The fracas that erupted a few days ago between DigiByte CEO, Jared Tate and Tron (TRX) CEO, Justin Sun, allegedly prompted the latter to mastermind the delisting of DGB from Poloniex exchange.
The faceoff seemed to have died down but looks like this assumption is far from the truth as the creator of DigiByte Jared Tate recently taunted Justin Sun after responding to the tweet of a Digibyte maximalist, who stressed on the impressive number of active connections on DigiByte network, compared to Bitcoin (BTC).
The CEO Jared Tate responded to coolshoeshine after he made a positive remark about the performance of DigiByte (DGB). In the tweet, he said he conducted a close examination for months on the active connections on DigiByte (DGB) and Bitcoin (BTC) network.
He then shared the outcome of his research, saying DigiByte has more active connections than Bitcoin. “After months of running both a digibyte and a bitcoin full node, you know what I’ve seen? Digibyte always has more active connections than Bitcoin,” he shared.
In response to the accolade bestowed on DigiByte by coolshoeshine, Jared Tate said that anybody can use the network, regardless of the level of understanding of the person, denoting how simple the node is fashioned.
He continued by sharing that Digibyte is absolutely decentralized, with no infiltration from a bunch of Chinese tycoons. He was supposedly referring to Tron’s Justin Sun and Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao.
He later concluded by pointing out that DigiByte participants are spread across 113 countries.
He said, “Your average person can still run a full DigiByte node. Decentralization is everything. DGB isn’t run by a bunch of Chinese tycoons. It has participants from over 113 countries.”

How the Fracas Came About
A few weeks ago, Poloniex exchange announced its move to delist the digital token DigiByte (DGB) from its list of options. After a supposed close review of the digital currency conducted by Poloniex, it then concluded that DGB does meet its discrete standard, hence the delisting.
After the announcement was made, the majority of the crypto community members flared with condemnation of the seemingly biased action.
Many then attributed the action to the statement made by DigiByte CEO against Justin Sun and CZ Binance about 24 hours to the time of the incident, tagging the action as an instant strike back by Justin Sun, who has a large quota in the cryptocurrency exchange in question.
DigiByte (DGB) Market Situation
The general lackluster performance of digital currencies in the market makes it looks like there is a doom targeting all. For a couple of days until now, the price of virtually all cryptocurrencies led by Bitcoin has been falling.
This likely affected the price trend of DigiByte (DGB) as it’s also replicating the negative trends of a larger digital token market. At the time of writing, DGB is trading at $0.006056, with about 2% price downtrend in the last 24 hours.
