TRON CEO, Justin Sun, pays $4.5 million to dine with Warren Buffet as part of ‘Power Lunch’

Justin Sun, the CEO of TRON, is set to pay $4.5 million for the “right to dine” with Berkshire and Hathaway CEO and founder, Warren Buffett as part of Buffet’s 20th ‘power lunch’.

The lunch is part of the ‘Oracle of Omaha’s’ yearly auction for the glide foundation. The event was conveyed by Sun in a tweet which said that he placed a bid of $4.5 million to lunch with Buffet, who’s a vocal critic of cryptocurrency and is largely perceived as being a crypto-basher.

The lunch is set to take place at Smith & Wollensky’s in Manhattan, and the TRON CEO announced that he would invite seven crypto-industry leaders to join them.

Sun said that he expects to teach Buffett about blockchain technology and cryptocurrency as part of the dining experience.

According to the list of previous winning bids, Sun’s bid ranks the highest. The $4.5 million bid was part of a Glide charity organization’s auction to help the homeless, along with helping those battling drug addiction in San Fransisco.

The Tron founder wrote in a Medium post:

“I’m a long-term believer (and certainly a big fan) of Buffett and his long-term value investing strategy.”

Warren Buffett is the third-wealthiest man in the world today with a net worth of $89.9 billion. With such a repertoire, one would expect the billionaire to indulge in some of the finest foods in the world. In reality, however, Buffett neither lives nor eats like a king. At age 88, he is known to have a diet of Coca Cola and Utz for breakfast, along with his love for Dairy Queen Sundaes and McDonald‘s burgers.
