The chief expertise officer of the SushiSwap decentralized trade has revealed why the protocol is now not eager to scale utilizing layer two options from Optimistic Ethereum.
The layer two options supplier OΞ whitelisted a number of initiatives final yr together with Uniswap and Synthetix, granting them preferential entry to its platform because it was being constructed.
SushiSwap was additionally eager to get on this whitelist however it was not forthcoming, leading to a call to delay any additional growth. In its official documentation, Optimism clearly states “contract deployments to the Optimistic Ethereum mainnet are currently restricted by a whitelist.”
In a thread on Aug. 11 titled “Why Sushi isn’t coming to Optimism,” SushiSwap CTO Joseph Delong stated that being rebuffed for whitelisting means the protocol is not “super eager to deploy yet” on the layer two scaling platform
He cited “non-preferential treatment” as the reason after Sushiswap deployed the scaling solution to testnet and tried to negotiate with Optimism leadership.

He added that there was a protracted dialogue with a “lot of dancing around”, so that they lastly needed to ask whether or not SushiSwap, which was spawned from Uniswap as a clone in late August 2020, was going to be handled equally on deployment.
“That is when the team told us point blank that Uniswap ‘had to go first’. Meaning we were boxed out of deployment until Uniswap.”
The protocol is taking a wait-and-see method that prefers what he calls “credibly neutral platforms” like different layer two options supplier Arbitrum, which reportedly whitelists any project that requests it.
He added that he hoped the Sushi group helps this motion and implored different initiatives to do the identical “until Optimism makes any attempt at credible neutrality as an operator.”
Uniswap deployed its version 3 protocol on Optimism in mid-July with protocol founder Hayden Adams stating that the finish purpose was to totally meet the demand for low-cost, high-speed DEX buying and selling.
OΞ employs optimistic rollups which rely on publishing the information on the blockchain, assuming it’s already appropriate and permitting a problem interval. During this time, customers can submit “fraud proofs” to sign that the information is inaccurate, triggering a dispute that ought to lead to a correction of the information.
Ethereum influencer, Anthony Sassano, stated the information Sushi had been rebuffed in favor of Uniswap and others was disappointing, stating that he was solely long-term bullish on “credibly neutral and permissionless platforms”, earlier than including:
“There’s no place in this ecosystem for walled gardens — I hope the Optimism team rectifies this.”
Uniswap founder Hayden Adams then chimed in to defend the transfer to deploy to his DEX earlier than SushiSwap. He stated it wasK “Manufactured Twitter outrage. Not everything is a conspiracy lol. I don’t really see why it’s problematic to finish planned launches before taking on new ones.”
Optimistic Ethereum additionally defended its place and the whitelisting mechanism, responding:
“We are whitelisting projects as quickly as possible and still maintain the safety of an alpha system. Uniswap deployed ahead of Sushiswap because they engaged with us 1.5 years ago, long before Sushiswap. First in, first out is not ‘playing favorites’.”
Other DeFi protocols and exchanges, reminiscent of already whitelisted Synthetix, have already deployed to OΞ enabling their customers to get pleasure from high-speed, low-cost transactions on layer two. SushiSwap customers on the different hand could also be in for an extended wait.
