Seems TRON now has the hands of prominent Bitcoiners on deck as a patron of the blockchain network. The competitive challenge between Ethereum and TRON has stirred up trolls between supports of the two blockchain projects on Twitter.
Supporters of TRON are issuing out a number of statistics in favor of TRON as against the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap.
The CEO of TRON and BitTorrent project, Justin Sun, has just commented on the statement of a prominent Bitcoiner who talked in support of TRON. Justin Sun, in the Twitter thread, said: “Ethereum is over.”
Branded with pseudo name NVK on Twitter, the prominent Bitcoiner illustrated a photo he took with Justin Sun at a night event which also featured another Bitcoiner.
NVK in the illustration also copied Bitcoin coder Udi Wertheimer who had earlier lashed Ethereum.
NVK in his statement said, “we have plans.” Further speaking, the Bitcoiner said TRON is moving to lightning network on Bitcoin.
“We have a plan. Ethereum is over. Tron moving to liquid network on bitcoin,” NVK said.
In response, SEO Sun retweeted the statement with a similar assertion which sounded like authorization of the statement.

Are Bitcoiners Truly TRON Fans?
The tussle between TRON and Ethereum has extended into the circle of some Bitcoiners as they take the side of the latter.
The head of business and operations at TRON, Roy Liu, also joined the train, saying people would probably now begin to realize the potency of TRON and this is just the beginning.
It's just the beginning. LOL https://t.co/Yg4atgwJSG

Ethereum non-core developer Anthony Sassano also delved into the matter, responding to Bitcoiner NVK.
He said he was flabbergasted by the action of the Bitcoiners taking the side of TRON to delegitimize Ethereum. Sassano said he earlier thought it was a joke, but he has now realized that it has gone past that.
I know this is meant to be a "joke" but I think it has moved passed that at this point.
Prominent Bitcoiners are now actively promoting Tron in order to delegitimize Ethereum and I frankly find it utterly disgusting.
These people should be ashamed of themselves. pic.twitter.com/Iwwf12aZ3M

However, another Bitcoiner known as Grubles on Twitter, tried to clarify the nature of the trend, saying lovers of Bitcoin who are now supporting TRON are only doing so to discredit Ethereum.

Earlier, Justin Sun commented on an acclaimed report from the co-founder of EOS, Brendan Blummer, that Ethereum-based ConsenSys is actually paying Twitter trolls and shills to promote its project and Ethereum.
While addressing the crypto community over the incessant trend, Sun said TRON would never hire crypto community members to attack Ethereum.
@justinsuntron is also getting shit to no end from same said shills and trolls. It’s hilarious because they never even tried Tron or EOS. They just know that they’re somehow morally inferior to Ethereum, because…. honestly no one knows whyhttps://t.co/ox12X4KbfJ
