Vitalik Buterin on ‘Zombie’ BitTorrent under the ‘dictatorship’ of Justin Sun

Ethereum Vitalik Buterin expressed what he understands as an example of the ‘Justin Sun dictatorship,’ as soon as the TRON founder accused of another plagiarism controversy.

A recent re-advertising of the BitTorrent File System (BTFS) was not appropriately handled by Juan Benet, the creator of the Interplanetary File System(IFPS). Bennet pointed out that there were a few similarities between the new BTFS logo and that of IFPS.

The BitTorrent team tweeted that IFPS should be thankful to BitTorrent as they paved the way for the distributed file sharing industry.

Ethereum founder, Vitalik Buterin, further got in the middle of this dispute by mentioning the zombification of BitTorrent under the leadership of Justin Sun.

Justin Sun’s reach further grows:

Justin Sun’s initial dispute between TRON further triggered after sections of the TRON whitepaper were indicated to have lifted wholesale from those of Ethereum and even IPFS’s BitSwap.

Tron recently launched Djed, a DeFi product, which also strongly resembled MakerDAO, a lending platform. This is very intriguing as these problems are recurring continuously.

After acquiring SteemIt, Tron creator has faced many accusations, which include charges of bribery and large scale censorship.

In 2019, Simon Morris, the former executive of BitTorrent, made a colossal exit by accusing Sun and firing parting shots. He even started comparing Sun’s approach to that of Donald trump’s.
