Justin Sun (TRON) denounces Vitalik Buterin and supports Ethereum hard forks!

As the Ethereum merger date approaches, conversations around the future of Ethereum are becoming increasingly heated. Justin Sun, the founder of Tron, is becoming one of the most influential figures to publicly support Ethereum hard forks.

Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum, has lashed out at Ethereum hard fork supporters, including Sun. He stated that these supporters are exchange owners looking to make a quick buck.

Justin Sun took to Twitter to dispute Vitalik’s claims. He claims that his exchange, Poloniex, does not take any fees for ETHW or ETHS transactions. He claims that his support is solely for the public good.

The back and forth around the Ethereum merger

The Merge is replacing the miners currently required by the Proof-of-Work with validators. As a result, the next move by the miners involved has become a topic of speculation. Buterin called on PoW supporters and miners to support the Ethereum Classic blockchain.

However, concerns about hard forks in Ethereum after the merger have been a source of worry. Chandler Guoan influential Chinese miner, revealed his intention to fork ETH.

Justin Sun has made the decision to support any potential fork. Poloniex, Sun’s exchange, now lists ETHW and ETHS. The exchange also allows any ETH holder to exchange their tokens for ETHS or ETHW.

Sun says he appreciates the work of the Ethereum Foundation and Vitalik. However, he argues that proof of work should exist as a consensus mechanism even after the merger.
