Justin Sun, the founder of TRON, is capitalizing on a sign of weakness in the Ethereum network. Sun has called on developers to stop deploying decentralized applications (dApps) to Ethereum and instead move to Tron. Sun’s strategy, which played out on Twitter, comes on the heels of remarks out of the Ethereum dev community warning that the network was running at full capacity.
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! #TRX $TRX https://t.co/gRCtOC0rIS

Seizing the Moment
In recent days, Afri Schoedon, a developer for Ethereum, announced that the network had reached full capacity. Ethereum Co-Founder Vitalik Buterin immediately disputed this statement, reminding everyone to be “looking into second-layer solutions.”
Tron’s Sun didn’t skip a beat, calling for all developers of dApps to immediately transition to the TRON network. The response on social media was mixed, with some followers cheering the project and others criticizing it.
Sun “100% guarantees a better user experience” and describes the TRON network as 100x faster than Ethereum’s. Recently, the TRON Foundation published a report illustrating strong growth, underscoring the advancement of the project.
Meanwhile, TronWalletMe 1.2.7 update was just released and includes features like “fingerprint, touch ID and face ID,” according to a tweet that also indicated the Android version is ready to download on Google Play.
