As cryptocurrency enthusiasts are well-aware, the SEO of Tron, Justin Sun and the Founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin have been throwing rather arguing comments on each other. Mostly hence it had happened when it came to comparing both of their projects. There has been an interesting comment made by Sun which was followed by a recent announcement of Ether on their new hard fork.
The Ethereum hard fork named Constantinople is reportedly scheduled to occur on block #7080000. After the announcement by one of the core developers of Ethereum, Peter Szilagyi that Constantinople hard fork was successful on Rinkeby Testnet, Sun took Twitter make the interesting comment.
Peter Szilagyi’s official announcement stated: “Rinkeby Ethereum testnet successfully forked over to Constantinople! All signers, bootnodes, faucet online and working well. Clean split between new and non-upgraded nodes (please update!)”.
As a response to the recent announcement Justin Sun Tweeted: “congrats to Vitalik Buterin and one step further to join POS family!”
Meanwhile Sun’s such comment regarding the topic of Proof-of-Stake (PoS) had similar prior cases as well. Additionally, some sources also suggest that Sun’s recent comment was hence sort of an answer to Buterin’s earlier comment to the founder of Litecoin (LTC), Charlie Lee; and earlier Buterin had asked Lee whether he wanted to move Litecoin to PoS algorithm.
And, even earlier Buterin had claimed that “Ethereum’s Proof-of-Stake protocol is much more powerful in comparison to other projects already using the PoS algorithm”.
