Many have voiced suspicions regarding certain aspects of SushiSwap including concerns over a $27 million developer fund

SushiSwap has moved the launch date five days earlier. According to the original design for the SushiSwap launch, Ethereum users would get an extra-large share of SUSHI if they deposited Uniswap V2 LP tokens pre SushiSwap launch, over the two weeks following block 10750000.

SushiSwap, the automated market maker aiming to unseat market leader Uniswap, moved up its launch by five days

Both Uniswap and Sushiswap are always designed to have a price at which they will swap any two tokens they have in liquidity pools. Because of SushiSwap, the total value in assets locked on Uniswap has gone up by just under $ 1.5 billion since the SushiSwap contract went into effect at block 10750000 on August 28, according to DeFi Pulse, making Uniswap the largest holder of Ethereum assets in DeFi right now.

One app can boost liquidity to other thanks to SushiSwap’s liquidity mining program. SushiSwap promises to reward those who help it compete for liquidity with both new transaction fees and administrative tokens, also earning a portion of the transaction fees.

Uniswap is built without an admin token; instead, it is a venture-backed company. Liquidity providers (LP) are rewarded by sharing a 0.3% fee for all transactions in the pool for which they have also submitted liquidity.

According to the original design for the SushiSwap launch, Ethereum users will receive a larger share of SUSHI if they deposit Uniswap V2 LP tokens before the SushiSwap launch, for two weeks after block 10750000.

Uniswap runs on a series of pools consisting of two tokens per pool. It uses these pools to allow the user to exchange any two ERC20 tokens. Each pool has its unique LP token that users receive if they deposit liquidity.

These LP tokens can be withdrawn at any time for a user’s share in that pool. SushiSwap is encouraging users to deposit large sums of money into Uniswap and then transfer the LP tokens they received to transfer to SushiSwap. Then, at a set time, SushiSwap will exchange all those LP tokens, transferring a large amount of Uniswap’s liquidity to SushiSwap.

Uniswap LP token senders have been promised the exact amount of SushiSwap LP tokens, so many will be more than happy.

According to an expected token-sharing tracker of SushiSwap, the project has 79.9% of Uniswap’s liquidity in the LP token. That liquidation withdrawal was initially scheduled to take place at the end of that two-week bonus period, or around September 11.

With a new proposal submitted by NomiChef, SushiSwap’s creator, on Thursday, that timeline has been moved up to 48 hours from the “timelock,” which is presumably sometime shortly following the end of the vote.

The vote ended at 14:00 UTC Friday, with just under 87% of SUSHI holdings voting in favor, which should mean the liquidity shift should happen sometime on Sunday.

Many have voiced suspicions regarding certain aspects of the project and its token SUSHI

Aside from some comments in favor of SushiSwap, there are quite a few who have expressed skepticism regarding several aspects of the project, including concerns over a verified $ 27 million developer fund—controlled only by the project leader – an anonymous character known only as Chef Nomi.

The project’s general manager, 0xMaki on SushiSwap’s Discord server, recently shed some light on the situation over at the nascent protocol.

He stated:

“SushiSwap doesn’t have a team, only community members. Anyone coding or writing or helping is part of the team. It’s seven persons in NYC vs. the World; I let you guess who is going to win. We think both SushiSwap & Uniswap can coexist, by the way.”

The rapidity with which SushiSwap has blazed into the crypto industry spotlight is part of the reason for much of the industry’s skepticism.

0xMaki explained:

“We just are assembling a plane while in the air. We shipped so much in four days. It is easy to prop up red flags when you have done nothing for the project. We are being audited by three firms and are on a partnership rampage. Look at hotdog finance if you want red flags.”

Hotdog is a new DeFi project whose price recently rose to $ 5,000 before collapsing more than 99% after its launch on September 2. It currently trades for less than a cent on Uniswap. Sushi, like many other financial assets this week, also saw a significant drop in value, but nothing close to the extent of the Hotdog’s pullback.

0xMaki went on to allege that the people building Sushi’s platform do not have any stake in the action:

“None have Sushi — 0. Nothing mined, bought, or sold. Only dev share for anyone joining us.”

Adam Cochran, the partner at Cinneamhain Ventures, posted several negative tweets concerning the Sushi project, warning the public of the situation around the developer fund.

0xMaki clarified that the project’s ultimate goal is to dish its developer funds to contributors in the form of grants:

“All of the payment of the grant is subject to change by what the community thinks is best. Aka, you could see a proposal being paid in stablecoins or a mix of Sushi and vested Sushi. We aren’t there, and there is so much to do. We are 4-5 days in. Everyone needs to chill and stop projecting what they would do if they had access to $26M. It’s very telling of their values. Audits will tell soon enough!”

SushiSwap underwent a full inspection from the PeckShield company shortly after that. While the company has outlined some issues, it did not return with any significant concerns regarding the security of the project. SushiSwap has also undergone a security review by Blockchain solution provider Quantstamp.

Quantstamp’s communications director, Jaye Harrill, has previously said:

“On the surface, SushiSwap looks like another nightly-built vegetable farm with endless APY launched by the anonymously named NomiChef. But looking deeper, we find a highly engaged community on discord genuinely discussing the growth of the very project they are invested in.”

Following SushiSwap’s lightning-fast development, the project’s exchange functions were tested to trade directly for a single asset pair – Sushi / USDT. The transition from Sushi to its platform from Uniswap has also received approval recently. Once completed, this will move almost $ 180 million from Uniswap to SushiSwap’s competitive platform.

While it looks like the project’s rising star, it remains to be seen whether the exchange is implementing its proposed intent. Until all issues are fully resolved, it is wise to expect users to be cautious in experimental and unpublished Blockchain projects.
