Concave Jira Transparency Report
One goal that Concave has been striving for since Day 1 is transparency. We want to show the community what we are doing, and what kind of process and progress we are conducting to get things done. In the spirit of that goal, we have recently released our Q1 CO-OP Jira Transparency Report. Jira is the primary workflow tool that we use, and this report goes through how many tasks each department has completed, the resolution times to complete each task, and how many issues each member has worked on. As we value the proof of work that our community does, we wanted to show the community the proof of work that we do as well. You can take a look at the Transparency Report here.
Concave x Odyssey Event
Our Mushrohm event with Olympus Odyssey was a resounding success. During the event, we hosted an AMA with Dimitri Daniloff, who is an Award winning French Photographer and Artist and one of the Genesis Artists for Olympus Odyssey. During the cozy session, Dimitri talked about his life experiences, his inspirations, his genesis collection with Odyssey, and more! Over 50 people gathered in the area to listen to the AMA. This is just the start of what we are looking to do with Concave World. We will definitely have more to show in the future.
Upcoming Partner AMA Week
As we approach closer to launch, one big event that we wanted to host was a partner AMA week with all of our protocol partners. During these AMAs, community members will be able to ask our partners any burning questions that they may have, such as the specifics on protocol synergies and potential plans for the future. Our marketing and partnership department is busy at work getting these meetings ready for the community so please look forward to the event and launch!
Team Member Interview with Locke
A strong community needs a strong team, and the team has been busy at work getting Concave to be a powerhouse in the DeFi space. We wanted to drop by and have a short interview with Locke, one of the team members of Concave.
What is your background?
I’m a project generalist and have been heavily involved in several pre and post product launches. Usually my scope includes marketing, strategy, growth and operations.
How did you learn about Concave?
Just like most of us I would think. I was researching on projects to invest my time in and a dear friend invited me to Concave discord. The role grind at the start was quite fun. One thing led to another and I somehow stayed and contributed.
What are your personal hobbies?
I like hikes and water sports. It's important to detach from tech and appreciate the details in the forests or look at wave formations. Other than that, I enjoy bouldering and hanging out at cafes.
How do you envision Concave in the future?
It is interesting how Concave is shaping up and that it is full with passionate and talented people. In the short term, I would like to see Concave be an innovative first mover in its niche and chart its way to 1B market cap.
What is a goal that you would like to achieve?
I'd like to help get Concave to the point where it's one of the the top projects people think about when they talk about innovative DeFi projects.
