The CEO of blockchain start-up Tron has been a very active crypto founder on Twitter. Justin Sun stays in contact with Tron users extensively, and the cryptocurrency community through his Twitter account. Yesterday, a famous crypto trader Josh Rager accused him of buying 5000 to 6000 twitter followers daily.
Twitter is one of the biggest social media platforms that is being used by thousands of firms and individuals to promote their businesses and products. Similarly, cryptocurrency start-ups are primarily attracted to Twitter, and it is an excellent place of attention for crypto enthusiasts.
Justin Sun’s account has proliferated over the short time, and rumors have taken place that TRON’s CEO has been buying followers on Twitter. With heavily criticized by crypto users online and even TRX users, Sun hasn’t developed a decent image at all. As it seems, making big announcements with no surety has hurt the image of the owner of Tron. And this could be a reason that analysts and crypto users are accusing Sun of buying followers on Twitter.
Mr. Sun remains one of the most prominent figures on Twitter representing crypto and blockchain technology with full enthusiasm. However, the question arises that are most of his followers fake, or is it just a rumor?
Yesterday, during the announcement of Tron Virtual Machine’s first-anniversary celebration on Twitter by Justin Sun, a famous crypto trader and co-founder of blockroots.com, Josh Rager replied to Sun’s tweet saying that the CEO has been buying Twitter followers. Not only he accused Sun of that, but he also displayed a chart and explained it with stats that how Sun has been increasing his followers.
Looks like you're still buying 5,000 to 6,000 followers per day
My favorite stat is how you went from losing net-negative followers per month to gaining 5k followers daily like clock work in late 2018
You're such a meme

The famous crypto trader and analyst, Rager mentioned that it looks like that the followers are increasing by a margin of 5K to 6K each day. The crypto trader made a harsh statement about Justin Sun as he said: “I feel sorry for Tron investors.”
As per critics, the critical aspect that looks to turn these allegations into reality is that Sun hasn’t responded to the claims. And that’s what makes it questionable that TRON’s CEO may be rigging with Twitter followers.
Few users on agreed with the Rager’s opinion; however, others disagreed to this and mentioned the rise of followers is just typical behavior of crypto network that users (followers) come and go. Few claimed the increase in the number of followers is because of the number of transactions being sustained on the Sun-led blockchain.
Justin Sun may be hated for many reasons, but still, he is one of the prominent crypto figures, and his network Tron is a widely known crypto ecosystem. Currently, he has a followership of almost 1.7 million, one of the top followed crypto figures on social media. Let’s hope Sun comes up with an explanation on this and clears the FUD around Tron, which looks to be a tough task for him right now.
