- Yearn Finance’s Andrew Cronje shared a negative tweet about Chainlink and Polygon.
- He accused both protocols’ supporters of being overly hostile and using “cancel tactics”.
- Cronje’s tweet will likely have long-lasting effects on the crypto sphere.
Cronje somewhat boldly accuses both Chainlink and Polygon’s supporters to use “cancel tactics” against users who criticize their platforms. With regard to this, he notes that if a certain community can’t discuss flaws, they might be “in for a bad time in the long run”.
The Twitter community’s reactions varied on many levels. Some directly opposed the thought and some agreed to various extents. A lot of them also shared other crypto communities which shared the same qualities. The founder later responded to his earlier tweet and asked if Rune should be added to the list.
From the comments, it seems Rune should be included in this list as well. So Rune, Link, and Matic?

As such, it seemed that most were just following the thread to ‘enjoy the show’.

Many users also replied with popular memes. However, if anything, this shows a recurring sentiment in the coder’s life. Last year, soon after the release of YFI, Yearn Finance’s governance token, Cronje shared grievances in an interview and called the crypto community toxic.
I just don’t get it, man. So sick and tired of this space. Nothing has changed.
Not just this, but on his personal blog, he’s shared two different posts almost 12 months apart related to this. Titled “Building in DeFi sucks” and “Building in DeFi sucks (Part 2)”, both posts are heavy with disclaimers about there being both good and bad in an industry, etc. He also says in both posts that the purpose is “to rant” which he finds “therapeutic”. Still, it seems the young developer is finding it hard to deal with how hostile crypto supporters can be.
As one of the most influential people in the DeFi space, Cronje’s tweet will likely have lasting effects on the crypto sphere. Since the post, he’s been sharing interesting responses for his followers to see.
