Justin Sun created quite a buzz following his decision to step down as the CEO of the Tron Foundation. What accelerated this buzz was the fact that he was joining the government of Grenada as the ambassador to the World Trade Organization.

Meanwhile, TRX followed the market sentiment and plummeted by 15 percent over the last couple of hours. At press time, Tron was trading for $0.07.

As LUNA succumbed to a low of $0.9, Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance took a dig at UST by tweeting, “One over leveraged “stable” coin….”
