Justin Sun Clarifies Why TRON Withdrew the $1M Twitter Hack Bounty

Also this week, Justin Sun took to Twitter to explain why TRON had withdrawn the $1 Million bounty it had set towards any information leading to the arrest of the orchestrators of the Twitter hack. Mr. Sun was responding to an article that accused the Tron foundation of sidestepping any legitimate lead that would have led to the arrest of the perpetrators. In his response, Just Sun explained the following.

We initially offered the bounty to motivate leads to the hackers but since FBI now supports this investigation, we have no choice but to be compliant w/ law enforcement. Bounty has been withdrawn to not cause disturbance to FBI’s investigation. Hope FBI catch the hackers soon!

One response to Justin’s tweet thanked the founder of TRON for his efforts and highlighted the fact that such a bounty could have impeded the progress of the FBI in finding those responsible for the hack. Below is the tweet by Justin and the response by @akiroq.
