Justin Sun, the Founder and CEO of Tron Foundation, has always been in the limelight because of the brawl with Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum. Additionally, Ethereum, the third biggest cryptocurrency and the leading smart contract platform, has always been the biggest competitor of Tron, with the network surpassing that of Ethereum’s on several terms.

Now, Sun is back in the spotlight because of his invitation to one of the Ethereum Classic’s development team. The development team happens to be Ethereum Classic Development Company aka ETCDEV, which recently announced that they would be shutting down their operations.

The team has been responsible for taking care of the main client of Ethereum Classic, Classic Geth, ever since the occurrence of the DAO hack that resulted in split chains. The team is also known for the development of Emerald, Sputnik VM and Orbita. The reason for the company wrapping up their operations is owed to be the bear market, which resulted in the team failing to raise the sufficient fund required for the development of one of the leading projects.

Justin Sun said on his official Twitter handle:

“You can join #TRON family! Actually one developer in @etcdev has contacted us. #TRX $TRX”

Chris Tannahill, a Twitterati said:

“Despite what people may say, I think you’re doing some great things in this space, Justin  Some projects have brilliant ideas that are not sustainable in the current bear market. It’s awesome that Tron is looking to support developers through these difficult times. Keep it up”

PabloTheViking, another Twitterati said:

“Very clever move, Justin! This might turn out to be the smartest move you have ever done to lay the foundation for future growth of the Tron platform. Developers and applications are key to win this battle!”

Recently, Sun stated that Tron would be building a fund in order to rescue Ethereum [ETH] and EOS developers from the “collapse” of their respective platforms. He stated that the fund will be of help to them only if the developers chose to migrate their dApps to Tron.
