Within the wake of the sudden departure of Chef Nomi, the unique founding father of SushiSwap, FTX alternate CEO Sam Bankman-Fried was left to kind out the mess.
Cointelegraph interviewed Bankman-Fried about his Sushi-related adventures and his imaginative and prescient for the way forward for the challenge.
Bankman-Fried grew to become the holder of the keys to SushiSwap on Sep. 6, simply over per week after the launch of the challenge. Chef Nomi handing these keys over was as sudden for him because it was for the remainder of us, he mentioned:
“I used to be asleep on a beanbag and I heard a shout from somebody [saying] that Nomi tweeted that he was going handy me the keys to the treasury, which was fairly stunning. The fundamental reply is, it kind of got here out of nowhere.”
Chef Nomi didn’t clarify why, however Bankman-Fried conjectured that it was because of his place as a revered member of the neighborhood and CEO of an organization with its personal improvement staff. As well as, he’s a SUSHI stakeholder:
“I’ve been farming some, and I believe that is associated to why I’ve been so related to it.”
He maintained that he doesn’t know the identification of Chef Nomi, and he solely had contact with them over Twitter DM. By these contacts, he shaped an opinion on the nameless developer:
“My sense is that they did care about SushiSwap and wished to do properly and have been working arduous for it. In all probability [they] acquired a bit grasping, and doubtless acquired in a bit over their head. […] And so they made a foul choice. That is my learn of it, fairly than it being a long-planned heist or something like that.”
Talking when it comes to the way forward for the challenge, Bankman-Fried believes that many of the liquidity will doubtless keep on SushiSwap by means of the migration, although “that’s not assured and we’re going to should see what occurs publish migration,” he added.
The challenge additionally accomplished the choice course of for the brand new multisig signers that might maintain the keys to the treasury and the contracts. Bankman-Fried was voted in, however he mentioned that he’ll take a much less lively position after the preliminary transition is over:
“I could share ideas and ideas on it, however I am not going to be working it, that’s as much as the SUSHI holders. In the end, it is less than me long-term what occurs.”
