Vitalik Buterin, the creator of Ethereum, the third largest cryptocurrency in the space, has rebutted to the recent statement made by Justin Sun, the CEO and Founder of Tron Foundation.
Last week, Justin Sun had shown his “gratitude” to Vitalik Buterin on Twitter for speaking about the use-case of BitTorrent. Along with this, Sun added that there is a Valentines Day gift waiting for the creator of Ethereum.
Buterin had previously commented that BitTorrent has a real long-lasting use case for decentralized applications, besides Bitcoin. He had also quoted peer-to-peer technology as an example of a metagame success.
Vitalik Buterin soon retaliated to Sun’s statement. He said on Twitter:
“Entropy! Did I hear entropy? Well I happen to be making an ICO coin called Entropy Token, and it looks like $elonmusk supports it! Buy $ETT #ETT 𝄞ETT! Whitepaper soon!”
He further added:
“Note for the uninitiated: yes I am making fun of twitter coin shills who are taking my tweet about VPNs and bittorrent out of context.”
Interestingly, it was soon pointed out that a token named Entropy already exists in the space. Succeeding this, Buterin said, “So turns out “Entropy Token” actually exists….. Cryptocurrency rule #34: if it exists there’s a token of it?”. He further clarified that neither him nor Elon Musk “support” the holding of such coins, adding that “at least if my mental model of @elonmusk is accurate”.

“They should settle it with a game of hungry hungry hippos.”

“I would really like to see fannie may hocolates somehow incorporated into this valentine’s day campaign”
Notably, this is not the first time the two have had a face-off on the social media platform. Prior to this, Sun had spoken about Ethereum’s shift to the Proof-of-Stake algorithm from the Proof-of-Work algorithm. Here, Sun welcomed Buterin to the PoS family and also congratulated him for its advancement.
