Tron’s Justin Sun Supports Net Neutrality Pledging a Donation of $10,000
Justin Sun, the founder and CEO of TRON has pledged a donation of $10,000 dollars to support net neutrality. The donation has been pledged to Donatefornetneutrality.com. This information has been released by the TRON Foundation in a medium post on November 1st.
With this donation, the fund will be able to educate voters in different districts to vote pro-net neutrality. At the same time, they will be working in order for these individuals to support lawmakers that want to reverse the decision that ended net neutrality.
This is not the first time that TRON decides to donate an important sum of money to a charity. In the past, TRON pledged $3 million dollars to the Blockchain Charity Foundation that is headed by Binance. Tron and Justin Sun aim at increasing the number of cryptocurrency individuals donating to different charitable causes with virtual currencies.
Mr Sun is also urging other users to start donating in this cause in favor of net neutrality. He explained that this is the responsibility of the community to protect these values at all times.
I support #netneutrality along with @EvangelineLilly @tmorello @doctorow @bassnectar and millions of people seeking to protect the Internet’s core values. When the Internet is free and open, it fosters innovation that benefits not just a few, but all of us! @fightfortheftr https://t.co/EnAPiXnmqQ

Justin Sun commented on the matter:
“Give my deep belief in an open and decentralized internet, I support donatefornetneurality.com and urge others to do the same in this critical moment where Congress can still act in favor of net neutrality. When the internet is free and open, it fosters innovation that benefits not just a few, but all of us. It’s our responsibility to protect these core values and push our community towards the cause.”
Evan Greer,deputy director of Fight for the Future, said that,
“Tron and BitTorrent are reliable allies in the fight for internet freedom and privacy. He said that these organizations were able to spread the word about net neutrality in difficult moments.”
Sun will also energize support from the BitTorrent community that reaches 100 million users worldwide. BitTorrent and uTorrent have been always working in favor of net neutrality, fightforthefuture.org and donatefornetneutrality.com.
With the incredible number of users that enjoy the platform, it is possible to gather an important amount of funds.
