Crypto Convo Starter Post Creates Vitalik Buterin Response about Tron and Avocados Metaphor
It’s no hidden fact that Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin and Tron founder Justin Sun doesn’t see eye to eye and leave no chance to verbally attacking each other or their pet projects. This has been going on for forever!
Cue in, Avocado Metaphors
The latest drama started when a Tron enthusiast pointed out Buterin praising BitTorrent that has Sun trying to understand, “why he is so obsessed with BitTorrent? I don't understand,” as we reported.
This had Buterin spurred to action as he said the interview where he praised BitTorrent has been from 2017 while Tron acquired the biggest file-sharing platform in 2018, so his praise for BitTorrent in no way extends to Tron while further adding
“This is like implying that because I like avocados, I approve of everyone who has ever bought an avocado.”
Buterin had criticized Tron on numerous occasions for plagiarising its Whitepaper and not long back called it a “trash.”
Well, Sun wasn’t the one not to get one on Buterin:
We all love avocados. I acquired all avocado farms and reached to monopoly. Now if you still love avocados you have to listen to me. However, I am happy to give you free avocados for sure!

Buterin Goes “Mean Girl”
We criticise him a lot, but at least Vitalik:
– Was involved with bitcoin from almost the beginning (Justin is a rando noob, Tron is an obvious scam)
– Praised BitTorrent as a protocol (p2p) that demonstrates censorship resistance of decentralised networks, not as a company https://t.co/mQPWIXqRFP

Tron enthusiast J didn’t agree and commented to Whalepool:
“Being an early developer means precisely nothing. You keep saying alts are scams but the reality is they all have useful features. Adoption is everything. 100m active users > all erc20 tokens.”
It didn't just stop here, No! Sun had his avocado laced “Lambo” to show off while offering a free ride to Vitalik,
“I finally received my custom made lambo! You want a ride Vitalik Buterin?”
Well as this Twitter user commented Sun is not taking the Prom rejection very well:
“There’s “bantering” and then there’s straight “bullying” and you’re getting to that point with Vitalik Buterin. We get it, you have an obsession with him like he refused to go to prom with you, but enough is enough. Go run your company.”
This was where Buterin got really pissed of and give a mean one to Sun as he commented this GIF,
Looks like High School drama just got real and mean! Stay tuned, we will provide all the updates as the drama unfolds!
