Crypto Markets Update
This was a very interesting week for the Crypto markets as we got to see the reaction to the release of new inflation data for the US. The figure turned out to be a bit higher than expected, and the initial reaction was a price crash. Higher than expected inflation is bad news for risk assets, as market agents expect central banks to double their efforts to bring it down using contractionary monetary policy. In other words, the higher the inflation, the more likely it is that central banks will shy away from starting the money printer again. Because of this, it was no surprise when the crash happened right after the announcement. The strange thing happened a few hours later, when markets bounced back to levels even higher than the ones before.
Some people are interpreting this as a sign of resilience, thinking that from now on the Crypto markets will be indifferent to the actions of the Fed and other central banks. This would fit the narrative of Bitcoin as an inflation hedge. However, there are signs that this is not yet the case. The most obvious one comes from observing the reaction of the stock markets compared to the Crypto markets. In this particular case, they reacted almost exactly in the same way. That seems a strong indication that there is not yet a strong decoupling, and Crypto remains vulnerable to stock market shocks.

Fake Telegram Servers
We have received reports of fake StakeCube Telegram servers, most likely created with the intention of stealing funds from our users. These are some examples of fake servers:
The main StakeCube Telegram server is this one:
Please make sure to use this one and always beware of team impersonators and other scammers. Read our Security Notice at the end of this newsletter for more details.
Please remember that KTS is being delisted and today is the last day you can withdraw your coins! Make sure to get them before the deadline or they will be lost forever. This was the delisting announcement:
YieldNodes and Decenomy
As you probably noticed, all Decenomy coins had very significant loses this week reaching more than 80%. As it seems, YieldNodes has blocked withdrawals due to financing problems that they blamed on the bear market and the general economic situation. To compensate users they have issued an NFT representing the value of the account, but many users are unhappy with this solution. On the Decenomy Discord Servers you will find a detailed explanation, but this is the key part:
Either way although it is sad to see some of our users lose money, StakeCube is not in any way affected by this.
Monk Collateral Change
Monk masternodes have once more increased their collateral requirement from 70,000 coins to 100,000. This makes it necessary to redeploy all masternodes with the new collateral. In order to continue receiving masternode rewards, users must destroy all hot nodes they had with the previous collateral amount, and set up new ones.
