Justin Sun, CEO of decentralized internet startup TRON, has hinted at a forthcoming partnership with an unknown firm valued at “tens of billions of dollars.”
The tweet, posted Friday, Oct. 12, gives little information, stating that:
“Finally, First time to partner with tens of billions USD valuation industry giant. Guess the name.”
Twitter followers were quick to join the guessing game: one proposed Alibaba – Sun is a graduate of Alibaba founder Jack Ma’s Hupan university, as his Twitter profile states, to which another replied: “Alibaba is worth more than 500 billion. Not tens of billions.”
This is the second time that the CEO’s tweets have made crypto headlines this month: on Oct. 8, Sun claimed the TRON token’s forthcoming update would see it beat Ethereum (ETH) on speed and EOS on cost, prompting an 8 percent surge in the asset’s value.
