In a recent tweet, Justin Sun, CEO of Tron (TRX) Foundation, said he will help anyone who has been the victim of the unfortunate case of The DAO hack.
Blockchain never forgets! It invalidates the immutability of the #Ethereum blockchain, such that no one’s Ethereum-based assets is safe. I will personally 100% sponsor anyone who was harmed by the DAO incident to seek damages from @VitalikButerin. https://t.co/MVrk5Q6tMJ

The tweet is very harsh and directly attacks Vitalik Buterin, founder of the Ethereum blockchain, as he was responsible for leading the restoration of the blockchain to a state prior to the attack, which had caused a huge loss of ETH due to an incorrect configuration of the DAO smart contract.
This intervention would go against the blockchain philosophy of immutability and decentralization, whereby Vitalik would have behaved similarly to a government that intervenes in the economy of its own country by printing money in times of crisis.
The DAO hack marked the history of the blockchain in an incredible way and it led to the creation of Ethereum Classic (ETC), a chain that followed the correct course of history with the relative loss of funds, which instead were recovered on ETH.
Although Buterin has not yet replied publicly, contrary to what happened a few days ago, it’s possible to read the various comments from the crypto community that responded by accusing Sun of using its influence to oust some users in the Steem case, leading to the creation of another platform, Hive, with the same features as Steem.
The dispute between the two had already started yesterday morning with an attack by Buterin against Sun concerning the Steem case.
In any case, it has to be said that nobody was really damaged by the ETH fork, especially because nobody lost money in this way and those who preferred to stay on the original blockchain, the one affected by The DAO hack, followed Ethereum Classic, so it’s not clear who Justin Sun wants to help.
Except that – it was peer censored. The previous chain still exists as ETH Classic. Ethereum is a fork of ETH Classic. The DAO hacker still has the coins on the original chain. There is nothing in the contract that states they cannot fork the chain.
