It is no secret that Tron (TRX) and Ethereum (ETH) are two fierce competitors. It is also no secret that Tron is having an edge in the competition lately. Now, the founder of the Tron Foundation, Justin Sun, has made a new jab at Ethereum and its creator Vitalik Buterin.
So far, both sides have attacked each other and the main functionalities of their crypto ecosystems, but the latest attack came from Sun, who claimed that he would build a shrine “in memory of Ethereum”.
According to him, when Tron succeeds in defeating the competition, the community will build a monument in memory of the other network and Vitalik Buterin will be remembered for his contributions to the industry.
Sun affirmed that Tron is better than ETH and that the fees are lower, which means that the development costs are low as well. Also, Tron offers bandwidth to the users and simply has better tech. Finally, he said that it was not a question of “if” but “when” they would surpass ETH.
Comment Was An Answer To Buterin
In fact, this comment was an answer to an affirmation that Vitalik Buterin recently made. According to him, he would lose a certain amount of hope in humanity in case Tron ever overtook Ethereum. He also affirmed that he was optimistic about new projects and affirmed that Tron was not Ethereum’s main competitor.
According to Buterin, the real main competitor of ETH would actually be Dfinity, which is a “sister network” of Ethereum, as he and Williams, the president of Dfinity call it.
How The Community Reacted To Sun’s New Jab
A lot of people got very angry with Justin Sun. Some users told him to shut up while others remained considerably skeptic that TRX will ever surpass ETH and called it a “shitcoin”. However, some people were actually very enthusiastic as well and pledged support for Tron.
Justin Sun has also recently affirmed that he does not expect ETH to be ever ready for its proof of stake protocol change and cited constant conflicts between miners and developers as a reason for why ETH’s ultimate goal would actually be a failure.
Recently, Justin Sun was able to get a million followers on Twitter, but it looks like a third of his followers are fake. However, some reports affirmed that a third is not really a very high number of fake followers, which is actually pretty impressive.
