The question on the minds of the crypto space today was whether Justin Sun’s grand act of generosity was actually staged. The evidence presented is pretty compelling, and our very own @CryptoJohnGalt was one of the first to break it down and explain why it looked like this was nothing more than a smoke and mirrors publicity stunt.
The grand ‘Global Appreciation Campaign’ was unveiled on 12th March, promising a $20m ‘free’ cash airdrop. Except it wasn’t really free, you had to cash in your USDT (Tether) and hold the newly unveiled USDT-TRON Tether token for a series of incentives presented as an interest payment over the course of the next 100 days.
A few days later, Justin achieved a huge milestone in his social media presence, breaking 1m followers after having recently humble

Update 3: The original winner speaks up, and Justin offers up a consolation prize of tickets and flights to a Tron conference and the hashtag #JusticeForUgar is born.
