Sun finally rises over Buffett dinner

Ross Chalmers

After months of delay, Tron founder Justin Sun finally had his much-anticipated dinner with billionaire investor Warren Buffett.

The meeting was part of a charity auction which Sun won with a whopping bid of $4.5 million.

However, questions were raised as to whether the dinner would ever take place with months of will-they-won’t-they back and forths.

Sun was laid low with kidney stones back in July 2019 meaning he had to postpone. Yet, despite the doubts, Sun posted on Twitter yesterday containing a photo of him with Buffett and a detailed thread of the conversation that took place.

Magical Crypto Friend’s podcaster and Litecoin founder Charlie Lee also appears to have been invited to the dinner. Considering the Magical Crypto Friend’s tenacity in calling out many altcoins including Ethereum, a similar platform to Tron, it seems rather ironic that Charlie Lee was also round the table.

Sun was able to provide Buffett with his first ever Bitcoin and his own wallet, along with Tron and BitTorrent tokens – both of which Sun has a leading role in.

While Buffett doesn’t sound convinced about the prospects of Bitcoin, Sun stated that Buffett “is curious to see how blockchain will play out in the payment industry in the next 10 years”.

Yet, when asked about Bitcoin, Buffett suggested that his grandchildren would still rather receive their inheritance via traditional US dollars then in crypto.


Tron’s price reacted well to the news rising a cent during the day. Sun ended his trail of tweets stating that he hopes to have a reunion meal in 2030 when Buffett will be 99 years old.
