Sun is infamous for taking a dig at competitors and overhyping events, which has led people from the community to criticize him for his tactics. This time, the passive declaration of the partnership with former Apple co-founder is also being viewed as an overhyped announcement. The prime reason being that only Justin Sun spoke about the partnership, however, Wozniak did not mention anything about it.
A user by the name of DigiClay said, “Surprise! Another announcement about another fake partnership…how original. Get some new material you crook.”
Regarding the meeting with Justin Sun, Wozniak tweeted,

Wozniak is admittedly quite keen on the industry and has shown interest in blockchain and Bitcoin.
Announcing a partnership with a traditional giant may seem quite lucrative for the TRON network, and resultantly, the token saw a 3% rise within a few hours. However, most of the top 20 cryptocurrencies saw a steady rise during the same period, with Bitcoin rising more than 4%.
There are speculations that Sun wants to uplift his brainchild project, which has remained stagnant for a long period now. That said, any further information hasn’t come out yet, as both Sun and Wozniak haven’t shared any concrete information.
