With Tron’s “independence day” soon approaching and Justin Sun constantly tweeting about new partnerships and supports that they have been getting from more than 20+ exchanges, Vitalik Buterin also seems to be excited about all the hustle and bustle that’s been happening among the Tron community.

Yesterday, Justin Sun tweeted a screen-shot of what looked like a group conversation, where Vitalik Buterin has written:

“I personally do hope that pension funds stay out of investing in crypto on a large scale at this point; if I was a 70 year old grandma I would be very upset if I learned that my retirement plan was invested in TRON.”

Sun replied to this conversation since Buterin had specifically mentioned “TRON” in his text.

This is not the first time that Sun and Buterin have exchanged a pleasant conversation over social media. Two months ago, Justin Sun had put up a post on Twitter mentioning 7 reasons why Tron is better than Ethereum, which mentions:

  1. 10000TPS vs. 25TPS
  2. Zero fee vs. high fee
  3. Consistent Coinburn vs. no coinburn
  4. Java vs. Solidity
  5. Strong extensibility vs. no ex.
  6. 1 billion USD developers reward vs. no plan
  7. 100 million users vs. a small number

To this, Vitalik replied with a probable 8th reason “Better white paper writing capability (Ctrl+C + Ctrl+V much higher efficiency than keyboard typing new content)”.

This noticeably attracted a lot of attention from Twitter users, some supporting Tron and some impressed with Vitalik.

Drew Wise, Co-founder of Team Tronics [TRON community SR candidate] commented:

“The #ETH network is slower than my 70 year old grandma, id sure hope she would invest into #TRON Competition is good, keeps each other on their toes.”

Nico, a Twitter user commented:



“Vitalik ,which weed are you smoking?are you mining weed now?”

Joe O, another Twitter user commented:

“Low blow comments just solidify that the threat is real! @etherumkiller”

Rahul Sharma, a crypto enthusiast, and Twitter user commented:

“Vitalk knows TRX will stop using erc20..some mining cash gonna stop coming .so he is upset.. that’s all. 100x days might not come back until 2022”

Bitcoin’s [BTC] biggest threat is its users, not governments, says Bitcoin.org’s Cobra

Bitcoin [BTC], the world’s largest cryptocurrency, saw a significant surge earlier this month, helping the coin break strong resistance at $5,000 and $5,200. Following the great fall of the king coin in early 2018, the Bitcoin ecosystem was struggling with scalability and technological issues, eventually leading to the hard fork.

Bitcoin.org’s Cobra, who is also the co-owner of Bitcointalk.org, has always maintained that Bitcoin was the cryptocurrency to look out for through his various Twitter bouts with prominent personalities in the cryptoverse. Due to his strong, unbridled support for Bitcoin, he has often trashed altcoins for their low market dominance.

In a new Twitter thread, Cobra spoke about the “biggest threat” to the Bitcoin ecosystem. Even though many crypto-enthusiasts believe that governments and technological issues were the biggest threats to the king coin, Cobra had a completely different opinion.

According to the Bitcoin maximalist, users have the potential to signal Bitcoin’s doom. His tweet read,

Though most Bitcoin supporters usually support his opinions, this tweet was met with a lot of resistance. Twitterati swarmed the thread in an attempt to prove him wrong. A user named @MrHodl alleged that this could not be true as Bitcoin had “no community.” He added that this, in turn, prevented toxicity in the ecosystem.

Cobra replied to the tweet stating,



“I think there is a community, it’s just not fully representative of everyone with a stake in Bitcoin. Most holders are quiet and not too familiar with what’s going on. There’s people with 1000+ BTC and they don’t engage at all with discussion platforms, just lurk.”

Some Twitter users took it as an attack on Bitcoin investors and opposed Cobra’s stance. A user @CarstenBKK commented,

“Maybe I am lost in translation. What do you wanna tell us? That you are part of Bitcoin network of people owning/using it, but you are just disgusted by the idea, that the network is called community in the sense of direct human collaboration and affection to the groups ideals?”

Previously, Cobra had accused Twitter’s Jack Dorsey and Square Crypto of pandering to Bitcoin users, while also suggesting that the crypto project was merely a way to bring in more users for Dorsey’s CashApp. His tweet read,

“Gotta respect how hard @sqcrypto is pandering to Bitcoiners. Very clever how @Jack has embedded himself in the community; in return the community promotes @CashApp, which gives that service a small but dedicated and activist group of early users.”
