Tron Foundation Attempts Hostile TRX Subreddit Takeover, Receives Immediate Flak By Members
Tron Foundation Takes Over The TRX Subreddit And Receives Immediate Flak For Its Decision
As things stand, Tron is currently the eleventh largest cryptocurrency by total market capitalization today. Additionally, over the course of the past few months, the currency has been surging but has failed to break into the top-10 despite incurring some impressive gains.
In this regard, many of our readers might be aware of the fact that the Tron Foundation (TF) has recently been promoting its native token offering (TRX) quite aggressively all over the internet — so much so that Justin Sun and TF recently took over the r/tronix subreddit claiming that the move would make it easier for TRON enthusiasts to receive updates and other important news associated with this project.
However, as was to be expected, as soon as the Tron Foundation announced its decision to take over TRX’s community sub, a number of backers took to different social media platforms so as to voice their displeasure with the move.
More On The Matter
In the wake of the aforementioned developments, a spokesperson for the Tron Foundation released a statement (primarily for TRX’s Reddit community) claiming that they were looking to work closely with their project backers — with TRON only assuming the responsibility of being the top moderator for the thread.
“As they will be a direct representation of the Tron Foundation, it was explained that they could not risk the top mod going rogue and steer the community into misinformation or scams, especially if the community thought the sub was was being supported by Tron.”
As mentioned earlier, this news did not go down well with the masses and quite quickly a lot of TRX supporters started claiming that this was just a smart way of centralizing power for the firm — particularly in relation to curbing dissent and negative news related to the project.
In closing out this piece, it should be mentioned that the TRON Foundation’s latest decision to control their community subreddit is being viewed with a lot of skepticism. It now remains to be seen what the future holds for all of the involved parties.
