FPI aims to be the first on-chain stablecoin to have its own unit of account derived from a basket of goods, both crypto and non-crypto. While FPI can be considered an inflation resistant yield asset, its primary motivation is to create a new stablecoin to denominate transactions, value, and debt. Denominating DAO treasuries and measuring revenue in FPI as well as benchmarking performance against an FPI trading pair helps better gauge if value accrual is actively growing against inflation in real terms. It also helps ground on-chain economics to baskets of real world assets.
At first, the treasury will be comprised solely of $FRAX, but will expand to include other crypto-native assets such as bridged BTC, ETH, and non-crypto consumer goods and services.
