The unending saga between Sun and Buterin has surfaced again as Mr. Sun made a tweet today that compares their number of followers on Twitter.
Nevertheless, it seems the bromance between both crypto-giants will forever surface. Ethereum’s creator, Vitalik Buterin, made some clarifications concerning BitTorrent lately; Tron’s CEO, Justin Sun, has also come up with his own comments that directly point to Buterin.
Sun had a caption of his and Buterin’s Twitter page that showcased and compared both Twitter followers. He also added this to the caption:
“Now we are both 832k.”
That is not all; Sun also emphasized that he started six years after Buterin and that he has caught up with the Ethereum creator in the crypto-space. In Tron CEO’s words,
“We started six years after you but we always know it is never too late.”
As expected, Sun’s tweet has sparked lots of comments not only in the Tron community but in the crypto-space generally.
A Twitter user who goes by the name SM Airdrops (also a crypto-enthusiasts) said this:
“@justinsuntron I watch the market, I see how the manipulations are made. And with the fact that your network is growing rapidly, I can say with confidence that TRX is the future leader in terms of percentage growth in the coming years. @vitalikButerin and ETH will be number 2.”
Vitalik Buterin has been in the crypto-space for quite some time now as the founder and creator of Ethereum blockchain, which is one of the top-cryptocurrencies without any doubts. Buterin has acknowledged BitTorrent’s work as an app as a “mega time success.”
Coming back to our story, in just a few hours after Justin Sun’s tweet, Misha Lederman, the co-founder of IAmDecentralized.org and known Tron supporter, posted this on his Twitter page:
“That didn’t take too long…The founder of #TRON @justinsun has, after starting his twitter page 6 years after @VitalikButerin, now surpassed #Etherum’s co-founder in followers. It’s a testimony of new vs. old & the hunger in the #crypto space for progress #IAmDecentralized”
Misha Lederman’s tweet showed that Sun now has more followers than Buterin.
At the moment, the top three decentralized apps on DappRadar.com are all powered by Tron. Other apps that follow are based on EOS. Misha Lederman posted this on the 8th of February,
“To think #TRX has been able to dominate the DApp world so quickly, in under 4 months since activation of Tron Virtual Machine on Oct 12, is nothing short of remarkable.”
More interestingly, Buterin has made no comment or reply concerning Sun’s tweet, but it’s certain he will as he is known for his out-of-the-box sense of humor.
It is essential to know that no feud or war is going on between Tron and Ethereum. In fact, both Sun and Buterin have a cordial relationship. Additionally, regardless of whatever is going on, both digital assets are doing well these days, despite the bear market.
Ethereum managed to take back the second spot from Ripple’s XRP a few hours ago, while BitTorrent token campaign is having a success that’s been hardly witnessed before.
