The Creators

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.

Governance of DFI.Money or Yearn Finance II (YFII)

During the bootstrap phase of YFII, the developers have chosen to use a multi-signature governance model where power is shared between 11 signatories. For a resolution to be passed and enforced, 7 out of the 11 signatories need to approve the action using a gnosis vault. This is a temporary measure that improves the speed of contract deployment whilst power is transitioned to the YFII governance DAO (YFII voters get to vote on what to implement).
