Justin Sun, CEO of the TRON (TRX) Foundation, won a lunch last month with investment legend Warren Buffett in a charity auction with a record-breaking bid of $ 4.6 million. The lunch is scheduled for July 25.

Justin Sun is allowed to bring a number of guests to the dinner and he has invited a number of prominent figures from the cryptocurrency industry in recent days. On July 20, he invited Helen Hai, head of the Binance Charity Foundation. Binance Charity is the philanthropic branch of the cryptocurrency exchange Binance. She immediately accepted the invitation:

Yesterday, on July 21, Yoni Assai, founder and CEO of eToro trading platform, was invited. Unlike the other names on the list, he did not wait for an invitation but asked Sun for a place at the table.

On July 19, Jeremy Allaire, co-founder and CEO of cryptocurrency payment service Square, accepted an invitation for lunch with the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway:

Charlie Lee, CEO of the Litecoin (LTC) Foundation, was the first person to be invited to the lunch. He had already accepted the invitation last month. Livio Weng, CEO of cryptocurrency exchange Huobi, was the second person to accept the invitation early this month.

In addition, Justin Sun had also invited Chanpeng Zhao (CZ), CEO of Binance, but he has already canceled. CZ then introduced Anthony Pompliano, CEO of Morgan Greek Digital, but he has not yet received an invitation. Another guest who is invited is none other than President Trump. However, Trump did not respond to the invitation.

Justin Sun has received some criticism from the crypto community that he is inviting too many people exclusively from the cryptocurrency industry and that it might be useful to also invite people who are more familiar with the traditional investment market. Gabor Gurbacs, director of Digital Asset Strategy at VanEck, says:

It is a shame not to have anyone from both the Bitcoin side and the institutional / traditional financial side at that meeting! It could lead to a better conversation and Warren could learn from people who speak the language and science of both worlds.

In addition to the above five guests, Justin Sun is allowed to bring two more. Lunch has since moved from the usual New York restaurant to Silicon Valley near San Francisco.

It will be interesting if this group can convince Warren Buffett of the value and usefulness of cryptocurrencies. It is no secret that the Oracle of Omaha is not in favor of cryptocurrency. He used to call bitcoin (BTC) “rat poison in the square”.
