TRON CEO Justin Sun received plenty of criticism over his previous Tesla giveaway on March. The promotion was a simple one. All users had to do was follow Justin Sun & retweet his Tweet. The winner was supposed to be selected randomly, using a lottery system. Unfortunately for Sun, the lottery was suspected to be rigged by many on Twitter. The "random" winner was supposedly someone who worked for the TRON Foundation. This caused a twitter-storm backlash and embarrassment to Tron. Sun later committed to a new lottery, this time with 2 Teslas.


Earlier today Sun took to Twitter to announce 2 winners of the new Tesla giveaway. The 2 winners confirmed that they have received the prize, although it wasn't exactly a Tesla. Apparently, Sun gifted the winners with the equivalent value of $28,000 in TRX. As per the tweet:

"To bring more transparency to #TRON community, I want to congratulate @LeoHuynhPro, the winner of 28,000 #USD that is equivalent to #Tesla price, thank you for your support to #TRON, and wish the community members all the best! #TRX $TRX"

Unfortunately for the winners, it appears that despite receiving the prize, they are still a bit far from owning a Tesla. The cheapest model car that Tesla offers consumers is the model S, which costs roughly $35,000. It appears that Sun is still $7,000 short of his promise of a Tesla for fans.
