In the middle of a Twitter discussion, the Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin, known to accuse the initial Tron whitepaper of plagiarism, has given it an indirect compliment.
BitTorrent gets praised by a crypto mover and shaker
In response to a question, what he would call a ‘metagame success’ and a long lasting case for decentralized apps, Vitalik gave a laconic answer “BitTorrent”. This is indirectly gives a bonus to Tron’s reputation, for which Justin Sun publicly thanks Vitalik. Even though the discussion took place in 2017, Justin Sun has taken this as a compliment.
Are Vitalik and Justin getting friendly to each other?
As a reminder, in spring 2018, Vitalik publicly accused Tron of plagiarizing some aspects of Ethereum’s whitepaper for Tron’s. In the course of 2018, Justin Sun and Vitalik had several public disputes on Twitter.
However, at the end of 2018, Justin Sun asked Vitalik to check the new whitepaper by tagging him in his Twitter post. After that, Vitalik seems to have adopted a more positive attitude towards Tron, BitTorrent and Justin Sun.
