In a single, a bunch of individuals is standing round what seems to be like the doorway to an workplace. Above a receptionist’s desk hangs the TRON emblem. Within the midst of all of this can be a row of policemen who seem like defending the cryptocurrency agency’s workplace.
One other video reveals a girl, who seems to be contained in the TRON workplace, shouting loudly at another person.
All of this has been leaped upon by many individuals within the cryptocurrency markets, most of whom don’t truly converse Chinese language, as proof of TRON being a rip-off.
After ignoring these claims for a few hours, TRON ultimately launched an announcement saying that the movies did certainly depict their workplaces.
However the individuals there, the cryptocurrency firm mentioned, had been scammed by a copy-cat agency.
“After speaking with the protesters, staff at Raybo [TRON’s Chinese partner] discovered that no less than a number of the individuals have been deceived by the so-called “Wave Subject Tremendous Neighborhood” scheme that traded on its similarity to the Chinese language-language model of TRON’s title to defraud buyers,” the agency mentioned in an announcement.
“The victims had been promised excessive charges of return on their investments within the title of TRON, BitTorrent and uTorrent.”
[email protected] and @BitTorrent is okay. All the pieces is okay. We’re getting ready for #BitTorrentSpeed launch in the present day. Cease spreading pretend information and footage.

A number of shops have been reporting that victims of the Wave Subject Tremendous Neighborhood misplaced $30 million in money earlier than the fraudsters fled.
TRON’s flamboyant CEO, who has typically been attacked as a fraudster, responded to the movies with a tweet, saying that the corporate is “fantastic.”
