On Thursday, the TRON Foundation made the announcement that Sun dined with CEO and chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, after Buffett suggested a meeting. The event took place at an exclusive country club from Omaha, Buffett’s home city. Sun came with Charlie Lee, the creator of Litecoin, eToro’s CEO Yoni Assia and Chris Lee, Huobi’s CFO. Helen Hai, the head of Binance Charity was present too.
Sun Honored and Grateful for the Dinner
Making a statement after dinner, Sun said he’s honored and grateful to have heard about Buffett’s vision and to be shared some of his wisdom. He also mentioned that he would take his advice when it comes to building a better ecosystem at TRON and conducting blockchain-based businesses or going beyond. However, he didn’t specify anything else about their discussions.
Sun Placed a $4.5 Million Bid for the Dinner
Warren Buffett is known for auctioning a supper he attends each year. The funds of the participants are directed to charity. Sun was the one who placed a record-breaking bid of $4.5 million at the Glide Foundation, back in 2019. While he was supposed to attend the dinner back in July, he had to postpone it for he allegedly had kidney stones. However, a news outlet from China reported the next day that he had to stay in China because authorities in the country were investigating him. He appeared in a live stream video in San Francisco later, so the news that he couldn’t leave China for the dinner may not have been true.
Buffett Is Not a Fan of Crypto
Buffett has never been a fan of crypto and even called Bitcoin (BTC) once a “rat poison squared”. While TRON didn’t make any comment about the discussions held at the famous dinner, Sun said he hopes to build a bridge between traditional and institutional investors, also between crypto and blockchain technology. Warren Buffett’s assistant didn’t comment anything.
