Vitalik Buterin trolls Tron coin shills

Vitalik Buterin recently took a break from developing Ethereum to try his hand at satire, in an apparent attempt to fire back at ridicule from Tron CEO, Justin Sun.

A couple of days ago (and presumably after weeks of tireless investigation) it was unearthed that Buterin had once uttered the word “BitTorrent,” even praising it back in 2017 as a long-lasting use case for decentralized apps.

So much for loyalty, Buterin...  

(Well that’s settled. He may as well hand over his Ether private keys to the Tron foundation now)

Justin Sun caught wind of this notable seal of approval, formulating a quick jibe, alongside (you guessed it) some Tron promotion:

And with that enough was enough, Buterin decided he wasn’t going to take it anymore, and rolled out his unique sense of humour in a not-so-vailed ribbing of Tron “coin shills”:

Replying to Elon Musk’s recent Tweet on Entropy, Buterin decided to shill an ICO for his new Entropy (ETT) token using Musk’s tweet as a sign of endorsement.

Buterin decided to explicitly inform his followers of the joke... just in case. 

There’s certainly no love lost between Sun and Buterin, and with a long with a history of underhanded comments and retorts between the two competitors, it doesn’t look like this will end any time soon …
