Recently, a variety of DeFi applications have built in the Starcoin ecosystem, such as Kikoswap, Starswap, etc. As a star project on the Stablecoin track, FAI is the most popular Stablecoin application that attracts everyone’s attention.

In order to facilitate you to have a deeper understanding of FAI, here is a quick guide for FAI for your reference.

The stablecoin FAI is the first algorithmic stablecoin on the Starcoin public chain, designed and developed by BFly studio. FAI is a stablecoin soft-pegged to the US dollar, and it is also the first batch of tokens to be launched on Starswap. Therefore, in addition to resisting market risks, FAI can also be used to mint LP Tokens on Starswap, such as STC/FAI pairs, participate in liquidity mining, and get rich STAR rewards.

Next, through a hands-on approach to introduce the FAI practical guide.

Preparation Stage

In fact, FAI has already been launched on the Starcoin main net, so users who have STC (STC is Starcoin’s native Token) can skip this stage and go directly to FAI’s official website to mint FAI. If you don’t have STC yet or if you are new to StarMask, please check the content to learn how to get STC and how to use the StarMask wallet.
