This is the best explanation of the events I have found so far, @v4vapid, thank you very much. I would like to add just two points:
The Tron smart contract network, with a mission to "decentralized the internet", has been marketed as a competitor to Ethereum.
The idea that one man, TAKING OVER a decentralized platform, is on a mission to “decentralize the internet” is absurd in itself. On that oxymoron he had to be recognized as — let’s say mildly — insincere player.
On the other hand, we will probably learn more on DPoS through this attack than any other theoretical argument could provide.
As soon as I finish a job that I have accepted, I’m gonna write a text about my vision how ideal decentralized platform should look… and then I’ll hope there are some skillful programmers who could read the text and make it true.
Keep up a great work, @v4vapid
