By CCN Markets: Tron CEO Justin Sun has set July 25 as the date for his $4.6 million lunch with billionaire investor Warren Buffett. And it’s going to take place in Silicon Valley instead of Manhattan, as originally scheduled.
Justin Sun’s Bid Was Record-Setting
Sun made the announcement on Twitter, where he revealed that he chose San Francisco to shine a spotlight on the city’s homelessness crisis. The $4.6 million that Sun shelled out was the highest ever paid for the annual charity lunch.
“The 20th annual eBay Power Of One Lunch with Warren Buffett will take place July 25 in San Francisco! We decided to move this year’s lunch to a restaurant in the Bay Area to further shine the spotlight on Glide’s amazing charitable efforts! More details coming soon!”
The Glide Foundation is a San Francisco charity that Buffett’s late wife, Susan, had supported. Glide provides meals for the homeless and helps domestic violence victims.

When Sun won the auction last week, the location for the lunch was supposed to be Smith & Wollensky, a steakhouse in New York. However, Sun has decided to switch things up.
One thing Sun has not changed is his goal, which is to promote cryptocurrencies to Warren Buffett. As CCN reported, the legendary investor has derisively dismissed bitcoin as “rat poison squared.”
Buffett has also repeatedly trashed bitcoin and all cryptocurrencies as worthless,
