Jeremy Allaire, the chief executive officer of Boston-based financial technology startup Circle, agreed to an invitation today to join Justin Sun, Tron and BitTorrent CEO, for a luncheon with the influential billionaire Warren Buffet.
Jeremy, the founder of the Goldman Sachs-backed company, Circle, will be in attendance to the event alongside Charlie Lee, the creator, and founder of Litecoin. At present, Litecoin is the 4th most tremendous crypto asset in the world with a market capitalization of about 6.1 billion US dollars.
As many crypto followers know by now, Litecoin creator Charlie Lee is one of the best crypto ambassadors in the crypto ecosystem. For the past six months, the prices of Litecoin has been on fire, soaring 347 percent against the US dollar.
Since its introduction to the crypto market, Litecoin (LTC) has managed to outshine every one of the top 10 virtual assets, including EOS, Bitcoin, and Ethereum. Crypto analysts attribute the steady upsurge in Litecoin’s prices to the anticipated block reward halving event that is scheduled to take place in the next one month.
Litecoin is the only significant crypto asset that matches the performance of the number one cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, since the 2017 bull market.
The creator of Circle took to his Twitter account to express his acceptance and gratitude to Justin Sun for his invitation to the 4.6 million US dollar luncheon.
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

The highly anticipated lunch comes at a time when the crypto market is experiencing a series of intense debate and attacks in regards to the caliber and integrity of the crypto industry. Crypto critics are voicing their disapproval towards the technology, calling it everything from a trick to a junk pile. Crypto supporters, on the other hand, are calling it revolutionary, saying it is an idea whose time has come.
The situation is so severe that crypto was a key discussion point among G7 finance ministers who congregated in Chantilly France last week. In the current time, cryptocurrency cannot be ignored while the relevant authorities are yet to come up with a clear consensus on how the industry should be governed, Facebook’s entry into the market and the reality of cryptocurrency’s 2.5 billion users that are piling pressure to legislatures to act swiftly.
In the US, for instance, the ongoing Facebook entry into cryptocurrency controversy has incited two consecutive senate hearings this week. Facebook’s David Marcus was taken this week to the task to answer queries from members of the senate who belong to both the Republican and Democrat side.
Facebook intends to debut a virtual asset on a new global payment platform that is sparking more in-depth deliberations about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general. The situation is so bad that the President of the United States, Donald Trump, tweeted a critical tweet on the subject matter.
Amidst the pressure, blockchain creators continue coming up with new products and services that are changing the financial landscape and how business is being conducted globally. The CEO of Tron Foundation and BitTorrent believe both Buffet and Trump, who made extreme comments castigating cryptos, are misinformed about the technology, its potentials and its use cases around the world.
Justin Sun hopes the one-on-one meeting will allow him and his friends to broaden Warrens overview towards the virtual economy, dismissing the old line of thought that Bitcoin was just a tool for crooks.
The current crypto market is struggling and is in dire need of a miracle. The entire crypto community will be watching to see how the meeting goes as Tron CEO has so far set up a commendable lineup that is expected to come out with some good news after the meeting.
