Tron eccentric CEO Justin Sun has revealed details of his long-awaited dinner with billionaire investor Warren Buffet.
The dinner took place yesterday as part of the 20th-anniversary charity launch hosted by Buffet.
If you recall NewsLogical had reported last June that Sun won a chance to have dinner with Buffet after paying $4.6 million to seal the auction bid on eBay.
It was anticipated that Sun would use the opportunity to promote Tron and cryptocurrencies to the famous investor who is a notable critic of Bitcoin. From the excerpts of the dinner released so far on Twitter, this appears CEO Sun did as expected.
According to Sun, Buffet was impressed with the speed of Tron after he transferred the equivalent of the $4.6 million (45,6788) to his TRX wallet.
Sun also gifted 1,930,830 TRX which was equivalent to Buffet’s birthday date. He also revealed the public details of Buffet’s wallet address for users to confirm the transactions.
Further, Justin Sun said Buffet’s Samsung Fold mobile phone is embedded with 00 $BTT,100 $WIN & $USDT-TRC20.

Buffet Firm Believer in Blockchain Potentials
Sun further reiterated that he discussed the potentials of blockchain with Buffet.
Buffet believes that there is a bright future for blockchain technology with a number of his companies exploring such options. However, he is on the outside and curious to see how it develops in the next decade.
Buffet is still not convinced about Bitcoin becoming the next-gen currency as he feels that the leading Digi currency has a lot of work to do to achieve its main goal.
Sun also asked the famous investor about his thoughts on Telsa as an investment. Telsa is one of the few Digi assets that outperformed Bitcoin in January.
However, Buffet was of the opinion that Telsa was not a good investment due to the level of competition in the automobile industry.
Sun’s Dinner with Buffet a Major Milestone Within the Crypto World
The dinner with Warren Buffet by Justin Sun was a huge one for the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
It shows that major players in the mainstream financial sector have begun to notice the potentials of cryptocurrencies and blockchain applications.
It will be interesting to see if this leads to a major development between Tron and Buffet companies in the coming months.
