Tron’s Justin Sun Invites Press for ‘Power of One Lunch’ With Warren Buffett to Take Place July 25
There has been a deliberate effort to bring more institutional support into the world of cryptocurrency and obviously one of the ways that this will be achieved is by convincing powerful business people to get behind cryptocurrency especially since several of them have criticized crypto in the past and one of these is Warren Buffett who is a stanch crypto critic.
However, there was some sign of good news as a few weeks ago Justin Sun, the CEO of Tron, was able to win a lunch meeting with Warren Buffett through a charity auction. For many, this was a chance to finally find some middle ground with the business icon with regards to crypto and Justin Sun intends on taking full advantage of the situation. He took to Twitter recently to announce that the lunch meeting will be taking place at Quince in San Francisco, a three-Michelin-starred restaurant in Jackson Square.
“After narrowing the choices to three, I ultimately chose Quince because its food represents the traditional and the upstart — much like the participants in the lunch itself,”
A Meeting With Buffet
Justin Sun has also invited the press to a conference that will be held before and after the lunch and while Warren Buffett will only participate in the first, Sun will participate in both. The restaurant has already announced that they will keep cherry Coke, which is Warren Buffett's favorite drink, on the menu for the event. This should be a starting step towards getting the legendary investor in a good mood to talk crypto and Sun seems determined to take full advantage of this opportunity seeing as Buffet has interest in stocks and not much else. Justin Sun is allowed to bring the number of people along for the lunch and has already stated a few names.
Sun’s strategy so far is believed to work in three parts with the first being that he will make reference to some of the world's biggest companies such as Facebook and JPMorgan who have invested in crypto and blockchain as a whole which shows that the industry truly is viable if such big corporations are throwing their weight behind them.
After this has taken place Justin has stated that he plans to speak to Buffett about his own projects such as Tron and BitTorrent and explain to a degree what they are about and how they are changing the world in their own right.
“I’ll talk to Buffett and other attendees about how we’re integrating blockchain into BitTorrent, with its 100 million monthly active users and what we’re doing to expand and nurture the TRON blockchain,”
The last part of the strategy for Justin Sun is that he hopes to simply enjoy a good meal with Buffet which might help spark some sort of relationship between the two men. Regardless of what happens this lunch can serve as a touchstone between the world of traditional finance and the future that is cryptocurrency and should Sun succeed in convincing one of the biggest investors in the world as well as one of the biggest crypto critics to change his tune then there is no saying what could be achieved from here on out.
