Justin Sun, CEO and Founder of Tron Foundation, was the subject of discussion on the latest episode of Magical Crypto Friends. Riccardo Spagni, the lead maintainer of Monero, Charlie Lee, the creator of Litecoin, WhalePanda, a Bitcoin influencer, and Samson Mow, the CSO of Blockstream, discussed the failed Tesla giveaway and Justin Sun’s keynote at Consensus.
The “Tesla giveaway” seemed to be trolling Justin Sun’s faux pas involving Tron’s Tesla giveaway. The giveaway in question was related to the collaboration of Tron and Tether, where the Foundation promised a Tesla to a “lucky Twitter follower,” in order to kick start the USDT giveaway.
Justin Sun picked a winner, following which, he cancelled the draw on the grounds of transparency, leaving the chosen Twitter user disappointed. The user responded,“Do you think @justinsuntron and @TronFoundation scam me? I was officially the winner since he had mentioned that there was no problem with the video and then they just made another draw and they forgot me. Thank you”
After a lot of outrage and an apology, Sun finally announced giving away a Tesla to the winner of both the initial and subsequent draw.
On the episode of Magical Crypto Friends, they also discussed Justin Sun’s keynote at Consensus 2019. About this, Spagni stated that he considered this news to be an April Fools’ Day joke, adding that this was “really sad.” This was followed by Mow adding that Sun was a fine example of ‘Fake it till you make it,’ stating that “he [Sun] made it.”
Spagni further added,
Meanwhile, Mow stated that Sun should probably “apologize” for plagiarizing his content at the conference.
Further, Charlie Lee spoke about an incident pertaining to Tron, that occurred while he was at the Token 2049 conference.“[… I approached the booth [Tron] and I asked her […] tell me more about [Tron]. And then she was like, ‘you’ve never heard of Tron it’s a number-10 cryptocurrency on quite market cap. I’m like no I’ve only heard of the top five and asked if she knew what the what the number 4 coin was and she’s like, ‘I don’t know what the number 4 coin is but Tron is number 10’.”

*Price at the time of writing
Tron Long Term Price Prediction: Bearish
As highlighted in our weekly coins to watch article, the TRON-based Tether USDT, -0.02% giveaway is still rolling out to holders as per the incentive plan launched together with Raybo Technology, a China-based technology company. Daily airdrops are distributed on supported exchanges. Meanwhile, terms and conditions are apply for eligibility in the $30 million reward payout.
Now, let’s see how the TRX/USD market has been performing in the short, mid and long-term time frames.
TRON TRX, 13.46%, however, has seen a little recovery over the past few hours after meeting important support at the $0.02 price level. Today, the market is climbing back with price growth of 9.50%. The bulls are stepping back into the market on a short-term basis.
With this action, TRX may continue to rise to immediate resistance at $0.025 and $0.027. A further drive could bring us back to the $0.03, $0.033 and $0.035 levels. However, the market appears bearish from a long-term perspective.
At $0.027, a possible price rejection can fall the market back to $0.02, $0.018 and $0.017, as illustrated on the daily chart. A significant break could drive the price to $0.015 and $0.0127, near the 2018 low. Then, the RSI might dip to the oversold area but it is now supported on the 30 level.
The MACD is currently negative after oscillating at the positive zone since pre-December, indicating a bear market.
Tron Medium Term Price Prediction: Bearish
Significantly, the TRX/USD pair has made a medium-term bearish reversal after hitting $0.04 in late June. Now, the price action is forming a falling wedge pattern, which confirms a downtrend for the Tron market.
During this session, we can see how TRX slightly bounced after falling to $0.02 at the lower wedge boundary. The buyers have shown a reaction, and if they can continue to gain momentum for the rest of this session, the price may close at $0.029 after surpassing the $0.0255 and $0.027 resistances.
However, the market may still fall back to key support at $0.02. Breaching this support could drop the price to the $0.017 and $0.015 support levels. The RSI is now rising after a positive cross. We may see a short-term bullish move if it climbs further. On the MACD, Tron is at the extremely negative zone, reflecting a dominant bear bias in the market.
Tron Short Term Price Prediction: Bearish
On the short-term, Tron is on the downside and has been constructing a falling channel pattern over the past 11 days of trading. The TRX/USD pair has reached the $0.024 level at the top of the channel boundary, where trading is likely to bounce back to $0.022 and $0.02 before we see a possible break down.
If the bulls can manage to sustain the price above the channel, the $0.027 and $0.0295 resistances will play out after breaching a minor resistance at $0.025, as labeled on the chart. Meanwhile, the hourly RSI is rising and it’s likely to meet a short-term resistance at the 70 level. A break upwards could launch a bull-run in the market.
Following the long bearish scenario, the hourly MACD has just seen a positive crossover.

Poloniex, BigOne, and KuCoin roll additional support to USDT-TRON airdrop
A couple of top crypto exchanges recently announced that they are extending support to the USDT-TRON airdrop which has already begun from July 15, 2019.
According to the latest blog post by Ploniex published on July 12, the exchange offers flexibility by supporting all three networks for Tether (Omni, Eth, and Tron). The exchange claims that this effort is among its best initiatives taken to enhance exchange “as the best possible exchange for crypto traders and enthusiasts.”

As per the earlier announcement, Tron is airdropping approximately 30million worth of USDT-TRON as a daily interest to holders of these tokens. According to the Poloniex Exchange;
The amount of USDT we receive in the airdrop will be based on the amount we convert. Once the airdrop begins, Poloniex customers will be credited based on the amount of Tether they hold on Poloniex.
BigONE And KuCoin Supports USDT-TRON Airdrop
Poloniex is currently supporting deposits as well as withdrawals of USDT on the Tron network and subsequently credit airdrop to eligible holders of USDT.

Tron CEO Justin Sun, Plans To Convince Warren Buffet To Soften His Stance On Digital Assets – He Reveals His Approach
You may recall that Justin Sun has been gathering friends to take to the famous upcoming lunch that he will be having with Warren Buffet.
Sun gained massive media exposure not too long ago after he won an important charity auction.
Not too long ago, Sun won an eBay charity auction to have lunch with renowned investor Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett.
Justin Sun explains his upcoming approach with Warren Buffet
Sun is really hoping that he’d be able to convince Warren Buffet to soften his vision on cryptos and their potential.
During a new interview with Forbes, he talked about his goals for the upcoming meeting mentioned above.
Here’s what Sun had to say:
“I don’t think we can convince him that all crypto and blockchain is good, but I hope he walks away knowing more about the industry and its potential…” Sun began.
He also said, “I’m not sure how much I can persuade him in three hours or less. I will point him to the recent moves by other big companies to embrace crypto. J.P. Morgan, IBM, and now Facebook are all jumping into the market based on its promise of borderless commerce and decentralized finance.”
Justin Sun invites Donald Trump to lunch
Other than this, another move that Sun made and it’s really worth mentioning is that he also invited President Donald Trump to the lunch as a response to his tweets against crypto.
Here’s Sun’s invitation for Trump:
A lot of enthusiasts were rooting for the idea and Sun is not the only one trying to convince Trump to come to the lunch and be open to changing his stance on the digital assets and their future.
Trump did not offer an answer to Sun’s invitation as and far as we know, he might not even know who Justin Sun is.
