SushiSwap, one of many newest decentralized finance, or DeFi, tasks to overhaul the Blockchain area, has turned a serious web page in its quick life span. As of September 9, the protocol has formally accomplished a migration over to its personal decentralized change platform.
“Accomplished,” SushiSwap head Sam Bankman-Fried stated in a tweet at 3:10 p.m. EST, concluding a thread concerning the mission’s migration.
A number of hours previous to the transition’s completion, Bankman-Fried laid out plans for the migration on Twitter, subsequently posting updates all through the day, which included testing and specified particular person token migrations.

To say the mission has obtained important consideration can be placing it mildly. The platform, with its SUSHI asset, has additionally waded by its justifiable share of drama, largely round its chief, Chef Nomi, and a $27 million developer fund which Nomi reportedly managed. In a plot twist that will appear inevitable on reflection, Chef Nomi did certainly make off with a good portion of those developer funds earlier than passing off the project to Bankman-Fried, the present CEO of the FTX change.
“My sense is that they did care about SushiSwap and wished to do nicely and have been working exhausting for it,” Bankman-Fried told Cointelegraph of the nameless Chef Nomi. Greed could have in the end overtaken Nomi, nonetheless, the FTX CEO speculated, noting that he doesn’t suppose SushiSwap was a premeditated rip-off.
