Justin Sun advocates cooperation between crypto platforms

Sun did not mention any details regarding the cooperation with Ethereum or even if Vitalik Buterin will be involved. Still, Tron plans to team up with some of the ETH development teams.

He admitted that the two platforms have been competing, but this competition is ultimately beneficial for the global crypto industry.

Tron recently has been taking the lead from Ethereum regarding dApps. In a recent tweet, Sun wrote that the amount of dApps running on Tron now exceeds 246.

As of last autumn, Tron has been luring dApp devs from Ethereum and EOS. Specially for new platform members, the Tron Foundation set up a special fund, so they can work without worrying about finances.
