@AndreCronjeTech renounces the distribution model that made him a DeFi superstar:
We've been critical of the "governance token" language too. Sometimes we call them "growth tokens," especially early on
Because that's the real purpose in the beginning
Also agree that the "community" language is somewhat silly.
I don't know if Cronje would agree but I think it's a bit Orwellian
Do y'all believe I wasn't lying when I reported that he told me he was quitting last year?

He's more than a little ambivalent about this whole scene
In my opinion this post squares pretty well with the profile I wrote of Cronje at the end of 2020
The larger point of that profile was: he's always looking at the door
Which is his prerogative! But it's worth folks knowing even as they lionize him

Before folks start in on the "exit scam" narrative about @bytemaster7 ... the man delivered the EOSIO software as promised and then stuck around two more years
Not really sure how anyone could call that a rug pull
Also everybody loving the current DAO renaissance should note that most folks credit Larimer (and Charles Hoskinson, also, I think) for first articulating the concept of a DAO
Further, as I understand it, @block_one_ is Blumer's company, not Larimer's
So it's not @bytemaster7's responsibility to stay forever
