Justin Sun Challenges Pending $4.6 M Buffet Lunch; Had Another Apple Co-Founder instead

Justin Sun, the founder of TRON, a Blockchain-based decentralized platform, may have forfeited his long-awaited $4.6 million lunch with the American billionaire and businessman, Warren Buffett, for another lunch with one of Apple’s co-founders.

Sun shared his expected business lunch on Twitter today, Tuesday, 21 January 2020, with Steve Wozniak, an American technology entrepreneur and co-founder of Apple Inc., one of the world’s largest technology companies.

According to the founder of TRON, the meeting was supposed to give birth to ideas that could help the blockchain company grow, as Sun added that he was “thank you to Woz (Wozniak) and his wise advice to make TRON as successful as Apple one day.”

In August 2018, Apple became the first company in the world to make a market capitalization of $1 trillion. However, the tech giant lost more than $450 billion in the last quarter of 2018. Apple is reported to be back on track, having recorded $967.87 billion as of September last year.

Although Sun’s lunch with the founder of the billion-dollar company was meant for TRON’s success, instead of expressing satisfaction, many crypto enthusiasts came to the comment section to express their concern about why he had dropped his long-anticipated lunch with Buffett.

That delayed lunch with Warren Buffett

In a group of seven, Justin Sun was supposed to have a $4.57 million lunch last year with Buffett, Bitcoin and crypto critics, who once referred to Bitcoin as “rat poison” in one of his media appearances.

The meeting generated as much mainstream media coverage for cryptocurrencies as many people thought lunch could possibly change the billionaire’s stance on cryptocurrency and get him to invest in it as well.

However, as Sun canceled the lunch saying that he had kidney stones, with other reports claiming that the Chinese authorities were holding him over TRON’s connection to a fraudulent project, the expected lunch with Buffet may be a pipedream.

On September 2019, Sun hinted at the possibility of a Buffett lunch in 2020. However, it could mostly be about the upcoming US presidential election.
