Justin Sun, CEO of Tron and a student of Ali Baba’s Jack Ma, has time and time again proven that he is amongst the top cryptocurrency personalities. One such trait to stand out is by making your point across Twitter, and so Justin Sun has worked his way towards belittling the second most popular cryptocurrency Ethereum.
Running at full capacity
Justin Sun replied to a tweet from an Ethereum developer called ‘Afri Schoedon’ who suggested people not use Ethereum’s platform for dApps due to Ethereum running at full capacity.
Yes! Please stop deploying d-apps to Ethereum and migrate to #TRON network immediately! We are 100x faster than #ETH and fully compatible with #ethereum. We 100% guarantee better user experience! #TRX $TRX https://t.co/gRCtOC0rIS

Justin Sun claimed Tron was 100x faster than Ethereum and compatible with Ethereum.
Sun’s Repetitive Punches to Ethereum
It was not the first time Justin Sun slandered Ethereum. Two months ago, on 28 July 2018 Sun tweeted about Tron being 80 times faster and boasted about their latest partnership with BitTorrent.
TRON is 80 times faster than Ethereum. With 14 years of experience, @BitTorrent is providing a world-class service to 100 million users in 138 countries. Add the two together and you get the largest and most advanced peer-to-peer network in the world! #TRONBT $TRX pic.twitter.com/EsQd34Vq4u

Following its mainnet launch, TRON was able to achieve 2000 Transactions Per Second (TPS) against Ethereum’s 25 TPS.
More choices for developers
As for compatibility, dApps on Ethereum need to be coded on Ethereum’s programming language which is Solidity. However, a developer that wants to use Tron’s platform can use a range of popular programming languages to choose from, including Ethereum’s Solidity, thanks to its new Virtual Machine.
About an hour later, Justin Sun retweeted ‘Tron News’ which stated the advantages of Tron.
• 100x faster than #ETH
• great user/developer experience
• free transactions
• @BitTorrent integration
• https://t.co/J7MaeLUtH4 acquisition
• resource efficient (Bandwidth)
• energy-friendly (DPoS) no mining
• Strong community
What else #TRONICS

On top of the list was Tron’s speed being 100x faster than Ethereum. It also included advantages such as Blockchain.org acquisition and strong community.
Tron’s Delegated Proof Of Stake is Centralized or Decentralized?
The tweet faced a backlash of a few likely Ethereum supporters who claimed that 7 of the Super Representatives out of the 27 were led Justin Sun.
Also Tron(TRX): controlled by @justinsuntron and his cohorts!

However, the Super Representatives of Tron are selected by the community which means that it is an active decentralised manner of elections as it is a delegated proof of stake consensus.
Only a month ago, Tron switched from a proof of stake model to a delegated proof of stake. A tweet announced the change with an explanation of the two types of models.

Proof of stake can be explained as the verifications of transactions by miners, based on an algorithm of the number of coins owned by the miner. PoS is directly dependent on a miner being chosen on the amount of digital currency they stake. It is way more efficient than Proof of Work (PoW) as it requires less power consumption and much faster regarding TPS.
Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) on the other hand is a more efficient version of PoS by utilising a reputation system of voting by the members of the community for the Super Representatives.
However many still argue about the fact of Super Representatives being centralised due to the community having chances of being biased.
