Former Employees Call Tron Founder Justin Sun A “Clout-Chasing, Evil Genius,” He Says ‘The Best is Yet to Come'

“I have devoted myself to being a responsible, global citizen throughout my entire life, spending significant portions of my personal and professional life to activities promoting universal values of respect, liberty & equality,” tweeted Tron founder Justin Sun in his response to an article on The Verge that paints him in a really bad light.

The publication interviewed several former and current employees of Tron, one of whom called him “an evil genius.”

Covering Tron, whose whitepaper was “cribbed off” of Ethereum’s and follows the business strategy of “get the pump on the coin,” the article lays down how the free Tron Network’s most successful part is gambling apps in which people lost their “life savings.”

In response, Tron’s San Francisco office also received letters from the Better Business Bureau in “piles.”

And as we all know it, it's not the technology that’s the cornerstone of Sun’s business but marketing.

“He thrived on just doing anything for attention and clout,” said a former employee about Sun bidding for Warren Buffett’s lunch that he won for $4.57 million. “Clout-chasing, as the kids call it.”

Sun’s first success was an app called Peiwo, which bordered on ‘aural pornography’ and got booted from the Apple and Android app stores and shut down by the Chinese authorities for content that “disrupts socialist values.”

Sun reportedly hit his employees too. The violence led Lucasz Juraszek, a software engineer, to file an IC3 complaint with the cybercrime division at the FBI, for which he never received a response.

“There is no merit to the false claims,” said Sun in his tweet today, adding, “the dispute is currently pending in arbitration. We believe the decision will speak for itself.”

“I take great pride in working with its global team of talented contributors and developers to build one of the greatest decentralized blockchain protocols,” said Sun.

His other product BT Live had been reportedly looking to be “a porn app so it can get around the Chinese censorship laws and Great Firewall.” And for that, Sun wanted to exploit the BitTorrent protocol, which he acquired last year because the peer-to-peer sharing platform is hard to track down and shut down.

“There’s no bottom to how low he’s willing to go to achieve his goals,” a former employee said. “He doesn’t care about anybody. He doesn’t care about anything.”
