This summer Justin Sun made a lot of hype around winning a charity lunch with the world-renowned investor Warren Buffett.
Among the guests, whose names were confirmed back then, was Litecoin’s founder Charlie Lee and the CEO of eToro Yoni Assia.
The Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao rejected Sun’s offer saying that San Francisco is too far to travel for him. The names of the other guests have not been revealed to the public yet.
In a letter to U.Today, Tron Foundation representative Cliff Edwards confirmed that the much-anticipated lunch with Warren Buffett is in the process of being rescheduled with the same guest list. However, he denied the part of the Business Insider report, which featured a rumor about Donald Trump being invited to the lunch.
Crucial lunch delayed over health issues
Earlier, U.Today reported that the head of Tron, Justin Sun, had to delay the lunch with one of the wealthiest men in the world due to the kidney stones Sun was suddenly diagnosed with.Back then, there were also reports that Justin Sun was banned from leaving China over an investigation of the local authorities regarding illegal businesses Sun was allegedly involved in.
Justin Sun seeks to meet Buffett after all
In a recent interview, Tron’s director on global communications, Cliff Edwards, mentioned that Justin Sun is eager to get the lunch eaten with Buffett after all and now he, Buffett and the other guests are negotiating a different time and day that would suit everyone.
U.Today has contacted Cliff Edwards for comments.
