Recently, the media Rekt.news came with unexpected accusations against Fantom Opera, a team 1 blockchain, after business technical consultant Andre Cronje and senior solution architect Anton Nell announced that they would leave the crypto area completely. Almost immediately, there were concerns in the community after Neil tweeted: “There are about 25 apps and services that we will discontinue on April 3, 2022.” In a now deleted Rekt article, she claimed the following:
“Phantom, Solidly, SpookySwap, Abracadabra, Geist: several projects are intertwined in a system designed to take advantage of a small group of insiders who are now slowly disappearing from the scene.”
On Friday, however, the Fantom Foundation released a statement claiming “factual inaccuracies”, “false allegations” and “misinformation” from Rekt’s article. In particular, the Phantom Foundation stated:
“Andrey and Anton” did not “complete” 25 projects, instead any involvement (as a user interface) in these projects had to be transferred to existing teams, many of which were developed and run independently.
In addition, the foundation clarified that neither Cronje nor Nell were the main developers of Fantom and that the organization itself was not involved in the creation of any of the 25 projects involved (including but not limited to Yearn.finance). Partly due to the couple’s departure, the total value listed on the Phantom appears to have dropped to $ 8.27 billion from $ 11.26 billion on Sunday. The blockchain has processed over 200 million transactions with over 2 million active wallets since its inception.
