Market

Chef Nomi, the creator of SushiSwap has just returned all $14 million that he cashed out last week after apologizing to the community. 

Not everyone blames Nomi for selling as the funds were never locked, however, some critics are saying that he only returned the funds because he got doxxed. SushiSwap is one of the most popular DeFi projects, forked from Uniswap. SUSHI reached a price of $10.29 with a market capitalization of $260 million, however, the scandal made the digital asset plummet down to $1. 

Industry

Crypto.com seems to be joining the DeFi hype train after announcing a liquidity swap platform similar to the one from Binance. The platform will be called DeFi Swap and will allow users to swap tokens and receive extra rewards from liquidity providing. 

Crypto.com CEO Kris Marszalek said: When we think of competition we tend to look at traditional financial institutions like banks and not other crypto startups.
