The Wave Field Fiasco
The swindling firm, according to thousands of victims, presented itself as one of the Tron’s so-called “Super Representative.” Part of the reason why investors believed Wave Field Super Community was the branding itself. The real Tron platform is known as “Wave Field” in China. The similar names allegedly tricked investors into putting their money into the Wave Field Super Community.
Nevertheless, the investors who intruded the Tron office today alleged that its founder & CEO Justin Sun was a silent accomplice behind the Ponzi scam. They accused Mr. Sun of failing to disassociate Tron and BitTorrent, the other company he owns, from the Wave Field Super Community. Furthermore, the victims alleged that Sun knowingly remained mum on the matter because his firms were benefitting from increased activity and liquidity.

The founder’s response came on the day when one of the victims, a single mother named Xia Bing, had committed suicide. He posted on Weibo that investors should remain cautious while investing in firms using the Tron name.
The Tron Foundation today clarified that it had warned investors about the Wave Field Super Community scam in January. It stated:
“TRON warned investors on its WeChat messaging group, Wei Bo official channels — Wei Bo and Dou Yin, etc. — to beware of potentially fraudulent schemes. The company posts similar warnings in its English-language territories and has a Community team that operates across the globe to answer investor questions and listen to problems.”
Mati Greenspan, the senior market analyst at eToro, supported Tron in hopes to eliminate the rumor further, stating:
“A lot of misinformation floating around, so to clarify. The Tron office wasn’t raided by the cops. Tron was the one who called the police to protect them from investors who are upset that Tron scammed them.”

At the same time, the Tron’s market capitalization fell from the local top of $2.368 billion to as low as $2.246 billion.
