Tron CEO Justin Sun has taken to Twitter to accuse Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin and ConsenSys of allegedly hiring Twitter trolls to badmouth other crypto projects. 

He joined Brendan Blumer in his criticism, claiming that the Tron Foundation would never do the same.

Tron's "scamminess"

While Ethereum and Tron have been at loggerheads for a long time, Buterin recently reignited the war of words between the two camps. He tweeted that the project's "internal scamminess" prevents it from hiring the best research and development talent. 

Tron is undoubtedly one of the most controversial projects in the crypto space. Apart from botched Tesla giveaways, it is also known for longstanding plagiarism allegations. Buterin himself accused Tron of copying Ethereum's white paper (something that Sun vehemently denies).

After Buterin's tweet, Bitcoiner Udi Wertheimer came to Tron's defense. He wrote that there was nothing "scammy" about the project, describing Sun as an entrepreneur who "keeps making big moves."

Meanwhile, Blockstream CEO Adam Back went as far as suggesting that the Tron Foundation could potentially buy ConsenSys and replace ETH 2.0 with Tron.

Sun's Twitter feed is now swarmed with Bitcoin maximalists.
