Tron (TRX) is Better than Ethereum (ETH), and BitTorrent Will Make It Even Better; Justin Sun Says

Justin Sun

Justin Sun, founder of TRON (TRX) published a tweet in which he mentioned that his creation was much better than Ethereum (ETH), the second most important blockchain in the global market cap.

Tron is a blockchain that seeks to decentralize web content. Since its inception until some months ago when the mainnet was announced, the tokens known as Tronix were ERC20 smart contracts running on the Ethereum network.

In the tweet, Mr. Sun says that Tron (TRX) is “80 times faster than Ethereum” (ETH); a decisive advantage, especially in terms of scalability in the medium and long-term. The transaction speed is a factor that is now widely taken into consideration to evaluate the convenience or potential of mass adoption of a given blockchain.

As the tweet shows, the recent acquisition of BitTorrent is a matter of strategic importance to Justin Sun. The well-known businessman believes that the combination of BitTorrent’s infrastructure with Tron’s blockchain could help create the most advanced p2p network in the world.

This would not be the first time that Justin Sun has promoted his blockchain by explicitly saying it is better than Ethereum. A few weeks ago, he also tweeted an image in which he comments on 7 reasons why Tron outperforms Ethereum

Within this graph, it is important to note that although the TPS shown are much higher than the current figures, speed has always been one of Tron’s strengths when it comes to justifying its value over Ethereum.

TRON TRX BitTorrent Justin SunTron currently lost its place in the Top 10 of cryptos with the largest market cap. By the time this article was written, TRX had ranked 11th, with a global market cap of around $212.75 million.

On the other hand, Ethereum occupies the second place within the market cap, with an overall figure of 5.2 BUSD. Coinmarketcap is the most credible website for consulting data about the different cryptocurrencies.

So far Vitalik Buterin has not made any comments. The well-known developer is famous in social networks for expressing his opinion without holding anything back at all

After the first ‘TRX vs ETH’ tweet, Vitalik strongly criticised the credibility of the project, especially highlighting the accusations of plagiarism, but overall, Mr. Sun’s behavior has been evaluated as positive, generating a bullish response within the community.

Justin Sun Officially Adds 100 Million BitTorrent Users To Tron (TRX) Ecosystem

No doubt, Tron (TRX) is one big coin that cannot be rubbished in the cryptocurrency space. After Justin Sun announced that Tron would be moved out of Ethereum Network, the cryptocurrency war lord, declared on the go that there is going to be a huge competition between the two altcoins, like that which existed between Moses and Pharaoh.

Today, in a letter sent to the community, it was officially announced that the Tron has acquired BitTorrent in a bid to make its ecosystem stand out.

Justin Sun said BitTorrent and BitTorrent products are solely Tron’s property, creating euphoria in the community.

“From this day on, BitTorrent, whose software has been installed on billions of user devices, will become part of the TRON ecosystem, making TRON the largest decentralized Internet ecosystem in the world,” he said.

He declared that every BitTorrent user and supporter are now part of the TRON family, and so, 100 Million BitTorrent Users are now added to Tron (TRX) Ecosystem.

He maintained that anybody who have used the BitTorrent protocol, built their business on the protocol, or otherwise benefited from the protocol are now part of the TRON family.

BitTorrenct protocol, a file sharing communications protocol based on a p2p network was founded in 2001.

Before blockchain technology became prominent, BitTorrent has been regarded as the first decentralized Internet protocol with large-scale global application.

Talking about the decentralized personality of BitTorrent, Justin Sun said:

“Even today, the BitTorrent protocol retains its status as the world’s largest decentralized protocol, once transmitting 40% of daily Internet traffic. BitTorrent created and shaped the protocol, with 70% of BitTorrent users using the product. The company aims to decentralize the Web by promoting and further developing the BitTorrent protocol.”

The letter reads that BitTorrent gave birth to the decentralization movement, saying “Developers, entrepreneurs, and the decentralized Web community regard BitTorrent as the original pioneers of decentralization technology. It is the foundation of an open, transparent, shared Internet protocol.”

The latest acquisition signals that TRON’s “All-In Decentralization” agenda is heading towards fruition since the two platform which has now become one share the same vision for a decentralized Web.

Sun said he understands that BitTorrent will become more decentralized and gain a new life after integrating into the TRON ecosystem.
