The twitter war of words between Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin and CEO of Tron Foundation Justin Sun seems to have been re-ignited. After Buterin took a sly dig at Sun while defending his recent statements via twitter, the Tron founder has hit back with an opinion of his own.
Replying to Vitalik, Justin put forth his opinion that cryptocurrencies will take over the entire world money and will have a very big future ahead of them. Sun also extraordinarily claimed that cryptos will become the first $10 trillion market in the world, ahead of the giants Apple and Amazon from the traditional markets. He tweeted:
I do believe the entire world wealth will turn into cryptocurrencies like blackhole and grow much bigger in the future. Cryptocurrency will hit 10 trillion USD market cap before @Apple and @amazon do. We will see. Time will tell. #TRON #TRX $TRX

Earlier, the Ethereum co-founder took to Twitter to express of his annoyance with the media, who, according to him, misconstrued his statements from a recent interview regarding crypto growth. Along these lines, Buterin threw a punch at Justin Sun by stating that if the media continues to spin words of those prominent in blockchain space, they are forcing people to act in a manner similar to how Justin has been handling the media. He tweeted:
Me: obviously, let’s be realistic, the entire world wealth is not going to turn into cryptocurrencies…
Media: VITALIK IS A PESSIMIST!!!!!1!!1!
Guys, if you spin things this way you’re *incentivizing* people to act more like @justinsuntron

Justin’s reply came in response to Vitalik Buterin’s comments in the very interview, where he claimed that blockchain had reached a ceiling and that there would be no opportunity to witness a 1000-times boom in the market anymore. He said:
The blockchain space is getting to the point where there’s a ceiling in sight. If you talk to the average educated person at this point, they probably have heard of blockchain at least once. There isn’t an opportunity for yet another 1,000-times growth in anything in the space anymore.
The current scenario is just another tale from a history of social media digs at each other from Buterin and Sun. Earlier this year, the Tron founder claimed that his brainchild, TRX is superior to the ETH in many different ways. To this, Buterin rebutted rather aggressively by pointing out how Tron is better at copying existing white papers compared to Ethereum.
8. Better white paper writing capability (Ctrl+C + Ctrl+V much higher efficiency than keyboard typing new content)
