The tussle between Justin Sun, the founder and Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of the Tron Foundation, and Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum has been going on for quite some time now. Both the proponents of the crypto verse have verbally attacked each other and the functionalities of their respective cryptocurrencies earlier. The latest jibe came from Justin Sun, who claimed that he would build a shrine in memory of Ethereum. His tweet read:
“When #TRON succeed, we will build a monument in memory of #ethereum! @VitalikButerin will be remembered for his tremendous contribution in #blockchain industry! #TRX #BTT”
Many followers of Sun were agitated at his comment, with some asking him to “stop talking”, while others attacked the eleventh largest cryptocurrency by saying “Tron shitcoin”. Sameem, a Twitter user, claimed:
“Those crying for price increase are obviously the eager sellers! Not the true supporters. Weak hands waiting to exit will always loose.”
Sun’s comments came in the wake of Buterin stating that he will lose a certain amount of hope for humanity if Tron overtook Ethereum. Buterin was speaking about Ethereum losing its position in the space and stated that he was optimistic about new projects aiding the crypto-space. When asked about the “most promising competitor for Ethereum”, Buterin did not say Tron. He said:
“Dfinity. Dominic [Williams, the president and chief scientist of Dfinity] and I use the aspirational term ‘sister network.”
Justin Sun backed his statements on Tron being better than Ethereum using the latest DApp Weekly report. The report had stated:
“Both development cost and user fee on Tron are low. Low development cost is needless to say. Developers need to freeze tokens to get the resources needed for app development and the cost on Tron is much lower than that on EOS.
