The Founder of Digibyte (DGB), Justin Tate, went to war against Justin Sun, Tron (TRX), the Tron Foundation, Binance, and Changpeng Zhao on Twitter throughout the day on Wednesday December 4.
The battle started in the early morning hours, with Tate tweeting that the crypto space has been hijacked by crooks like Justin Sun and Changpeng Zhao. Tate seems to hint that he is going to do something about it, and that the “time has come”.
Tired of the bullshit in this industry. I haven’t dedicated the last 8 years of my life to sit idly by and watch #blockchain tech be hijacked by a bunch of crooks like @justinsuntron and @cz_binance. Time has come.

It seems Tate’s master plan for doing something about it was to post an 8 piece tweet series about 12 hours later. The basic summary of this series is that, according to Tate: Tron (TRX) is 100% premined, Poloniex has become a Tron (TRX) shill factory after it was taken over by Sun, Tron (TRX) is masquerading under the flag of decentralization while perverting and hijacking the crypto space, Sun still owns 34 billion Tron (TRX) and is dumping tons of money on HODLERS, Tron (TRX) nodes are largely controlled by the Tron Foundation and Binance, Tron (TRX) is not unique just heavily hyped by paid shills, and that personal data on Poloniex is now unsafe.
1/8 Im disgusted by all these #TRON trolls/bots attacking me & hyping a 100% premined & completely centralized network like its the most decentralized gift from god. Now #Poloniex has turned into a $TRX shill factory after making off w/ US customers sensitive data. Fact time:

This article will not explore which of these statements are true and which are just conjecture. In any case, Poloniex responded with a knockout punch about 4 hours after Tate’s tweet series, announcing that Digibyte (DGB) is being delisted since it no longer meets listing standards.

The Digibyte (DGB) market has responded with a modest 5% price drop. Indeed, the loss of Poloniex is not that big of a deal since Digibyte (DGB) is listed on numerous exchanges across the globe.
By not qualified you mean #DigiByte is truly decentralized, was never an ICO and isnt 100% premined? Duly noted. #Poloniex is the new scammers paradise. The less $DGB in the possesion of the #TRON con job the better. https://t.co/unhsiZjzn5

Tate got in the last word, essentially saying good riddance, and then took a well-needed break from Twitter.
