The first time Justin Sun had planned a meeting with Warren Buffett for the first time, he failed. During the second attempt of the meeting, he also invited, among others, Donald Trump.
In July, the cryptocurrency industry widely commented on the lunch that Justin Sun and Warren Buffett, as well as other invited guests, were supposed to be attending. The meeting with a known investor was a prize that the TRON's CEO won on eBay on a charity auction. This was considered a good opportunity to have a broad discussion about cryptocurrencies, especially because of the fact, that Buffett is known for his critical approach to Bitcoin.
The meeting did not take place on the original date (July 25), though, due to Sun's health problems. Clearly, both of the main lunch guests have an extremely busy calendar, but the 29-year-old TRON CEO is already working on a new meeting date. Cliff Edwards, the head of the TRON press office, confirmed this:
"It took about two months for us to get all nine people to come to San Francisco and sit in one room for five hours with Warren Buffett. We are in the process of corralling all of those nine people again to get it back on track."
Invitating the president
The situation has not changed since July, as Justin Sun is still waiting for an unambiguous declaration by Donald Trump regarding the invitation. Sun sent the invitation after the already famous Twitter statement in which the US president said that "he is not a Bitcoin fan" and strongly stated that "there is only one real currency in the US", meaning the dollar.
Even though Trump still has not accepted or rejected the invitation, people believe that if a president will appear at this type of meeting, the industry would take it at face value. Changpeng Zhao, the head of Binance, on the other hand, noted in July that Trump's post does not mean anything groundbreaking. It cannot be denied, however, that the entire cryptocurrency ecosystem is gaining popularity if the President of the United States speaks about it.
