On 30th July 2019, Ethereum, developed by Vitalik Buterin celebrated its fourth foundation anniversary. It marked its fourth year since Ethereum had been officially launched. A Russian-Canadian programmer, Vitalik Buterin developed Ethereum, which is an open blockchain platform that lets people build and use decentralized applications that run on blockchain technology.
On Ethereum one can write code that controls money and builds applications accessible anywhere in the world. Ethereum is also being used as a platform to launch other cryptocurrencies. Ethereum is considered as the second-best choice after Bitcoin. Vitalik Buterin marked his wishes through the platform of twitter. Coincidently, it was also the 29th birthday of Tron COE Justin Sun.
Happy 4th birthday @ethereum!

Tron, founded in the year 2017 by a Singapore based non-profit organization called the Tron Foundation, is a blockchain-based decentralised platform that aims to build a global digital content system. Replying to the founder of Ethereum’s tweet, Justin Sun created controversy by asking Vitalik Buterin to wish him too as he shared his birthday on the same day as that of the foundation anniversary of Ethereum. This tweet of Justin Sun was highly criticized by the crypto community, labeling him to be immature.

These two blockchain juggernauts share a history of the rivalry. Furthermore, Justin Sun believes that it is the rivalry between the two of them that has been beneficial for the sector at large. This tussle between Vitalik Buterin and Justin Sun stretches back to the origins of TRON. Vitalik Buterin highly criticized Sun’s blatant plagiarism in TRON’s whitepaper. Buterin has earlier stated that he will be lost hope in humanity if Ethereum is overtaken by TRON ever in further. Justin Sun has also been criticised globally for his recent controversies.

The most recent one was when Justin Sun donated $4.5 million to charity to have lunch with crypto-skeptic Warren Buffet and also included many tycoons but canceled it last moment due to ‘kidney stones’. However, a Chinese media company claimed that he lied about the kidney stones as he was being held by Chinese authorities in China due to illegal activities such as illegal gambling, scamming and running a pornography business.
