On May 30th, John McAfee, the official head of the ‘we love making outlandish statements’ club, posted on his twitter saying that the TRON network is one of the very few teams attempting to ensure trust in their users by giving back to the entire crypto community.
John McAfee’s “War on Crypto” campaign started with the cryptocurrency exchange ‘SmartPayMINT’ who had previously posted a photo of fiat currency with McAfee’s face on it, which eventually made him all the way more popular in the crypto-network.
The TRON community has gained several of its supporters by remaining one of the top crypto networks before its official mainnet launch that was scheduled for today. With more number of investors and data engineers working together to create the most trusted platform.
One Twitter user, John Geraci, replied to his tweet saying:
“I’ve been following them for a year now and believe they are the real deal. Thanks for sharing.”
TRON provides one of the most scalable operating systems in the world with its blockchain technology. They also have the feature of smart contracts for crowdfunding and issuing more digital assets as a consequence. It enables users with large-scale data transmission with more than 10,000 transactions per second.
Controversial enough, his recent tweet says:
“If you are in the Tron community, vote for @teamtronics. Why? Because they are one of the few teams attempting to give back to the crypto community. Also, there are a couple of beautiful women on the team who promised to send me their phone numbers. So vote for them or else!!”

Binance Chain’s ‘decentralization’ questioned by Bitcoin enthusiast; calls Binance DEX just an app
Udi Wertheimer, an independent developer and a “Bitcoiner” posted a series of tweets taking a jab at Binance Chain, which is slated to launch on April 23.
According to Wertheimer’s tweets, Binance has not updated the “source code” or “binaries” for the Binance Chain; and despite enquiring about it on the official telegram group of Binance, he was offered any source code.
If anyone’s wondering, the source code for “Binance Chain” full nodes is still nowhere to be found; 4 days before “mainnet” launch, and after multiple “projects” promised to migrate from Ethereum. Without ever seeing the source code.https://t.co/MuiRN23eDS

He said that Binance recommended users, who want to migrate tokens to Binance chain, use the official SDK, which will be done via official HTTP API using Binance’s trusted servers. Binance DEX, which will make use of the Binance Chain, also has no source code or binaries which are open source. He stated:
“There’s almost nothing there. So I looked for the source code. Guess what, THERE’S NO SOURCE CODE. They only have binaries, and only for a light client, no full node at all!”
He commented on the Binance Chain and the Dex that all Binance did was release an “app that connects to the API of your new centralized infrastructure”. In addition, the “Light Node” is a program that helps users access and interact with the Binance Chain in a secure and decentralized manner; the source code for which is “closed source” according to Wertheimer.
Wertheimer further added:
“Just releasing the binaries won’t be enough, and there’s no indication I could find anywhere that they intend to release the source code, like, ever. In any case, regardless of what may happen in the future, what’s released so far amounts to nothing more than a new website.”
A Twitter user, @bag_holder commented:
“Lol seems like a very Chinese thing to do. “BORROW” IP, make some edits, then keep it to oneself”
Another Twitter user, @thecryptostefan commented:
“There’s a branch with the full node implementation, no? I thought they just hadn’t merged it to master yet when I was looking last night. I think it’s the prerelease branch or one of those.”
