Justin Sun, the CEO of Tron, is among those who are saddened by the current predicament of a former BitTorrent torrent employee Tong Zhou who turned out to be one of 115,000 clients of Quadriga CX. Now, Zhou once again gets the opportunity to join the BitTorrent team.
Tong Zhou was an ex-@BitTorrent employee and I am saddened by the news of the loss of his life savings in Quadriga CX's digital EX. I sympathize with his predicament and would like to hereby extend an offer to him to once again return to #BitTorrent. #TRON https://t.co/TFh41DWD77— Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) February 11, 2019
A $422,000 predicament
As Bloomberg reported on Dec. 11, Zhou, a software engineer who recently moved to Vancouver, deposited all his life savings ($422,000) to Quadriga CX to transfer them to a Canadian bank. However, since the death of the exchange’s CEO Gerald Cotten, nobody is able to access the funds. The exchange owes its customer more than 190 mln with Zhou among one of the largest affected clients.
Justin Sun comes to the rescue
Sun claims that he’s saddened by the news, and he is willing to give a helping hand Zhou by offering him a job at BitTorrent. That move resonated with multiple Twitter users who are praising Sun.

However, there is one man who’s definitely not going back to BitTorrent. As U.Today reported earlier, ex-BitTorrent exec Simon Morris lashed out criticism at Tron and Justin Sun who, according to Morris, doesn’t have a technical bone.
