We have all been following the drama and accusations around Sushi lately. I wish we were able to dismiss it all as a ‘baseless conspiracy’ just as the core team claims, but at this stage it seems hard to do. The newly published rekt article deserves to be linked here - https://rekt.news/sushiswap-scandal/
Whatever your view, the questions seem to be piling up and no satisfactory answers have been give, as of yet. The team is deflecting this into a narrative about a lack of compensation, instead of making coordinated efforts to introduce more transparency and restore the faith of the community first - https://twitter.com/josephdelong/status/1467498477542379522
The lack of empathy and outright hostility towards the community that makes this project great is apparent on the CTO’s side, when you read his tweets. Along with his repeated claims how he is not enjoying working here -
- The ‘FUCK OFF’ tweet shown in the rekt article which I think was now deleted
I think whatever your take on the rekt accusations, it should not have come to this stage. This episode has also shown that the current leader is emotionally unfit to engage with the community in a productive way and the best course of action is for him to be replaced and for the community to draw a line behind this episode. Joseph already gave us an ultimatum saying that either his compensation is increased or he leaves. Let’s make it easier for him.
Conditions of departure to be discussed. The suggestion is to find another key leadership figure whose forte is engaging with the community in a productive way and who can re-create a positive messaging around Sushi.
- Yes, ask Joseph to step down
- No, leave Joseph in charge
