Approximately 50% of respondents to an online poll centered on TRON founder and CEO of BitTorrent, Justin Sun, have said the creator of the decentralized technology is a “genius”.
The poll, which ended on Nov 29, 2019, was conducted by Jacob Canfield, the founder of Signal Profits and an army veteran who spent six years doing counterintelligence and cryptography.
The army veteran asked if Justin Sun is “a genius or really lucky?” alleging that Justin Sun created a cryptocurrency by copying and pasting open source, selling “tokens for millions after announcing announcements”.
He further alleged that Justin Sun bought an actual cash flowing BitTorrent, and got Poloniex from Circle for pennies from the fund he got from TRON sales.
Of the 2411 respondents, 49.4% said Justin was a Genius. The survey is an indication of what respondents felt about Justin, on the creation of TRON and the acquisition of BitTorrent and his investment in Poloniex.
Also, as contained in the final data, 28.9% said he was lucky. As well, 21.7% clicked “result”, however, Canfield did not explain what he meant by Result in the poll.

For further clarification, an avid Tronix community member, Mike McCarthy, inquired if the acquisition announcement will be a buying or selling deal.
While Justin Sun responded that it would be a “buying” deal, McCarthy said the query was prompted by a previous misconception before TRXMarket acquisition was announced.
“Are we buying or selling? We all presumed we were buying last time and we were wrong,” McCarthy said.

Afterwards, McCarthy hailed Justin Sun for his relentless efforts toward promoting Tron and BitTorrent ecosystem.
Earlier on November 29, Justin Sun proclaimed that Tron’s largest decentralized exchange, TRX Market, was acquired by Poloniex. Hence, TRX Market will be operating under Poloniex with the name “Poloni DEX.”
