I am confused. That’s the first thing. There has been a lot of chaos going on at DFI in the last couple of days and there is a lot to unpack here, so settle in. First off, who is DFI? That is actually a harder question to answer than I originally thought. It also isn’t the same answer as it was a few days ago.
I don’t have a lot of details, and no one really wants to talk on the record beyond a carefully drafted statement but it appears that the CEO we know and love, BigButta or Scott, is out and Chris from FlexPool is now in charge. It seems he has purchased Scott’s stake in the company and is now CEO. Scott has put out a statement on Reddit here:
I spoke to Scott briefly, and he said that he was happy for his time with DFI and that he was perusing an exciting new project, not in the Chia ecosystem. I also spoke to Chris2/BigBroChris in his BigBroChris persona but he hasn’t answered any questions and I am not sure when he will get back to me, its obviously a busy day for him. I will update here when he does. I don’t really know what’s going on here, but I feel like there is more to this story. This seems like an awful lot of drama in a very short amount of time for a company that was on top of the ecosystem just a short time ago. J. Eckert of Chia Network has even revised his statement on DFI on reddit to be significantly less supportive. So if anyone has any information they would like to share with me anonymously you can find me in my discord, or by email at [email protected].
