Justin Sun will donate such amount to the young environmental activist Greta Thunberg, who showed up at COP25. This decision caused controversy in the crypto ecosystem.
The young environmental activist, Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish girl who has gained worldwide fame, has certainly moved the hearts of many for her cause in favor of ecology. As the founder of Tron, Justin Sun has been one of them.
Sun promised to donate USD $1 million to Greta’s management, specifically to its activities to increase global awareness of the climate crisis. Very recently the teenager participated with a talk at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change 2019, COP25, which was held in Spain, a conference whose results, as evidenced by the media, have been of failure.
In fact, despite the amount of negotiations that were framed within the COP25 program, it finally came to a standstill, which has been much criticized by experts. In fact, the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, tweeted that he was “disappointed with the results of # COP25”
Insight on Greta
Greta – the communication phenomenon on the subject – was born in 2003 and since very young she has had great concern about climate change, so much so that she stopped talking and eating. She was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome and selective mutism. She has said that diagnosis considers him a “superpower.”
Since last year he began making school strikes and public speeches to make visible the environmental problem and since then he has become well known throughout the world and has participated in various conferences and forums. The last was COP25.
The activist generates in some great admiration, while others look at her with evil eyes and ensure that behind her there are groups of power. However, it seems to be the first trend that wins. For example, she has received about twelve awards in the last twelve months and recently the Times named her “person of the year”.
Justin Sun said on Twitter that he will donate to Greta Thunberg
Apparently one of the adolescent’s admirers is the founder of Tron (TRX), Justin Sun, who publicly pledged to donate USD $1 million to his cause.
Sun tweeted today:
As a young entrepreneur, I share @ GretaThunberg’s passion to change the world. Crypto will contribute immensely on reducing carbon footprint by implementing decentralized settlement. I would like to personally commit USD $ 1 million to @GretaThunberg’s initiative. # cop25″
However, the crypto community on Twitter is divided regarding Sun’s decision to donate to Greta. Some say that the girl is a simple puppet and a fraud, while others applauded the initiative of the CEO of Tron. There were even cynics who said it is probably nothing more than a Sun strategy for his cryptocurrency to go up.
