September 7, 2020 Control of SushiSwap has been transferred to FTX CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried.

The control of the SushiSwap decentralized exchange has transitioned from the project’s pseudonymous founder Chef Nomi to FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried. SushiSwap was originally forked from the automated market maker-style decentralized exchange, Uniswap, and was marketed by its supporters as having a greater interest in community governance. However, on Saturday Chef Nomi sold his Sushi LP tokens, leading to some referring to the sale as an “exit scam” with the founder subsequently transferring his protocol contract keys to FTX CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried.
