On his Twitter account, the founder of Tron, Justin Sun, is encouraging devs to stop developing dApps on the Ethereum network and move to Tron.

This tweet came out after Afri Schoedon tweeted that Ethereum is running at its full capacity and where he urged not to occupy Ethereum, switching to other dApps instead, like Ethereum Classic


Apparently, the Ethereum network was running at its maximum at the time when the tweet was posted, also there were almost 59,000 transactions hanging in the air, pending.

Vitalik disagrees

Vitalik Buterin responded to this ‘panic’ disapprovingly, saying that a few dApps can optimize their use of gas. Besides, he said that while one dApp takes up too much gas, other dApps will have to spend it in a more efficient way.

Market Manipulation Remains a Massive Red Flag For Cryptocurrency Adoption and Regulation

Justin Sun’s arguments

Tron Foundation says that the Tron Virtual Machine is fully compatible with the Virtual Machine of Ethereum. Besides, he adds developer teams can switch to Tron almost for no charge. When Tron’s Virtual Machine was launched, the community took it as a move towards enlarging the Tron network. Currently, it consists of three parts: Engine tools, tools for developers and tools for third parties.

According to Tron’s CTO, Tron’s Virtual Machine developer tools include tools similar to those of Ethereum.

Tron’s team promises developers a better user experience. On the other hand, some members of the crypto community have posted their skeptical and even negative reactions, saying that “Tron was dead before it started” and “for Christ’s sake, it is named after a movie.”
