SharkTron scams 80 per cent of TRON community, says Twitter user

While the news is unconfirmed, the community seems to be in an uproar at the suspected funny business with what is a massive chunk of assets.

Some Twitter users are already reporting between 366-400 million TRX missing from the supply.

With speculation reigning supreme for a few hours prior to this reporting, the Tron Foundation has confirmed the community's bad feeling, arguing that a theft had indeed taken place.

The Foundation said it's in communication with Binance and advised members who have suffered a loss to open an immediate police report and assist authorities for the recovery of their missing funds.

Yet, the scam wasn't quite so unexpected. As early as October 28, some users have said that SharkTron would shut down pages and cut access as soon as a deposit has been made.

Traders claimed that they had trusted SharkTron because of the company being allegedly whitelisted by JustSwap, a decentralised crypto exchange created by Justin Sun and carrying his benchmark of approval.

A Twitter user took the fight to Justin Sun, TRON founder, arguing that 80% of the community had been scanned under his watch. Some low-key users went so far as to accuse Sun as aware of the scam and complicit with it.

These statements, though, have no shred of evidence to them. The saga continues.
