Justin Sun, who heads up BitTorrent as well as crypto endeavor Tron, has doubled down on previous calls for Consensys (and other developers) to join the 'Tron family.' Sun might be getting a little bit cocky, but not without reason, as Tron has scored a number of impressive milestones recently.
About a week ago, with rumors of Consensys' insolvency floating around, Sun joked that Consensys developers should give him resumes in consideration of their next employment. A few days ago, in response to news that Consensys was involving Ethereum dev's in the project.
Perhaps Sun was a little scorned that Consensys didn't take seriously his request to contact him, but its also possible that he's feeling invincible, hot off the heels of recent good news for Tron. Tron last week gained one million individual user addresses, which is certainly an impressive milestone. Also apparently Tron's platform is gaining Dapps at a rabid clip, with Sun tweeting a prediction that Tron will surpass EOS 'at the end of January'
#TRON grows rapidly and has 83 Dapps in @dapp_review now! Mission accomplished! We will surpass EOS on the number of Dapps (now 259) at the end of January, 2019! #TRX $TRX https://t.co/ybPZdldmEI pic.twitter.com/HlbkUgi9Po— Justin Sun (@justinsuntron) December 30, 2018
Braggadocio is par for the course for tech developers, especially in crypto. Is Justin Sun all bluster or is Tron entering 2019 as a real contender?
