The TRON CEO, Justin Sun has caused quite the round of controversy this past week. After he initially cancelled his $4.5 million charity lunch with Warren Buffett due to a fight with kidney stones, Sun has been accused of everything under the sun (pardon the pun).
On top of Sun’s suspicious apology that he posted last week, the events surrounding his whereabouts and standing with the Chinese government authorities remain a mystery after the whole kidney stones fiasco.
That being said, Sun was spotted at an influencer party last week in San-Francisco so that means he must be there!
Then other reports suggest that he isn’t even in America and that he is banned from leaving China.
It’s safe to say that this whole situation is up in the air at the minute.
But the accusations don’t stop here…
The most recent accusation on Sun comes after a Twitter rant by the founder of BitTorrent, Bram Cohen, who currently resides as the CEO of Chia Network.
Last year, Sun bought out BitTorrent from Cohen for around $145 million, making the firm and its transfer application uTorrent part of the TRON company.
Cohen has come forward with a new allegation to throw at Sun and stated that he hasn’t held up his end of the deal and hasn’t received the last payment from the BitTorrent deal.
“Anybody know if Justin Sun is hard up for cash? He isn’t letting the last payment for BitTorrent get out of escrow.”
But one of the business associates for TRON, Roy Liu has made it clear that money already put in escrow can’t be classed as Sun’s money. Additionally, he mentioned that Sun had already signed for the release of the payment that Cohen is after.
@bramcohen FYI the money in escrow is not considered Justin’s cash. Justin has signed release agreement. Buyer/seller lawyers will follow up and settle. PM @justinsuntron if you’d like to discuss. Happy to work on more deals in the future.— Roy Liu (@roylxy) July 25, 2019
Cohen responded, saying:
“Are you claiming you aren’t trying to get any of the cash back? And do you have an explanation for not signing off on it two months ago when it was scheduled to happen?
