Justin Sun takes shots at Vitalik Buterin
Justin Sun, Founder of Tron, CEO of Steemit and Bittorrent took direct shots at Vitalik Buterin, Co-Founder of Ethereum saying that in future, Ethereum Classic would overtake Ethereum.
Steem ecosystem was overtaken by Justin Sun. Hive is a forked version of Steem that is supported by older supporters. These supporters include people who are not happy by the hostile takeover by Justin Sun.
Justin Sun tweeted,
I am watching closely if Ethereum Classic overtakes Ethereum. It would be a strong demonstration that decentralization and immutable quality of the blockchain really matters.
He tweeted that as reply to following tweet by Vitalik.
This seems like a potential positive watershed moment in the history of blockchain governance. If Hive (the fork) overtakes Steem it would be a strong demonstration that the community is in charge and cannot be bought.

Interestingly, Ethereum forked from Ethereum Classic back in 2016. The ETH-ETC fork was about the ETH community against a scammer. However, we can understand why Vitalik is tweeting about Hive and Steem.
Decentralization and immutability are obviously things you dislike judging by your recent hostile takeover of the Steem blockchain and the censorship you have put in place on Steemit smh you are not fooling anyone…
