Justin Sun, the founder of TRON, invited U.S. President Donald Trump to join him and several other crypto executives on a private lunch with Warren Buffett. Tron famously paid $4.6 million for the charity lunch with the Berkshire Hathaway CEO but postponed it in July due to alleged health concerns.
Warren Buffett’s charity lunch could be the biggest event in crypto
Warren Buffett’s charity lunches have been around for 20 years, but few have managed to stir as much controversy and attract as much media attention as this year’s event. The lunch, which was auctioned off for $4.6 million back in June, is yet to happen but is already regarded as one of the most notorious events in crypto this year.
Sun wanted to use the opportunity to change Buffett’s stance on Bitcoin, saying that he was a “long-term believer” of Buffett and his value investing strategy. Previously, the billionaire investor famously called Bitcoin “rat poison,” and a “delusion.”
However, Sun postponed the lunch back in July saying his health prevented him from attending the event in San Francisco. The move sparked even more controversy, as many suspected the Chinese government had something to do with it.
Will Donald Trump join Buffett and Sun in discussing the future of crypto?
Seen as a unique opportunity to bring traditional finance closer to crypto, Sun’s lunch with Buffett was set to host some of the most influential people in crypto.
