidity pool on Uniswap. which will consist of OHM and FRAX.

Starting on Friday, Olympus will begin accumulating this pool through OHM-FRAX bonds. We will offer OHM at a discount in exchange for ownership of the pool. Our expectation and goal is that we accumulate a majority share, and continue to build up more and more liquidity, just as we have done with OHM-DAI.

Over time, Frax also plans to accumulate OHM by purchasing OHM-FRAX bonds. We believe this is the first case of a treasury-to-treasury operation in DeFi. This is an exciting way for Frax to both build exposure to OHM and increase its own liquidity. This also opens up new possibilities that we are excited to explore in the future.

Why we are doing it

Olympus and Frax are both collaborative projects building exciting products in the decentralized currency space. There are strong synergies between our projects that, if harnessed, can mutually accelerate our growth. We feel that this is only the first step in a long lasting mutually beneficial relationship.

In the case of Olympus, we can offer demand and increased liquidity for FRAX. Through bonds, we can continually grow the OHM-FRAX pool, creating a supply sink for FRAX and offering greater utility through a new offering.

In the case of Frax, they can offer demand and increased liquidity for OHM. Through treasury AMOs, they can divert new FRAX into the OHM-FRAX pool and use that LP to bond. This will thicken the pair and strengthen their market, as well as add new exposure to their balance sheet. We hope to see this assist as they safely reduce FRAX collateralization over time.
