Justin Sun Wins Charity Lunch with Warren Buffett, Declines Offer

After a $4,567,888 bid, Justin Sun won the 20th-anniversary charity lunch hosted by Warren Buffett, a Billionaire investor.

Justin Sun, Tron’s CEO has been parading the big win for the blockchain community which he first hinted on May 30, 2019. On June 3, 2019, he finally revealed that after a $4,567,888 bid, he won the 20th-anniversary charity lunch hosted by Warren Buffett, a Billionaire investor who is of the opinion that “Bitcoin is delusional” and “Bitcoin has no unique value at all.”

Justin Sun also made a publication on Medium outlining that the crypto community has the role of enlightening the mainstream about “blockchain’s value and proper use cases” and that is what he intends to do while at lunch with the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway.

Furthermore, Justin Sun was quick to point out that Buffett was wrong in the past about potential in firms like Inc., Alphabet, the parent of Google, and even Apple. He, therefore, insinuated that there’s a chance that the billionaire could also be wrong about cryptocurrencies. In the CEO’s own words, “even one of the most successful investors of all times can sometimes miss a coming wave.”

Binance’s CEO Declines Offer to Attend Lunch with Justin Sun and Buffett

Tron’s founder also said he will be inviting industry leaders to attend the upcoming lunch in New York. It appears Changpeng Zhao, Binance’s CEO is one of those who received an invite to the lunch, but he nicely turned it down. According to Zhao, he can’t make it because of the distance and that could be equated to turning down $1 million. He also recommended that Anthony Pompliano, Morgan Creek Digital Assets’ founder should be a part of the attendees.

Warren Buffett, on the other hand, while speaking to Reuters said:

“I’m delighted with the fact that Justin has won lunch and am looking forward to meeting him and his friends. We are going to have a good time and Glide will use his contribution to help many thousands of people.”
