Blockstream warms up to Tron 

As reported by U.Today, many prominent Bitcoin (BTC) maximalists recently formed what seems to be a bizarre alliance with none other than Sun. Whether they are simply trolling or genuinely siding with one of the most controversial figures in the crypto space to spite Vitalik Buterin, this king of switcheroo remains the hottest topic on crypto Twitter as of now.  

Blockstream CSO Samson Mow opined that Tron is more decentralized than Ethereum while doing an in-depth comparison of the two rivaling projects. Mow even brought up Sun's recent dinner with Warren Buffett and compared his Twitter follower count to that of Buterin.

Peter McCormack, the founder of the "What Bitcoin Did" podcast, doesn't get tired of calling altcoins "junk" and trashing their bagholders. However, he has apparently changed his tune to Tron (along with his Twitter name). During his interview with Sun, they discussed why TRX could be "an Ethereum killer."

Prominent crypto trader Luke Martin commented that it was "a smart move" on McCormack's side and jokingly suggested that Sun could be the real Satoshi.
