Tron [TRX], the ninth largest cryptocurrency in the market, has been the highlight of the cryptocurrency market because of all the announcements pertaining to its development and projects. The coin took the center stage earlier this week when Binance announced that they would be launching BitTorrent token [BTT] crowdsale on their new platform, Binance Launchpad.
FBitTorrent still stands as one of the biggest acquisitions in the cryptocurrency space, as the benefits of the platform are noted by well-known influencers of the space including Charles Hoskinson, the CEO of IOHK and Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of Bitcoin.
Soon after the acquisition, the Founder announced that BitTorrent is going to be a part of Project Atlas, an integration of Tron and BitTorrent. The project aims to improve the network’s protocol, increase its speed and lengthen the lifespan of the swarms. Sun stated that more information regarding the project and the airdrop is going to be announced in the upcoming summit, niTron 2019.
Additionally, cryptocurrency exchanges have already started to come forth and announced their support to the Tron BitTorrent [BTT] airdrop. Earlier today, Koinex, India’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, announced that they would be supporting the upcoming airdrop, on their official Twitter handle.
Sir Bitlord, a Twitterati said:“Today I moved a bigger amount of
$TRX in escrow. This is for my son. The TRX will be released to him in 13 years I believe this way he will basically be economically independent when he starts his adult life Really, everybody should be securing their children’s future this way.”
To this, Justin Sun said:“Your son will not only receive #TRX but also #BTT with numerous amazing projects happened in 13 years. #TRON $TRX”
Yesterday, OKEx, one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, announced the launch of Tron margin trading for the coin. The coin has been paired with Tether [USDT] and Bitcoin [BTC], and users can avail leverage of up to 2x of their available balance or the maximum limit, whichever is lesser. Along with this, WazirX, another cryptocurrency exchange, also announced that they would be supporting the BitTorrent airdrop.
Is Justin Sun Buying His Twitter Followers?
Justin Sun is the popular CEO of the decentralised project, TRON and according to a recent analysis of Suns new 50,000 Twitter followers, it seems that 20,000 of them are zero-day accounts created this month with next to no followers of tweets.
A researcher focusing on Twitter bot manipulation, Geoff Goldberg says that many of these 20,000 Twitter account all have something in common such as the barely any followers, tweets nor profile pictures.
Furthermore, they all also have eight numbers after their ‘name’ which is an indication that they are mass created by some kind of software.
In mapping these accounts by the date they were created shows that, for the most part, they are made very recently and they are most likely fake.
The research shows us that in this year alone, tens of thousands of accounts were created and that they all happen to follow Justin Sun who recently just bragged about passing one million followers which is more than the co-founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin.
One particularly revealing fact is that around 60 percent aren’t following a lot of people. This is based on a sample of 2,000 out of a million so some errors are to be expected. Trustnodes wanted to do a comparison, so they did it on their own Twitter account, on a sum of around 4,000 followers.
Trustnodes found that “followers use spam keywords on their profile, whatever that means. An incredible 99% have a language different from Trustnodes, which is obviously incorrect. Most of them do use English, although of course cryptos are global so there are followers from across the world.” They continue saying that:
“Other factors that probably can be discounted includes location issues, that is people saying they live on Mars with Elon Musk. URL issues obviously doesn’t say much. Times Listed… who even uses lists? And probably number of followers doesn’t say much depending on at just what level they deem them suspicious.”
The date when the accounts were created is a dead giveaway. With Trustnodes, around 1 percent of them are new but Suns are more near the 50 percent mark.
So does Justin Sun buy his followers? The TRON founder has made responses to the claims that he does, but surely it is better for him to make some kind of response sooner rather later?
