Inwards the Spektakelstuk Around the Recently Flourishing Tron (TRX)
Talking about the hot-then-cold Tron (TRX) is one way to draw a strong reaction te the cryptoverse thesis days. Some people love the project, some people hate it. Some consider it an open scam, others think it has revolutionary potential.
Then there are those people te the space who are more or less ecuánime, who simply think Tron teug up the top 100 cryptocurrencies by market capitalization way too swift.
The same dynamic can be said about Tron’s founder, Justin Zon. Regarded spil a wunderkind visionary on the one arm and spil a fraudster on the other, Zon and his branchild project are touchy subjects to say the least right now.
Now, while speculation and prematurity abound, it’s hard to say with certainty that this or that has happened. What wij can do is point out the “smoke” that’s bot generated ter the community spil of late.
Then, it’ll be up to you to do your own research and see if there’s any “fire” to the stuk.
No product yet
This is a more universal concern, and it could be alleged for now – fairly or unfairly – against other sobresaliente projects like Cardano (ADA).
But it’s a reasonable and fundamental concern that’s espoused by veteran cryptocurrency traders every time a fledgling product with no ondergrens viable project (MVP) shoots up te the markets.
Essentially, then, the concern is that investors are investing into a promise, for all intents and purposes. And while promises can work out well if they go through, wij all know that promises are sometimes just that: promises, nothing else.
If Tron produces on its milestones ter the coming weeks, this concern will diegene down.
Justin Zon selling TRX?
One of the latest furious debates te the Tron community is whether or not founder Justin Zon has bot cashing out billions of TRX tokens. The implication here being that Zon is tip-toeing his way out the back wegens, spil it were, for an uitgang scam.
Spil the situation stands now, it is unlikely to determine ter a journalistic sense whether Zon is cashing out big time right now, epistel of standing overheen his shoulder and watching him make withdrawals.
What wij do know thanks to the pseudo-anonymous nature of cryptocurrencies, tho’, is that there is a Tron wallet that has sent billions of TRX to exchanges. Make of that what you will.
Zon has maintained his innocence:

Accusations of plagiarism
Charges of plagiarism are a bit nosey ter a permissionless strijdperk like the cryptoverse, but even still, some “offenses” are worse than others, and people are weeping foul against Justin Zon for apparent instances of flagrant copying.
Very very first came the allegations that the TRX whitepaper wasgoed intensely copied te parts from other crypto projects’ whitepapers:
Wow! Bespottelijk! TRON’s ",paper", is mostly copied from other projects, or is super basic p2p passed off spil flamante. Zero references.
Still, others have disagreed:
Tron’s White Paper is not plagiarism.

For his part, Zon chalked up the whitepaper issues to translation errors te translating the flamante Chinese into Spanish and English.
But whitepaper plagiarism wasn’t the last of Tron’s problems, spil fresh accusations have risen suggesting the project forked lines of code from Ethereumj without attribution.
If true, copying other whitepapers flagrantly is more on the “scammy” end of the spectrum. Forking code from Ethereumj without permission is arguably fair spel ter a permissionless space. Distasteful, perhaps, but slightly less damning than whitepaper plagiarism.
1/Two My confidence ter #TRON $TRX spil a project is plummeting. Plagiarism is rife te China and the TRON team isn’t doing much to help this perception.
