On 24th September, Justin Sun, the CEO and Founder of Tron Foundation has asked developers to stop deploying dApps on the Ethereum blockchain, instead, shift to the Tron blockchain on his official Twitter handle.
“Yes! Please stop deploying d-apps to Ethereum and migrate to
#TRON network immediately! We are 100x faster than #ETH and fully compatible with #ethereum. We 100% guarantee better user experience!”
This comes in the limelight after a developer, Afri Schoedon announced on Twitter that the Ethereum network was at its full capacity. This was the result of cryptokittes clogging the network. The developer suggested deploying important ‘stuff’ to Ethereum Classic’s network, also referred to as the original Ethereum or the POA network, a sidechain of Ethereum network.
Afri Schoedon said on Twitter:
“Please stop deploying d-apps to Ethereum. We are running at capacity. Use
$ETC, $POA, or whatever else is available and bridge important stuff, these networks have plenty of capacity and are well supported by MyCrypto, MetaMask, etc.”
According to Blocktivity, the Ethereum blockchain was at its full capacity at press time. In addition, there are more than 59000 pending transactions.
However, this claim was met with the dissent of Vitalik Buterin, the Co-Founder of Ethereum. Vitalik stated that there are several dApps which can undergo gas utilization optimization. Moreover, he stated that if one dApp takes up a lot of gas, other dApps will be forced to utilize gas more efficiently.
According to the Foundation, the Tron Virtual Machine is completely compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine. Developers can shift to the Tron network for almost free. The virtual machine launch was marked as a step towards expanding the Tron ecosystem. The Tron dApp ecosystem is divided into 3 parts, Developer tools, Engine Tools and 3rd Partly Tools.
During the launch of the beta version of Tron Virtual Machine, the CTO of Tron, Lucien explained that the developer tools include TronWeb, TronLink, Tron Truffle and Tron Remix. These tools are similar to that Ethereum’s tools. Tron Web which was recently released is similar to Ethereum’s Web.js.
On the other side, TronLink is equivalent to Ethereum’s Metamask, Tron Truffle to Ethereum’s Truffle and the remix is Tron’s version of Ethereum’s remix.

“I love that confidence level 100% guaranteed better user experience. Well, make your work are convinced and get to top 10 list. keep it up
James Burton, another Twitterati said:
“But it’s not secure and it’s not scalable.
#TRON was dead before it started. For Christ’s sake it’s named after a movie!”
