DefiLlama is facing internal dispute as team members are facing what could be an impending token release. It’s a move that is apparently the behest of a lone co-founder, and to the dismay of most of the core DefiLlama team. Now, the creators of one of defi’s most impactful dashboards have made a sudden change.
The result is the creation of Llama.fi, a dashboard that many might find familiar. It’s the new iteration from the core DefiLlama team that has no interest in releasing a token.
DefiLlama & The Token Perspective
The dialogue really came to light when 0xngmi, the leading face of DefiLlama, suddenly announced the ‘fork’ of the product on Sunday:
The DefiLlama team is forking Defillama@Defillama is undergoing a hostile takeover
There is an ongoing attempt to launch a token that does not represent us. We don't want to be associated with it
Use and @llamadotfi instead!

0xngmi also added an etherscan transaction to confirm the information was not the result of a Twitter hack.
