Orca has integrated with Stripe for fiat-onramps!
ECOSYSTEM UPDATES. — — Fiat-to-crypto purchases are now available through Orca’s UI. — Fiat purchases of crypto are now possible through orca.so! A fiat-to-crypto onramp has now been built seamlessly inside the Orca UI through an integration with Link, built by Stripe. New podmates can now convert fiat currency to crypto with ease while exploring the Orca ecosystem, without the need to buy crypto on other exchanges first. To get started, just connect your wallet on orca.so, open the token tab on the left and click the dollar sign: Please note that at launch, this feature is currently available only to US users. This will then direct you to Stripe’s simple order flow, allowing you to purchase SPL tokens including USDC and SOL with fiat currency. The tokens purchased will then be transferred back to your wallet, where they will appear in the token panel! Note that Orca will not be involved in the handling of fiat funds or bank data in this process — the purchase flow will be conducted entirely through Link, by Stripe. Stripe has integrated with a number of Web3 projects, but Orca marks the first AMM it has integrated with on any blockchain! Part of Orca’s mission is enabling broader economic access.

|BONK Goes Bonkers With Over 200% Increase In Last 24 Hours – Will ...
Solana’s ecosystem found itself in knee-deep trouble caused by fear, uncertainty and doubt over its connections with disgraced crypto exchange FTX.
Since after the collapse of the exchange, the ecosystem has been trying to distance itself from FTX former CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, with Messari even releasing a detailed overview of the ecosystem and how it was impacted by the implosion back in December 15.
But a new project called Bonk has been making headlines these past days, shooting up in price and giving Solana some welcome respite from the troubles it had to endure.
What Is BONK And What It Can Bring To The Solana Ecosystem
According to Bonk’s official website, Bonk stands for the Solana community who made the Solana ecosystem great in the first place. It is the first Solana dog coin 'for the people, by the people.'
'The Bonk contributors are tired of toxic 'Alameda' tokenomics and wanted to make a fun memecoin where everyone gets a fair shot,” the official website says.
This certainly hit a spot on the Solana community and the crypto world as a whole as the token is now up 214% in the past 24 hours.

|What is Bonk Inu (BONK): The Dogecoin of Solana?
Memecoins have been a part of the crypto culture for almost as long as the community existed, but 2020 and 2021 saw them soar to a whole new level.
It got to a point where two memecoins - Dogecoin (DOGE) and Shiba Inu (SHIB) became frequent members of the top-10 club (the 10 largest cryptocurrencies by means of total market capitalization).
The bear market of 2022 has impacted most memecoins severely, but DOGE and SHIB continue to be leading coins.
That said, there’s a new kid on the block - one built on Solana - and is going the miles. The cryptocurrency in question is called Bonk Inu (BONK), so let’s have a closer look at what it actually does.
What is Bonk Inu (BONK)?
According to its official one-pager, BONK is the very first Dog-themed memecoin on Solana that’s “for the people, by the people.”
The document states:
The BONK contributors were tired of toxic “Alameda” tokenomics and wanted to make a fun memecoin where everyone gets a fair shot.
50% of the total supply of the cryptocurrency was airdropped to the Solana community, while the main purpose of the team behind it is to bring back liquidity to decentralized exchanges built on Solana.
In fact, that’s pretty much everything the document outlines, alongside the token distribution.
BONK Token Distribution Explained
As mentioned above, 50% of the supply was airdropped to the Solana community, divided as it follows:
20% of it went to Solana NFT collections (297K individual...
|Hubble Protocol Launches Kamino Finance to Optimize Yields for Liquidity...
PRESS RELEASE. LONDON | August 30, 2022 – Hubble Protocol, home of the USDH stablecoin, has launched Kamino Finance: the first concentrated liquidity market maker (CLMM) optimizer of its kind on the Solana blockchain.
Kamino Finance, launching initially on next-generation decentralized exchange (DEX) Orca, will allow users to earn higher yields in a fully automated way simply by depositing their crypto into vaults linked to Orca's liquidity 'whirlpools.'
Kamino Finance builds on the advantages of CLMM's, which reduce slippage and facilitate larger trades by narrowing the price range at which users provide liquidity.
By automatically adjusting positions so they are set in an optimum range to capture the most fees and provide the deepest liquidity, Kamino removes common pain points for CLMM liquidity providers (LPs). In addition, Kamino automatically compounds CLMM fees and rewards back into users' LP positions, boosting yields as position sizes grow.
Marius Ciubotariu, the co-founder of Hubble Protocol, says: 'Managing profitable LP positions has been notoriously difficult due to the complexities posed by CLMMs and the increased risk of impermanent loss when prices swing the wrong way, as well as front-running by bots – common on Ethereum.
'Thanks to the lightning-speed throughput of the Solana blockchain, Kamino is able to provide LPs with higher yields and maximum capital efficiency. This fully realizes the potential of CLMMs. With Kamino, we hope to be paving ...
|Gnosis Safe raises $100M led by 1kx to grow its crypto-custody solution,...
Safe (previously known as Gnosis Safe), a blockchain asset management platform, today announced it has raised $100 million led by 1kx. Initially developed as an internal tool, Gnosis Safe has organically become a critical infrastructure for web3 as a means to securely manage digital assets.
This funding round is a milestone for the growth of Safe as a programmable ownership platform, enabling secure management of digital assets, data, and identity across DAOs, plus retail and institutional users.
Today's new funding and strategic alliances will enable Safe to grow an ecosystem of apps and tools on top of its smart contract account protocol. All funding is extended to the Safe Ecosystem Foundation, a non-profit organization protecting strategic assets and contributing to the further development of Safe.
The round is also joined by Tiger Global, A&T Capital, Blockchain Capital, Digital Currency Group, Greenfield One, Rockaway Blockchain Fund, ParaFi, Lightspeed, Polymorphic Capital, Superscrypt, and 50 other strategic partners and industry experts.
Unlocking ownership for everyone in web3
Gaining wide adoption for its self-custody solution, Safe has been used to process over 600,000 transactions and secure digital assets exceeding $40 billion. Additionally, many highly valued NFTs, including 13% of all Cryptopunks, are currently secured using Safe.

|Solana TVL Sees Sharp Decline, Reaches 2022 Low
When Solana's price hit new lows near $54, the total value locked (TVL) for the token also declined to a historical low. According to data from Defi Llama, the token's TVL has been on a steady decline since November 2021. However, the research says that Solana has lost 60% in total value locked since January first day of 2022, trapped inside a bear market pattern.
To be exact, on January 1st, Solana's TVL was approximately $11.22 billion, but by May 16, it had fallen to around $4.38 billion.
Solana is a blockchain that helps create user-friendly applications that are very scalable. As the fastest growing ecosystem in the crypto finance space, Solana has thousands of projects under Web3, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and DeFi.
Reason Behind The Decline in Solana Total Value Locked
This week, the Solana TVL reached new lows due to the number of decentralized applications (dApps) in its ecosystem plummeting.
For example, the Tulip yield aggregation platform has shed more than 11% of its TVL in the last month. Likewise, the Solend decentralized lending and borrowing platform have also fallen by more than 8% within the same timeframe.

There has been a shift in market sentiment as Bitcoin attempts to bounce from a low near $33,000. A large portion of traders seem to have positioned themselves on the short side.
On crypto exchange Binance, according to Jarvis Labs, funding rates for derivatives turned negative. However, they yet need to reach similar levels as in other downtrends.

As the chart shows, funding rates on this platform are barely on negative territory while in June 2021, when Bitcoin hit a yearly low of $28,800, the metric stood higher. This suggests there is room for more downside and more a bigger bearish sentiment across the market.
