The famous CEO and founder of TRON, Justin Sun shot up in the news this week after he won a charity dinner with one of the richest people in the world, Warren Buffett.
Given that almost every mainstream outlet wrote about the Chinese entrepreneur, who happens to be at the helm of another major cryptocurrency company, it doesn’t shock us to know that that Sun jumped on Google Trends after getting major media exposure.
I officially announce I’ve won the record-setting 20th-anniversary charity lunch hosted by @WarrenBuffett. I’ll also invite #blockchain industry leaders to meet with a titan of investment. I hope this benefits everyone. #TRON #TRX #BTT #BitTorrent pic.twitter.com/EMZ4TMhgpR

This is the first major breakthrough into the mainstream for Sun despite having more than a million followers on Twitter.
As reported by U.Today, the TRON CEO had to pay around $4.5 million in order to make this happen by putting in a bid so he could have a chance to sit down with the American titan. Since winning the dinner, Sun has said that he will be inviting a few blockchain friends with him in an attempt to encourage Buffett to the light side of crypto.
This initiative is very bullish news for the crypto industry. If Buffett – who once compared the leading cryptocurrency ‘rat poison’ – shows some love for Bitcoin following the lunch with Sun then who knows what will happen.
Then again, there’s always the chance that he might not even care.
