Circle’s Jeremy Allaire Will Be Joining Justin Sun For Upcoming Lunch Meeting With Warren Buffett
- A recent tweet released by Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire has confirmed that he will be joining Sun on his lunch date with Warren Buffett on the 25th of July (2019).
- The Tron topman has also confirmed that Litecoin inventor Charlie Lee too will be joining him for the above stated event.
As most of our regular readers are probably well aware of, a highly-anticipated ‘Crypto Power Lunch’ is scheduled to take place on the 25th of this month between investment guru Warren Buffett and Tron CEO Justin Sun. However, it has now come to light that this meeting will now include Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire as well.
In regards to this latest development, it seems as though Sun reached out to Allaire with an invitation a couple of days back. In response, the Circle executive issued the following statement online:
“Hi Justin, I would be honored to join you and Warren Buffett next week to discuss crypto!! Count me in. Crypto is now a major global policy issue.”
Hi Justin, I would be honored to join you and @WarrenBuffett next week to discuss crypto!! Count me in. Crypto is now a major global policy issue and there is a great deal for Mr Buffet to understand and for us to learn from him as well. https://t.co/PGY8bXQBcZ

More On The Matter
In addition to Allaire joining Sun for the upcoming lunch event, it appears as though Litecoin creator Charlie Lee too will be attending the $4.6 million lunch with Buffett. According to information available online, this meeting of the minds will take place at a top-tier San Francisco restaurant called Quince. It seems as though Justin chose San Francisco as his preferred lunch destination because it houses the headquarters for Buffet’s Glide Foundation.
Glide is a local charity organization that Buffett has been supporting for many years — mainly because his late wife had been closely associated with the foundation for decades. Members of the Glide Foundation provide meals for the homeless and help out individuals who have been victims of domestic violence and abuse.
Other Key Points Worth Highlighting
Sun recently took to the internet to ask his followers about what questions he should pose to Buffett during their upcoming meeting.
In this regard, one individual suggested that Sun should ask Buffett about “distributed token economies” and their true monetary potential. Similarly, another person wanted to ask Buffett whether he plans to invest in any blockchain-related businesses anytime soon.
It should be made clear that Warren Buffett is not a big fan of crypto and has often likened the asset class to ‘rat poison’ in the past.
Sun has also made it clear to his followers that one meeting will most likely not change the Berkshire Hathaway CEOs mind (regarding digital currencies).
While a lot of people believe that Sun is doing all this just as a PR exercise to promote his company, he has time and again come forth and said that he will not be pushing any agendas related to Tron during their lunch meeting, rather he intends to serve as an ambassador for the entire crypto ecosystem. However, only time will reveal Sun’s true intentions.
