Fuzzy possibilistic logic is an important formalism for approximate reasoning. It extends the well-known basic propositional logic BL, introduced by Hájek, by offering the ability to reason about possibility and necessity of fuzzy propositions. We consider an algebraic approach to study this logic, introducing Pseudomonadic BL-algebras. These algebras turn to be a generalization of both Pseudomonadic algebras introduced by Bezhanishvili (Math Log Q 48:624?636, 2002) and serial, Euclidean and transitive Bimodal Gödel algebras proposed by Caicedo and Rodriguez (J Log Comput 25:37?55, 2015). We present the connection between this class of algebras and possibilistic BL-frames, as a first step to solve an open problem proposed by Hájek (Metamathematics of fuzzy logic. Trends in logic, Kluwer, Dordrecht, 1998, Chap. 8, Sect. 3).
