Fantom Fork. Building in the open in DeFi means anyone can fork your code and launch a new version of your protocol. This is exactly what happened after Aave released their UI to the community as it was worked and deployed on Fantom. As is usually the case, digging past the original Tweet unveils some quality alpha.
