Tron’s and BitTorrent’s CEO and Tron’s founder, Justin Sun won the right to have lunch with the legendary investor, and crypto skeptic, Warren Buffet. The meeting will happen in three days, and it’s created a lot of buzz inside and out the crypto-verse because Mr. Sun, young as he is, has managed to become a personality in the business world as well as in the blockchain world.
And Mr. Sun is inviting a few good friends to join him at the event with Mr. Buffet. He per usual announced his plans using his Twitter account. Tron CEO said that he’s inviting Yoni Assia, CEO, and Founder of eToro platform to join him. In his own words:

Mr. Assia answered Mr. Sun’s tweet almost immediately expressing his gratefulness and high expectations about the upcoming meeting. He tweeted:
Justin, it is my honor to join you for lunch with @WarrenBuffett , A big step for bridging between the traditional finance world and the new one !
There is a huge opportunity to use #BlockChainForGood and happy to share our research on @TheGoodDollar with #TheOracleFromOmaha https://t.co/H7oSxO5QRg

Jeremy Altaire, who serves as Circle’s CEO, will also join the party, courtesy of Justin Sun.
Mr. Sun paid USD 4.57 million as a donation for the Gilde Foundation to earn the chance to have a meal with Mr. Buffet and to bring along some friends. Mr. Sun’s interest is in bringing the cryptocurrency world into Mr. Buffet’s attention, especially the Tron blockchain project, which is Mr. Sun’s own. Mr. Warren Buffet, who is one of the most successful investors in the world, is not precisely a believer in cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.
In fact, he’s one of the most mediatic detractors for crypto, and Mr. Sun thinks he can present him with a fresh view on the subject so that maybe he can change his mind. Justin Sun said on Medium,
“I’m a long-term believer (and certainly a big fan) of Buffett and his long-term value investing strategy.”
Tron’s golden boy will meet the Oracle of Omaha in San Francisco to break some bread. eToro is a trading and exchange platform for all kinds of markets. The platform is extensive, and it includes a fully-fledged cryptocurrency exchange called eToroX.
Since last April, Mr. Assia is supporting GoodDollar, an organization that aims at “establishing an economic framework designed to reduce global wealth inequality via UBI-based models.”
The conversation between these four financial experts from different worlds will be fascinating without a doubt. And as Mr. Sun announces other invitations, the chances are that the meeting will only become even more exciting.
While Mr. Buffet is no crypto fan, he’s also gone on the record expressing interest of his own on meeting Mr. Sun.
The Tron founder has a track record as a successful businessman outside the blockchain world, and he’s known to be very persuasive and charismatic, so if anybody can change Mr. Buffet’s mind on crypto, then Justin Sun could very well be the man to do it.
