The founder of DeFi Pulse, Scott Lewis, has taken it to Twitter to reveal that the founders of 1inch Exchange have been permanently banned from their spaces.
- In a Twitter thread shared an hour ago, the founder of the most popular DeFi monitoring resource, DeFi Pulse, has said that the founders of 1inch Exchange have been permanently banned from their spaces.
- Lewis details the reasons for this, which include threats of physical violence against himself, as well as “falsely doxxing a member of our team as criminal and asserting they were going to be arrested imminently.”
- The founder also said that 1inch has harassed numerous team members repeatedly and also violated “requests of no contact.”
- Lewis also said that:
Any community member or group of community members is welcome to maintain the 1inch listing on DeFi pulse, but for own safety we will not be interacting with the 1inch team.
- Earlier today, the platform’s official Twitter account accused Lewis of ignoring their project because he “is building a competitor project to our aggregator.”
Hey @defipulse! This is our official second request to list 1inch liquidity protocol on your service! #DeFi is about freedom and you shouldn’t ignore our project with more than $2B TVL just because your founder (Scott) is building a competitor project to our aggregator.

- Sergej Kunz, the Co-Founder, and CEO of 1inch, commented on Lewis twitter post as well:
WTF!? Threats of physical violence!? You mean ETHDenver2019 where I gave you my hand to forget everything what happened before and start a partnership? And you declined and said „let me alone..“? Your CTO attacked us with DoS, we just reported the details publicly to stop it.
- Lewis detailed that the above constitutes, among many others, “repeated violations of request for no contact.”
