The tussle between Justin Sun, the founder and Chief Executive Officer [CEO] of the Tron Foundation, and Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum has been going on for quite some time now. Both the proponents of the crypto verse have verbally attacked each other and the functionalities of their respective cryptocurrencies earlier. The latest jibe came from Justin Sun, who claimed that he would build a shrine in memory of Ethereum. His tweet read:

“When #TRON succeed, we will build a monument in memory of #ethereum! @VitalikButerin will be remembered for his tremendous contribution in #blockchain industry! #TRX #BTT”

Many followers of Sun were agitated at his comment, with some asking him to “stop talking”, while others attacked the eleventh largest cryptocurrency by saying “Tron shitcoin”. Sameem, a Twitter user, claimed:



“Those crying for price increase are obviously the eager sellers! Not the true supporters. Weak hands waiting to exit will always loose.”

Sun’s comments came in the wake of Buterin stating that he will lose a certain amount of hope for humanity if Tron overtook Ethereum. Buterin was speaking about Ethereum losing its position in the space and stated that he was optimistic about new projects aiding the crypto-space. When asked about the “most promising competitor for Ethereum”, Buterin did not say Tron. He said:

“Dfinity. Dominic [Williams, the president and chief scientist of Dfinity] and I use the aspirational term ‘sister network.”

Justin Sun backed his statements on Tron being better than Ethereum using the latest DApp Weekly report. The report had stated:

“Both development cost and user fee on Tron are low. Low development cost is needless to say. Developers need to freeze tokens to get the resources needed for app development and the cost on Tron is much lower than that on EOS. In the meantime, Tron offers free bandwidth and energy to users, and the resources are renewed each day. Comparatively speaking, Tron’s user fee is significantly lower as well.”

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.”
