Tron: When you give to the needy, don’t announce it with trumpets. So says Matthew 6:2, and if anyone in the cryptocurrency space should take heed of those words, it’s Justin Sun.
On Wednesday the Tron founder declared he was on his way to help fight the coronavirus. Judging by the photos Sun posted, that primarily means distributing face-masks.
Assuming there’s a shortage of face-masks in the city, it would be hard to see Sun’s actions as anything but commendable. Except for the fact that Tron, and Sun himself, will likely benefit most from this publicity stunt.
Sun made sure to mention his cryptocurrency project in his heroic announcement. As if tweeting about his charity efforts weren’t enough, he also snapped some dramatic selfies while posing with his serious face.
We even have video footage of Sun himself, breaking his back to make sure he and his Tron logo were as visible as possible.
Sun is a benevolent, jet-setting international philanthropist, guys! Have you got the message yet? Tron is a serious company!
This only days after Sun pulled a similar move on a grieving U.S. populace in the wake of Kobe Bryant’s death.
Continuing on from Matthew:
When you give to the needy, don’t let your left hand know what you’re right hand is doing.
That analogy can be contorted slightly to fit the cryptocurrency space. While you, me and everyone else all know about Justin Sun’s antics with Tron, the mainstream news media do not.
That’s why every few months you’ll find another Forbes or Bloomberg article focusing on the wonderful young entrepreneur that is Justin Sun. No mention of his long history of lies, hype, manipulation and conspiracy.
Sun knows the value of a well-timed tweet. His target audience is not you. It’s the people who know less than you.
