Torrentfreak.com reached out to Bram Cohen:

Cohen hasn’t said anything in public about the TRON deal, and isn’t very talkative, but when we reached out using an alternative email the response was clear.

“I have no involvement with Tron,” Cohen noted.

We followed up by asking whether this means that he no longer has an official role at BitTorrent Inc. The response was again short but clear.

“That is correct,” he said.
