Wednesday night Joseph Delong, CTO of SushiSwap, the 13th largest decentralized exchange, or DEX, in terms of trade volume, resigned immediately from his post. Explaining his decision, Delong made the following statement:

“I wish Sushi the best and I am saddened that Sushi is so threatened inside and out. The chaos that is happening right now should not result in a resolution that will leave the DAO as much of a shadow as it does. once was without a radical structural transformation. “

Previously, Delong had expressed his disappointment at SushiSwap’s inability to get started on Optimism, a layer two scaling solution for Ethereum (ETH). Delong also claimed to have received little support from centralized hacker identity exchanges after SushiSwap’s token launch pad was hacked for $ 3 million, claiming it was “the most difficult day of my life so far”.

But it seems it wasn’t just the technical setbacks of the project that played a role in Delong’s decision. In a series of Follow-up tweets after the announcement, Delong posted screenshots of alleged harassment from SushiSwap users, to which he then quoted “the community is doing it for me.”

“I strongly recommend the installation of a C-suite outside the DAO [Decentralized Autonomous Organization] and give them the tools to effectively manage a team. Beware of self-proclaimed leaders from the current core team, ”said Delong.
