Meanwhile, BitTorrent founder and current Chia CEO Bram Cohen has publicly accused Justin Sun of not making the final payment for purchasing BitTorrent, Inc. fund TRON ($140 million).

"Anybody know if Justin Sun is hard up for cash? He isn't letting the last payment for BitTorrent get out of escrow," said Cohen.

TRON Foundation lawyers announced, that money is on escrow and is not related to Justin Sun, who has no right to dispose of them.
