Tron CEO Justin Sun will link up with Litecoin creator Charlie Lee on the high-power $4.6 million lunch with Billionaire Bitcoin skeptic Warren Buffet slated for July 25.
Sun revealed on Twitter that he was delighted to have Lee join him for the lunch being one of the first friends he has invited for the power lunch. The Tron CEO said that he would announce other friends that will be attending the lunch session soon.
The decision to bring on Charlie Lee was met with comments of approval with many saying that Lee was an excellent choice in the mission to soften Buffet’s position on crypto. Sun has the calendar marked at July 25 as the date when the high power lunch will take place, with many crypto enthusiasts eagerly waiting what will come out of it.
The $4.6 million lunch is the highest ever bid paid for the annual charity lunch and it will be taking place in San Francisco this year. It will target a charity that Buffet’s late wife had supported before her passing. The highly anticipated event has no doubt raised Sun’s profile, especially with Billionaire investor Warren Buffet being in the mix.
As many commented, Litecoin creator Charlie Lee was a great addition to the power lunch crypto delegation which nicely coincides with Litecoin soaring up the charts. The past 6 months have seen the cryptocurrency soar 357% against the dollar, outperforming every one of the top 10 cryptocurrencies which includes EOS, Ethereum, and Bitcoin.
Litecoin’s spike is likely due to its block reward halving- which is an event that reduces the rate of production of the assets by miners- that will take place in two months’ time. Litecoin has also impressively been the only crypto-currency that has matched the performance of Bitcoin since the unforgettable bull run of 2017.
As the much awaited Lunch draws nearer, Justin Sun thinks it’s unrealistic that the lunch will totally change Buffet’s mind about cryptos, but he intends to try his best anyway. While many crypto enthusiasts have held the concern that Sun will only drum up support for Tron, the Tron CEO has stated clearly that he won’t just be there for Tron but for the entire crypto Ecosystem.
“It’s not only about Tron,” Sun says. “It’s about crypto and blockchain — the whole industry. Our mission is to decentralize the internet.”
The high power lunch slated for July 25 is certainly going to be quite the event, and the $4.6 Million amount is being lauded by many. Crypto enthusiasts can’t wait to see what will come out of it and whether Warren Buffet will be sold on Crypto. Buffet boarding the crypto train will probably raise crypto’s profile by a 100 notches, because of his influence and profile.
