Crypto war on Twitter due to planned Steem Hardfork: Vitalik Buterin vs. Justin Sun, Hive vs. Steem

Unfortunately, the CEOs of some crypto projects are behaving just as young as the crypto market. The latest case is about the ongoing discussions about Steem and HIVE. There will be: Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin for HIVE and Justin Sun, CEO of Tron, for Steem. After the Ethereum founder replies to a tweet from a user about a planned Steem Hardfork, Tron CEO Justin Sun does not miss the chance to make a cheeky comment.

Steem plans hard fork of the blockchain, users should lose tokens

On February 14, 2020, Justin Sun, CEO and founder of Tron (TRX), acquired the Steemit blogging platform. Steem tokens owned by the team were given to Justin Sun. However, the community felt that Justin Sun, with the large amount of tokens as a single person, would have too much of an impact on voting. Therefore, the decision was made to withdraw the voting right from the Steem CEO's Steem Token using a soft fork.

Long story short - a new project was born: HIVE. The same ideas and content but without any influence from Justin Sun. Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin also got wind of this story. As a fan of the decentralized world, he is on the side of the community and the HIVE project. After another controversial hard fork of the Steem Blockchain was reported on Twitter, Buterin and Sun intervene in the discussion.

The blogging platform Steem is allegedly planning a hard fork, which is expected to result in a loss of over 23 million Steem tokens worth USD 5 million. According to an insider, the code for the fork is not public and accounts that pose a danger to Steem should be confiscated.

The Twitter user "btsfav" shares a post from a Chinese newspaper speculating about upcoming account confiscations. Outraged by this story, he tweets:

Steem is now a centralized scam project, there is no reason to play it down. That needs attention.

Vitalik Buterin becomes aware of the tweet and joins the discussion. He formulated his swipe on Steem in the following words:

Shouldn't every Steem user have already switched to HIVE?

Justin Sun, known as a marketing guru and hype expert, couldn't leave this comment behind. He replied to Vitalik Buterin's allusion:

Shouldn't every Ethereum user switch to TRON at this point?


But the story doesn't end there. While Justin Sun Is portrayed guilty by the media, he throws the ball back at Hive. On Twitter, he announces legal action against Hive for the theft of several million dollars:

Several million dollars were stolen from Hive Witnesses by Steemit. We are working with the law enforcement agency and will take action to raise the money. to get back. We have a lot of sympathy for all Steem Witnesses who have suffered the same through the Hive Witnesses.

Who is the most embarrassing CEO across the country?

The story starts so well that it could surpass the embarrassing reactions of CEOs from the world's largest crypto companies to JK Rowling's tweet. Because at Rowling's request, which became famous through the Harry Potter novel series, both the Binance CEO and the CEO of Coinbase embarrassed themselves. While Brian Armstrong, CEO at Coinbase, seriously replied to a fake account, Binance CEO CZ even surpassed this. He answers Rowling:

Give a woman a fish and you feed her for a day; Teach a woman to fish and you feed her for a lifetime. Not that you need to be fed, but ...

We let it affect you like this. Until the next tweet from the CEOs.
