Tron (TRX) founder Justin Sun has fired more shots at Ethereum (ETH) and its related projects. On his Twitter, he posted an open invitation for anyone working at Ethereum and ConsenSys to "join our fast-growing and well-funded #TRON family".
Everyone in @ConsenSys and @ethereum please send your resume to email@example.com and embrace your new opportunity! You are mostly welcome to join our fast-growing and well-funded #TRON family. #TRX $TRX #ETH https://t.co/kzwFpyO31w— Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) December 22, 2018
This post could be a response to the recent news about lay-offs at ConsenSys, the Ethereum production studio led by co-founder Joe Lubin. The project abruptly made around 13 percent of its staff redundant, and it now appears that this could extend to as much as 60 percent of its employees. Another Ethereum-based project, Status.IM, also recently got rid of a quarter of its staff due to a "restructuring of priorities".
Sun has positioned Tron as a direct rival to Ethereum, as well as the EOS network. He frequently points out how much better-performing Tron dApps are than their equivalents on EOS and Ethereum blockchains, and makes an effort to build a reputation for Tron as one of the strongest and most-welcoming developer communities in crypto.
This isn't the first time that Sun has urged developers from other projects to make the switch to the Tron network, and he has even suggested the creation of a fund to support those affected by the collapse of ETH and EOS that he predicts.
Many observers on Twitter agreed that Tron was the superior platform, and admired Sun's confidence as well as generosity in extending this invitation. Others were more critical of Tron, and suggested that this was more of a publicity stunt than a genuine offer.

BRB, sending in a plagiarized resume because it’s Tron after all?— Crypto Bobby (@crypto_bobby) December 22, 2018
Justin Sun doesn’t read facts or create revolutionary ideas, he just tries to steal them. Read Lubin’s tweet!— Ethereum Jesus ⟠ (@EthereumJesus) December 22, 2018
