One of the giveaway and bounty programs organized by the Tron foundation seems to be placing the CEO of Tron, Justin Sun, under fire as the cryptosphere cries out foul and inconsistencies in the process of choosing the winner.
Sun’s lucidity had been formerly challenged online when users observed that he went through more than 80 drawings before concluding on the final prizewinner.
However, while the crypto community continues to jab the CEO, the lead maintainer of Monero blockchain technology, Riccardo Spagni, has added salt to the injury by mocking the millennial CEO in a twitter statement.
Justin Sun offered the supposed winner, Puebla popularly known as XRP UzGar, a ticket to the next #niTROn summit in 2020 and a fully paid round-trip ticket to the event location, but Spagni responded with a satire asking if both prices were the same.
“Sorry I didn’t give you a Tesla, but instead we’ll give you two economy class tickets to attend our conference. That’s basically the same thing, right?,” Spagni said.
Previously, Justin sun contacted the lucky winner, a Mexico-based Uziel Garcia, to send him details of his contact in a direct message so that the giveaway can be disbursed to him.
Sun later annulled the decision that XRP UzGar is the winner of the competition.
“We shared a video of the selection process for transparency. Due to the large size of the video, Twitter wasn’t able to compress it properly resulting in a glitch. We will contact Twitter to make sure this doesn’t happen again. We apologize to the community for the mishap.”
Sun continued: “For full community transparency, we decided to cancel the previous result and so a live stream draw instead.”
XRP UzGar flagged the assertion as a renege and failed to agree with Justin Sun. He further called unto the crypto community to decide if the CEO and its foundation scammed him or not.
Even though the CEO believes his newest decision was made to uphold optimum transparency, Justin Sun apologized.
“However, I do recognize that this is an unfortunate situation, and would like to extend my warmest welcome to the next #niTROn summit in 2020, including a fully paid round-trip ticket to the event location. We are very grateful for your continued support”, Sun stated.
However, XRPUzGar disclosed that he had already dedicated the Tesla car to his 6-year-old son as his anniversary gift on 25th of May.
Justin Sun Receives Threat From Another Crypto Enthusiast
As the series of word exchange between Justin Sun and XRPUzGar continues, twitteratis in the crypto community have also shown their own side of the story.
A twitterati known as Cryptofiend took side of XRPUzGar with a warning to Justin Sun.
“Either give him the Tesla which you should have given him or expect this to keep being called a fake competition. I doubt he wants to go to your shitty conference and even if he did it is not the same value as a Tesla”, cryptofiend stated.
“Lol you could have your dream car or you can go to a conference for Tron – I’m wondering what kind of mental deficiency would be required to choose the latter”, cryptofiend added.
