Tron’s (TRX) Justin Sun sends another jab towards Ethereum (ETH)

Justin Sun appears to have some kind of Ethereum fetish as he keeps comparing his project to the brainchild of Vitalik Buterin. In spite of notorious Ethereum problems with transaction speed and scalability issues, it still dominates the dApp market. At least the legit part of the market. Eos and Tron do seem to have a lot of going on on their blockchains but most of the projects launched are either outright scams or pretty shady gambling games.

That objective state of facts doesn’t hamper Sun’s inclinations to include Ethereum in his tweets. This time he basically openly declared war to Ethereum by inviting projects that run their blockchain to migrate to Tron.

Despite his efforts, there has been no recorded case of dApp steering away from Ethereum in favor of Tron. There were couple of migrations to VeChain and Stellar, but no departure of Ethereum for Tron.

It is also questionable if his statement is true, since there are known issues EOS, also a dPos system like Tron, had with hidden costs for developers in form of having to buy RAM and CPU to run the dApp. This issue was pointed out by one Tron holder:

“What about dev fees? Compare it to EOS for me… on EOS ram restrictions make it very difficult for me to justify a dapp being worth creating, if tron uses a similar DPOW network why doesn’t it have the same restrictions? Is it truly that cheap for me to have a sustainable dapp on tronix? I might have to get to work….”

Edit: DPOS not DPOW

To which he received a reply from another user:

“I think what we really need are some case study dapps where you can see how the same dapp would perform on tron, eth, eos and you can see how much each would cost to run and deploy. If someone from tron is listening I’m pretty sure this would be the easiest way for people to compare dollars to donuts. That or figure out a way for someone who has an eth dapp to estimate the costs of said dapp on tron. Might be as simple as a dapp calculator that checks the bytecode and determines the approximate tron fees, though that sounds way too simple so it’s almost certainly not that easy.”

Justin Sun seemed to be a marketing wizzard back in the bull days of crypto. Now he just looks like a broken record with only one track that he keeps spinning, without considering what his community or other crypto fans tell him.

He should file a patent for his signature move: “announcing the announcement”. In former, dizzying bull days it was a trump card which propelled Tronix, at the time, an empty project with nothing but whitepaper to show for, to the top 15 ranking on coinmarketcap.

As time passes by and bear’s firm grip of crypto markets squeezed the drunken optimism out of the investors, pulling the same trick out of your sleeve doesn’t cut it anymore.
