Who created DFI.Money or Yearn Finance II (YFII)?

Both DFI.Money (YFII) and Yearn Finance (YFI) are created by a South African coder, named Andre Cronje who has contributed to more than 25 DeFi projects. In July 2020, mining and farming of yearn.finance’s YFI token ended, and a proposal to protect liquidity provision from whales earned 80% support among protocol participants. However, it was not adopted due to yEarn Improvement Proposal #8 (YIP-8) which proposed to prolong the minting of the platform utility token YFI by another 2 months and with a weekly-halving emission curve was rejected and also because not meeting yearn.finance’s requisite 33% quorum requirement. As a result, a group of users opted to hard fork the protocol to create DFI.MONEY, with its own token, YFII.
