Rivalries and competition in cryptocurrency and blockchain seem to have just begun but if one looks at the way Vitalik Buterin of Ethereum and Justin Sun of Tron exchange verbal punches with each other on social media, makes one feel this is been an age-old battle. In a latest “bout” Justin Sun of Tron has asked D-apps to use Tron MainNet instead of Ethereum’s to deploy their D-apps.
Tron 100 x faster than Ethereum claims Sun
The recent tweets surfaced when Afri Schoedon, a developer based in Berlin, Germany who claims himself to be a blockchain minimalist tweeted asking D App developers to stop using Ethereum to deploy their D-apps as it is running out of capacity. This was pointed at Ethereum’s scalability issues which blockchain is facing with. He suggested to use Ethereum Classic or POA Network or whatever else is available and bridge important stuff as these networks currently have plenty of capacity and are also well supported by tools like MyCrypto, MetaMask, etc.
This tweet’s claim was immediately refuted by Vitalik who said Most D-apps have lots of room to gas-optimize, and even if one app doesn’t, the other D-app’s running raises gas fees and pressures others to apps to gas-optimize.
On being questioned about Ethereum being at Capacity Vitalik answered saying that All blockchains that are sufficiently mature will be at capacity.
While these conversations were on, Justin took an opportunity to take a dig at Ethereum and Vitalik by asking D-apps to come to Tron network immediately as it was 100x faster and completely compatible to Ethereum providing a 100% guarantee better user experience.
Vitalik vs. Justin- The battle is not new as it marks a heavyweight knockdown competition
Justin Sun, Tron’s Founder and Vitalik Buterin, Co-founder of Ethereum have been in a sought of the fight against each other and both have been seen hurling verbal punches on each other every time they have an opportunity. A couple of weeks back
Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin clarified his comments to Bloomberg that have been misconstrued by the media as well as the crypto community. His original comments had stated that blockchain had reached a ceiling and that there was no more room for the 1,000-times growth we had seen last year. Vitalik clarified his comments by stating the following
“What I *actually* said is that, because large portions of the population have already heard of crypto”
This is where he had blamed Justin Sun by stating that if the media continues to spin the words of those in the blockchain space, then they would have no choice but to adhere to their way of doing things in a manner similar to how Justin has been handling the media.
To this Justin Sun responded stating that he believes the crypto space will hit the $10 Trillion market cap before Apple and Amazon do so in the traditional stock markets. His tweet can be seen below:
It all begin on the April Fool’s day when Buterin mocked the Tron Foundation with his tweet, reminding them of the plagiarism blames that the team when through in January.
Vitalik’s tweet didn’t go well Justin as he retaliated with a tweet a week later comparing how Tron was better than Ether.
It was the reason for this fight is what made Justin name its MainNet shift as an “Independence Day” from Ethereum.
As the numbers of Tron are growing and problems for Ethereum scalability rising. Tron seems to be on track to take on Ethereum head on. How sooner or later this will be possible is something one needs to see. For Ethereum, it will have to soon find a solution to its problems if it has to continue its dominance in Dapp’s industry.
Who will be the ultimate winner of this fight: will it be the patient but deadly Justin Sun or will it be the beyond aggressive Vitalik Buterin? Do let us know your views on the same.
