- Yearn Finance founder Andre Cronje faces backlash for a blog post on the woes of a developer in the De-Fi space.
- Uniswap growth lead, Ashleigh Schap calls out his hypocrisy and bashes Cronje’s negative comments.
- Hayden Adams, Uniswap inventor reminds users that Uniswap has never been down since its initial release in 2018.
Yearn Finance founder Andre Cronje published a blog post on 12th January grumbling about the De-Fi workspace. This invoked the wrath of Uniswap’s growth lead, Ashleigh Schap who called out his hypocrisy on Twitter.
Cronje says that coding for De-Fi is hard. He states that any work developers put in will simply be used by other brands through a fork. Thereby, using someone else’s work to make a profit.
Ashleigh Schap counters by bringing up Yearn Finance’s latest merger with SushiSwap. The latter forked its code from Uniswap and siphoned over $1 billion in liquidity from them.
5/ One of your complaints is that anyone can steal your work in defi. And yet YFI chooses to partner with Sushi. When a legit dapp validates a stolen dapp buy partnering, it just encourages that kind of behavior. Maybe keep that in mind for your next project.

Furthermore, Yearn Finance has merged with a total of six other notable De-Fi protocols last year. These include Akropolis, Bounce Finance, Cover Protocol, Cream Finance, Deriswap, and Pickle Finance.
Schap goes on to drag Cronje by saying that working in the De-Fi community has been nothing but rewarding for Uniswap so far. She says if coders work smart then they won’t have a hard time like Cronje.
Uniswap Protocol inventor, Hayden Adams reminds users via Twitter that Uniswap has never once been down since its initial launch in 2018.
