A few days ago, the control of the decentralised protocol SushiSwap was transferred from Chef Nomi to Sam Bankman Fried. This happened after the purported head of the SushiSwap protocol swapped all the developer Sushi funds to convert them into ETH after the token soared the $10 mark. On heavy inquiry from the Sushi community, Nomi said that his actions were somewhat similar to that of Litecoin’s founder. However, soon after the controls and keys were transferred to SBF, the value of the token rose by 10% in less than an hour. Currently, the token is valued at $2.30 and is down by 23% in the last 24 hours.

Some of the other voters are CMS Holdings crypto holding fund, Matthew Graham, the CEO Sino Global Capital and Mick Hagen, the founder of the Genesis Block.
The Platform Management Rights Would be Distributed Among 9 Top Candidates
The Sushiboard data revealed that the SushiSwap migration has been officially activated. SushiSwap’s new head has confirmed that the top 9 voters would receive multiple signatures and gradually, the controls of the platform would be transferred to them soon after the voting procedures come to an end. This means that the 9 candidates would have equal power as Chef Nomi and any activity or change in the SushiSwap platform requires 6 out of the 9 votes from these candidates.

The market capitalisation stands at $205 million and the trading volumes are equal to $373 million. The token was listed on the Binance Exchange on September 1st.
