The competition between Tron’s Justin Sun and Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin is not a secret to anyone in the crypto space.
Now, Sun thanked Buterin for an older tweet from back in October 2017.
Buterin was praising BitTorrent before Tron bought it
In the latest series of pokes between the two crypto creators, Sun highlighted that Buterin praised BitTorrent as the first example of a truly successful decentralized application when Sun had not bought it yet.
As you all know by now, Sun bought BitTorrent back in the summer of 2018 for $140 million.
In the comments section, Sun’s followers also poked Buterin, as expected, but not everyone seemed against him.
For instance, someone said: “Not defending @VitalikButerin here, but don’t you see the irony here that BitTorrent was a decentralized system until @justinsuntron comes &buys it to centralize it & issues legally questionable tokens – and then he brags how decentralized it is with tokens he printed &controls.”
