The Fantom basis has turned its attention towards DeFi use cases with the assistance of Yearn Finance founder Andre Cronje, who serves as a technical consultant to Fantom.

Nell and Cronje left Fantom in Mar 2022 with a mildly to say it as a scandal.
Anton tweeted on 06 March: “Andre and I have decided that we are closing the chapter of contibuting to the defi/crypto space. There are around ~25 apps and services that we are terminating on 03 April 2022. Most notably: yearn.fi, keep3r.network, multichain.xyz, chainlist.org, solidly.exchange, bribe.crv.finance. Unlike previous building in defi sucks rage quits, this is not a knee jerk reaction to the hate received from releasing a project, but a decision that has been coming for a while now. Thanks you to everyone that supported us over the past few years.”
