Justin Sun, CEO of the TRON foundation, has announced the time and destination for his dinner with investment legend Warren Buffett. He reported that on 12 June on Twitter:
The 20th annual @eBay #PowerOfOneLunch with @WarrenBuffett will take place July 25 in #SanFrancisco! We decided to move this year’s lunch to a restaurant in the Bay Area to further shine the spotlight on @GLIDEsf's amazing charitable efforts! More details coming soon!

Every year the GLIDE foundation organizes a charity auction with which one can win a lunch with Warren Buffett, one of the richest people on earth. Last week it appeared that Justin Sun had won the auction with a record-breaking bid of $ 4.6 million.
Normally lunch is held every year in New York, but this time the lunch takes place in the famous Silicon Valley near San Francisco in California. The dinner is scheduled for July 25.
It is known that Warren Buffett is not in favor of bitcoin (BTC) or cryptocurrencies in general. The Oracle of Omaha said before that bitcoin has no real value, is a gambling tool and called it “rat poison squared”.
In an interview with Yahoo Finance, Justin Sun says he doesn’t want to start the conversation to sell TRON but to convince Warren Buffett of the benefits of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology:
We want this lunch to be a bridge between the cryptocurrency community and the traditional investor. It may be unrealistic to convince Warren Buffett to buy cryptocurrencies in just three hours. But we want to show him the recent progress of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. It’s not just about Tron itself, it’s about crypto and blockchain, the entire industry.
Warren Buffett said earlier that he is looking forward to lunch with Justin Sun:
I am happy that Justin won the lunch and I am looking forward to meeting him and his friends. We are going to have a good time and GLIDE will use his contribution to help many thousands of people.
Justin Sun can take seven guests to the dinner. He has invited prominent figures such as Changpang Zhao, CEO of Binance, Vitalik Buterin, CEO of Ethereum and Charlie Lee, CEO of the Litecoin foundation. Changpeng Zhao has already canceled.
TRON (TRX) is currently the 12th biggest crypto currency by market capitalization.
