On February 17, Fuzhou young man Zhao Yu asked help in weibo, saying that he had been physically injured due to having hurt someone when he was helping a victim, female neighbor of sexual abuse of and was seriously injured.
He was arrested for 14 days for alleged intentional injury. If you are brave enough, you may have to face the subsequent jail and large-scale economic compensation, which means that it is unacceptable and requires innocence. The case quickly triggered widespread concern in society.
On the second day (February 18th), Justin Sun, the founder of TRON, announced on his social media that he would provide a total of 10 million yuan in support for Zhao Yu and attached a detailed subsidy program. As soon as the plan came out, netizens also exploded into two sides.
One side is the solidarity of the justice knight, and the other is the questioning of the marketing. This is not the first time he has been in such a paradox of public opinion.
Not long ago, he also promised to help the founder of the small yellow bike, Dai Wei, refund the deposit of 10,000 users, and it was also criticized by everyone.

However, his concern is not limited to this. Along the way, this highly controversial entrepreneur on the hot spot knows that a simple business can only make a profitable enterprise, and only with a sense of social responsibility can a great enterprise. This is his vision and expectations.
In the interview, when asked if he met the entrepreneur’s image in his definition, he did not make a clear statement, but he still clearly felt his high demand for his entrepreneurial identity.
In dealing with entrepreneurship, he always insists on trusting users and the market. He hopes that the Tron under his leadership can become a new ecosystem of open source, freedom, equality and distribution, serving the global developers and users.

The following is a textual record of the interview, edited by the Phoenix Network Blockchain:
| “I barely slept and was thinking of what could I do to provide help to him”
Phoenix blockchain: You have always been concerned about social issues, how did you notice Zhao Yu case?
Justin Sun: Yesterday morning (February 18th), I was concerned about the weibo. I feel that the core of the reason that I am particularly concerned about is that the good guys are not getting reward and was brave enough to be jailed. After watching the news.
I was very uncomfortable at night, didn’t fall asleep, and always thought about what could I do to help.
Phoenix blockchain: Have you contacted Zhao Yu? What are you expecting?
Justin Sun: At present, I paid attention to him on Weibo, and I have also sent a private letter contact, and I also got in touch with Zhao Yu’s lawyer. I feel that I must respect Zhao Yu’s wishes. He hopes that we can help us. The current situation is that we are on standby.
I hope that Zhao Yu will finally get a judgment and will not be subject to civil and criminal responsibility, and that the perpetrator can be punished. Of course, if the results are not satisfactory, we can accept it and provide Zhao Yu with the support as stipulated in our support plan.
Phoenix Blockchain: If the final result is as you announced, would you give up to 10 million?
Justin Sun: We will provide Zhao Yu with funding in accordance with our support plan and do more within our capabilities.
| “Zhao Yu needs to be rewarded”
Phoenix Blockchain: Someone say you are just doing marketing, what do you think?
Justin Sun: I personally have no intention of marketing. I hope that Zhao Yu can get help, at least I feel no longer alone. I feel that funding is the best place to help him, and it can also inspire people in society to do more good things. And such support is also relatively modest.
I also respect the law, respect the considerations and evidence of the public security organizations. Sometimes the boundaries are really vague. The judgment and handling of the law are both respectful and acceptable, but it is still the sentence that cannot allow the hero to bleed.
Phoenix Blockchain: Last year you helped Dai Wei, creator of OFO to return deposit to 10,000 people, this year you helped Zhao yu and got praised, still someone say you are just saying good words, what do you think?
Justin Sun: A lot of people does not know that Dai Wei is angel investor of Tron. Of course Dai Wei made a huge profit in investing Tron. When I needed Dai Wei, he helped me, and when he needs help, I would like to help him.
Phoenix Blockchain: Do you think the high-profile marketing help you in your business or bring you trouble?
Justin Sun: I did not think of much, I just want to help and of course I am 100% focused on Tron development.

Phoenix Blockchain: Does this have relation with Tron?
Justin Sun: currently not, just my personal deed.
Phoenix Blockchain: The bigger the platform, the bigger it bears responsibility. What do you think of social influence should the company have?
Justin Sun: This is indeed the case, the enterprise is growing larger, and the responsibility is getting bigger. I also hope that I and the Tron can better bear the expectations that the society gives us. At the same time, it can also be better to have blockchain technology change the life of mankind.
Phoenix Blockchain: In the comment of your weibo, a lot of people forwarded and praised. It shows that as long as you are helping people, it is acceptable to some extent that you do marketing at the same time. What do you think of balancing marketing and social responsibility?
Justin Sun: I personally think that corporate social responsibility is a must. Every entrepreneur needs to have a sense of social responsibility. Many times, when making decisions, we need to consider not only business negotiations, but also social responsibility.
In particular, your vision values are not just about making a very profitable business, but also when you want to be a great company.
Phoenix Blockchain: A lot of people praise you as new era entrepreneur, what do you think of it?
Justin Sun: In the comments of thousands of netizens, I also saw a message that impressed me. I borrowed it here:
Entrepreneur of the new era, I personally think that there should be a position, not awkward, not bullying and fearing. They will have many shortcomings, and they are not the standard shortcomings.
They are usually unknown in their own industry, do their jobs, and serve users and customers. But when we have some scenes in our life, they can stand up. Decisive role in maintaining social fairness and justice. When they grow stronger as a group, the whole society can give hope and confidence.
| “Users decide products”
Phoenix Blockchain: What is right and wrong things?
Justin Sun: I personally think that if you are on the road to entrepreneurship, it is the right thing that the user approves is correct, and the things that the user does not recognize are wrong.
Never ask the CEO to decide the product, but let the user and the market decide the product.
Phoenix network blockchain: What is the core value of Tron in business? What kind of company do you want to make Tron into?
Sun Yuchen: The wave field is a new ecology. It is an Internet-based operating system. In the future, I hope that the wave field can carry the vast majority of online entertainment needs of all human beings.
It can be as open source, free, equal, and distributed as IOS and Android systems. Service to developers and users around the world.
