Justin Sun was urged to conduct a 1 billion TRX token burn by the TRON community after it was revealed the TRX coin supply would exceed the previously stated 100 billion hard cap.
But the real controversy came hours later, when Sun attempted to absolve himself of any responsibility for removing the old hard cap. The TRON founder published a Medium blog where the reason for TRON’s hard cap removal was explained.Justin Sun Lying About TRON Block Reward Reshuffle?
Sun pointed to last year’s reshuffling of the TRX block rewards, which increased the inflation rate to almost 2 billion TRX per year. Meanwhile, the TRON hard cap was removed completely.

Sun wrote:The original, initial token issuance of 100 billion TRX is the only decision made by the TRON Foundation.
