FAQs

The price of FLX starts at $2 and deprecates based on a predetermined deprecation mechanism of 72 hours. Price is determined by demand for FLX set by the market. This ensure the market decides the fair price for the asset from the start.

Unfortunately with all the activity on the Ethereum network, transactions can be quite expensive, so having a reserve of ETH is a good idea for participation.

Our team won’t comment on participation or timing. This is a decision you must make yourself based on your view of the fair market price of FLX.

You can go to any major AMM like Uniswap, Sushiswap, or Balancer and swap between most assets and USDC, but make sure to leave enough ETH to pay for transactions though.
