Sun’s recent woes
Justin Sun was yet again in the spotlight as he caused an uproar following Tron Foundation benefiting from the historic $2 Trillion US CARES stimulus package. The foundation received subsidies $ 2million while smaller businesses struggled to access the funds due to the competitive requests and requirements to qualify for the package.
His recent woes with the STEEM community hasn’t helped his case. He acquired Steemit, the largest Dapp on the STEEM Blockchain where he oversaw a ‘hostile takeover’ on the Blockchain by rallying votes from Binance, Poloniex, and Huobi behind his witness. This led to some disgruntled users initiating a hard fork and onboarding the Hive. STEEM has since rolled out an update that members of the hive believe are punitive measures for opposing his takeover. The purge saw over 23.6 million STEEM tokens valued at $5 M seized from 64 witnesses dubbed ‘rogue actors’.
