The feud between Tron [TRX]’s Justin Sun and Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin seems to have escalated with the two bigwigs of the cryptoverse going at it at on Twitter. The latest retorts were initiated by Sun when he had called out Buterin by tweeting:
Vitalik: next wave of crypto is not going to be built on hype.@VitalikButerin admits that #ETH lead the 2017 bull run built on hype. #TRON will lead next bull run built on massive adoption dapps and @BitTorrent . #TRX $TRXhttps://t.co/svKJBWyQKq

Justin Sun has always made the news with his comments on Ethereum [ETH], with the CEO urging users multiple times to ditch the ETH network and switch to Tron.
The Tron Foundation official based his comments on Vitalik’s earlier comments when had stated in an interview that the next wave of crypto adoption is not going to be built on hype. He had said:
“Every time I come here, the space definitely keeps growing, and at this point, it’s looking like it’s just huge, you know. There’s just people in all of the different universities get interested in the technology, seeing the interest from just all the sheer number of companies that are based here.”
Sun’s direct collision with the Ethereum was not left unnoticed by Vitalik, who called Sun a “self identified shill” and even added that Sun was not worth listening to. Sun, who is very active on Twitter did not take the comments lying down, rebutting:
“We can talk about the dollar sign after the day #ETH reaches 2 million Txs per day, which I think will never happen. 😊#TRON”
The war of words between the two have long been an eye-catching engagement for users and holders in the cryptocurrency space. Sun never fails to mention Tron’s achievement and makes it a point to inform users that Tron has surpassed Ethereum in terms of daily transactions.
Tron had also received a boost recently when it enjoyed a sudden bullish spike of 6%, threatening to overtake Monero on the cryptocurrency charts. The rise came in the wake of Justin Sun’s comments on the framework of the company. He had said:
“BitTorrent is popular in 138 countries. So its very important that we find a solution like a payment channel that all the country it’s the same. Right now, the banking system and all this payment channel is fragile.”
