The founder of the 13th cryptocurrency according to CoinMarketCap, Justin Sun has reportedly pledged a total of $1 million to a globally known 16-year-old environment activist, Greta Thunberg.
The money once received, is believed to go to the initiatives run by the Swedish-born teenager supporting climate change and global warming. Taken the world by surprise with her compelling and eye-opening speech, Thunberg has been named 2019 Time Person of the year.
However, the announcement made through the founder’s tweet has received backlash from people speculating whether the donation will ever be made on top of the assumption that this will only be Sun’s way in riding Thunberg’s popularity.
Besides, one commenter sarcastically hinted on Sun’s failure to fulfil his words, following his announcement to give out Tesla for a prize draw in one of his tweets, however, no car was recorded to be given out.
Although many believe that the founder of TRON had tweeted purposely for a marketing stunt, it is hopeful that Sun truly intends to save the world, and the donation will be made to Greta Thunberg in supporting a greater cause of saving the environment.
