Vampire Squid Sighting?
Have you gotten a chance to read CryptoLeaks yet? This new whistleblower website recently published an analysis of what happened to ICP’s price upon launch. The report focuses on ICP-PERP, a synthetic coin used on FTX’s futures market to represent the real token. FTX’s supposed manipulation has been a long-standing community theory, with even Dominic Williams offering his opinion on the matter. Whatever you believe, it may be a good idea to move your ICP off of centralized entities at this time, especially in the wake of the Celsius meltdown.
IC Jobs, a job board for the Internet Computer, has launched! Individuals can seek available positions for free, and teams can post about employment opportunities in the ICP ecosystem (post enhancement is available for small fees). Check it out!

All the News That’s Fit to Tweet

InfinitySwap, a highly anticipated DEX and AMM being built on the Internet Computer, announces a strategic partnership with Ceto (formerly known as CetoSwap).

I Do What I Want
ICP’s NFT market is showing surprising resilience to crypto’s overall downward pressure. Azumi, an animated collection launched by NyanNyanStudio, completely minted out within a few hours; the NFTs are backed by a week-long guarantee, where the Studio (run by NyanCat, community manager for DfinityVN) promises to buy back any unwanted NFTs at the original mint price of 3 ICP. KawaiiVHS’s “KVHS Drafts” also sold out within the first day.
OpenChat, a messaging dapp running fully on the Internet Computer blockchain rolled out two major pieces of news. The dapp already allows seamless sending of ICP to users, and now allows message forwarding abilities. Additionally, they’ve introduced a referral program, where you can invite friends to sign up for an account. You will be credited for every new person who signs up using your referral link, and be credited in CHAT tokens at a later date.
