Ethereum vs.TRON: The Plagiarism Scandal on The Surface Again

It is likely, the fresh graduate Justin Sun is reaping the harvest of his overpride.

Over the last few days, TRON has gained in value. And  at present it ranks the fourth coin behind Ethereum, Tether and Bitcoin, based on trading volume in the last 24h. Currently, TRX the ticker under TRON is trading at around $ 0.036 with a market cap of $2.4 billion.

The reason of the observed surge is the successful test net release which occurred as expected on  March 30. Add to that, the digital currency was listed on the largest korean exchange Bithumb.

Earlier this day, the new platform founder  and the second large cryptocurrency founder started a quarel.

It all begun when Sun provoked Buterin with a post on Twitter. The post lists 7 reasons that are believed to make TRON better than Ethereum, according to him.

“Why TRON is better than ETH 1. 10000TPS vs. 25TPS 2. zero fee vs. high fee 3. consistent Coinburn vs. no coinburn 4. Java vs. Solidity 5. strong extensibility vs. no ex. 6. 1 billion USD developers rewards vs. no plan 7. 100 million users vs. small number

In response to the tweet, Buterin trolled the guy for plagiarism by adding an 8th reason in a tweet:

“8. Better white paper writing capability (Ctrl+C + Ctrl+V much higher efficiency than keyboard typing new content).”

Noteworthy, earlier this year TRON’s white paper appeared to be plagiarized of two crypto projects.
