Chef Nomi, the anonymous founder of the DeFi project SushiSwap, has just transferred the control of the project to FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried.
The decision comes just after Nomi hit all headlines after converting a large number of his SUSHI tokens to Ethereum, causing the price of the crypto to crash by 50% and making the community think the project is an exit scam.
However, Nomi transferred the control of the project to Bankman-Fried yesterday after handing over its management keys. Nomi said through his official Twitter account:
"I hope SushiSwap does well without me. Again I did not intend to do any harm. I'm sorry if my decision did not follow what you expected."
The project has received a lot of attention from the community since it was launched on August 28.
The price of the SUSHI crypto jumped from $1.8 to $3.2 shortly after the news was known.
