Tron founder and CEO Justin Sun has finally had his charity lunch with Berkshire Hathaway chairman and famous billionaire Warren Buffett after a series of delays last year.
On Jan. 23, Sun met with Buffett in a private not-for-profit country club in Nebraska. The guests also included the founder of the Litecoin Foundation, Charlie Lee, the CFO of Huobi, Chris Lee, the head of the Binance Charity Foundation, Helen Hai, and the CEO of eToro, Yoni Assia. The luncheon lasted more than three hours.
Commenting on the much-anticipated event, Sun said:
“It was really an honor and I’m grateful for Mr. Buffett’s dinner, wisdom, and vision. I’ll always remember his kindness and support, and will take Mr. Buffett’s advice and guidance to make Tron a better ecosystem, business with all the partners in the blockchain space and beyond.”
Sun won a charity auction on eBay to have lunch with Warren Buffett last June. Sun’s winning bid was around $4.5 million, the highest ever in the event’s 20-year history. However, the Tron CEO had to postpone due to medical reasons, and in July announced that he would reschedule his charity lunch with Buffett “very soon”.
Ahead of the postponement, Sun had notably extended an invitation for the event to United States President Donald Trump, following the president’s scathing remarks about cryptocurrencies on social media.
The next time Sun began speaking about the lunch was last September when he rescheduled the meal again.
(1/12) Most delicious meal ever! Thks @WarrenBuffett for taking us to Happy Hollow Club! $4.56 MIL for a $515.05 dinner was money well spent! The insights I received are priceless. I enjoyed every bite with my friends @SatoshiLite, @ChrisLEE_Crypto, @HelenHaiyu, @yoniassia!
According to Sun, the $515.05 dinner was “money well spent” and the “most delicious meal ever.”
