Major Crypto News
Global regulators monitor crypto use in Ukraine war
Ukraine has also raised more than $100 million in cryptocurrencies after posting appeals on social media for donations for military and humanitarian needs in bitcoin and other digital tokens. Some crypto exchanges have rejected calls to cut off all Russian users, raising concerns that crypto could be used as a way to circumvent sanctions.
Traders Bet on Ether Staking After Eth 2.0 Upgrade
With the merge test run completed successfully, researchers expect the mainnet launch to happen by the end of June. Observers foresee increased institutional adoption once the Eth 2.0 upgrade is complete. Ilan Solot, a partner at the TagusCapital Multi-Strategy Fund is optimistic for the estimates for the post-merge yield "I'm quite optimistic. Estimates for post-merge yield are at 10% and above. Plus, moving to proof of stake means it's easier for institutions to adopt it since they don't need to defend the energy consumption part of investment argument associated with bitcoin and proof of work coins," Ilan Solot, a partner at the TagusCapital Multi-Strategy Fund.
Bitcoin Slips in Crypto ‘No Man’s Land’
In theory, Bitcoin and its peers should trade independently from mainstream financial markets. However, cryptos have shown themselves this year to be correlated with other risk-sensitive assets, like stocks, and the largest digital assets were lower on Monday in line with equities. Investors fretted over the latest developments in the Russia-Ukraine war.

Team Member Interview with $igil
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 $igil, one of the team members of Concave.
What is your background?
I make music under the name “$igil” & went on my first tours doing shows with artists from the Soundcloud scene shortly after graduating high school. Since then I’ve released over 100 songs & spent a year interning at a recording studio doing audio engineering. I’m an entrepreneur, and have started & self-operated multiple local businesses. I have no college degree or plans to get one.
How did you learn about Concave?
I went deep into the caves the first day that the discord opened up, I joined along with my fellow miner Starfoxlaflare.
What are your personal hobbies?
Songwriting and making music are my favorite ways to spend time. I also enjoy creating with other mediums such as drawing, music videos, & clothing design. I have a passion for Stoicism and learning about our universe. I enjoy spending my days around my girlfriend & the ones I love.
How do you envision Concave in the future?
I see the structure of Concave becoming the new model for how communities will function as a unit. A thriving community working towards goals that mutually benefit all of Concave, while developing constant advancements through stigmergic collaboration.
What is a goal that you would like to achieve?
My main goal is to be a source of inspiration for the world. I hope to continue to advance my music career, and to become an asset for empowering independent artists with Concave Records.

More work has been done on our great Education Hub. Education is a primary focus that we are striving to pursue further and in the future, we are looking to host classes workshops in our Concave Town Education Hub.
