Justin Sun has graduated.
Amidst the Libra-hangover that the entire industry is still dealing with, an important event has slipped away from the limelight. The much-talked about lunch between the digital asset industry’s master marketeer, Tron’s Justin Sun, and Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett is on the horizon, and the guest list has another name.
Scheduled for 25 July at San Francisco’s Michelin star restaurant, Quince, the lunch that the cryptocurrency industry hopes will turn Buffett into a Bitcoin believer will now include Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire. Sun requested the presence of his “good friend” for the lunch, which also features Charlie Lee, the creator of Litecoin.
The Tron CEO tweeted,

Allaire, in response, confirmed his acceptance of the invitation, unlike other crypto-pioneers like Binance’s Changpeng Zhao. The Circle CEO hopes that this will result in Buffett switching camps, or at the least, acknowledging the importance of the digital assets industry,
“Crypto is now a major global policy issue and there is a great deal for Mr Buffet to understand and for us to learn from him as well.”
The lunch may either prove futile, with Buffett continuing his tirade against Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies or, it may convince the investing mogul that there is some truth in decentralised currency. Regardless, it does say a lot about Justin Sun’s motivation.
Sun picked the likes of Lee and Allaire, nuanced and calm representatives of the space who can present a compelling argument before Buffett.
