Justin Sun, the founder and CEO of Tron has announced to create a fund to “rescue” dApp developers working on both platforms on the condition that they move their dApps to the Tron Network through his twitter account.
After this tweet, there was a stir of comments from both the sides of the competing communities. While some praised Sun for his genius strategy, other simply mocked Sun and the Tron Project through different retweets and comments. Some people even went too far to create a mocking video portraying Tron’s failure.
BitTorrent experienced a complete turn over in July which was driven by the self-promotion of Sun as well as successful acquisition companies. Tron also claimed to have made a significant progress towards building out the infrastructure for a thoroughly decentralized internet.
Tron has been creating a lot of buzz in the media and gaining attention. However, Sun has been dragged into a lot of controversies due to his self-promotion strategy initially with a Chinese internet giant Baidu, then with the announcement of NBA legend Kobe Bryant as a speaker at Tron’s upcoming 2019 crypto conference.
The Sun’s strategy might be relatively favorable to the Tron network as Ethereum and EOS comparatively are suffering from significant loss as they are performing poorly because of the investor concerns over the longevity of the networks. Also, the report by CCN suggests that blockchain research and testing organization Whiteblock expressed that EOS isn't generally a blockchain network, however, truth be told, a "disseminated homogeneous database" experiencing critical security failings and lower-than-publicized system execution. Meanwhile, Ethereum is suffering from effects of the bear cryptomarket.
Tron network, on the other hand, has been experiencing an exponential growth and with this, the number of developers and development of dApps has also skyrocketed, surpassing the EOS and Ethereum Network.
While there are controversies and arguments on both sides, it stays vague which smart contract and dApp advancement stage is superior to the next. It is still too soon to tell which will be the top platform.
