Solend Founder Explains Alameda’s ‘Puzzling Behavior’ During IDO

Luther stated his experience Alameda Research, owned by Bankman-Fried, took place during Solend’s initial dex offering (IDO).

According to him, Alameda was in Sollendo’s seed round. Their actions, he interpreted, meant they wanted to support a Solana-based lending protocol. However, the trading company has taken a series of “embarrassing actions” that have hindered the protocol’s growth.

At the top of Solend’s first dex offering (IDO), Lueter notes that over $100 million has been raised by the protocol, with a fully diluted value (FDV) roughly the same as the famous DeFi protocol Aave. I continued.

However, Solend used a mango-style IDO that allowed users to deposit or withdraw on the first day and only on the second. On day two, just minutes before the IDO ended, the protocol pulled him $80 million. So we were only able to raise $26 million.

The founder of Solend said on-chain data revealed that Alameda Research managed two accounts that initially deposited $40 million each and then deleted $80 million at the end. .

Alameda’s move effectively meant that the price of the token increased as the initial high FDV scared other investors into investing in the protocol. Router goes on to say that these actions “make sense if you remember Alameda is a profit maxi hedge fund (he just calls it a VC because it’s profitable).”

Mr. Luther said:

“Alameda’s actions reflect the ideology of the SBF. Gain absolves all sin. The ends justify the means. Effective altruism.”
