Justin Sun, Tron founder and CEO, tweeted on Thursday that this year’s eBay Power of Lunch with Warren Buffett will be held on July 25. The event will be held at Quince Restaurant, San Francisco.

The venue, Sun stated, was selected by his team. He said,
My team looked at many restaurants in the city, on the hunt for an intimate and amazing setting for me and up to seven guests to have both a great conversation and great food with Buffett. After narrowing the choices to three, I ultimately chose Quince because its food represents the traditional and the upstart — much like the participants in the lunch itself.
Justin Sun has been working on the event for a long time. Earlier, he donated a whopping $4.57 million via an auction for the Charity Lunch with Warren Buffett organized by Glide Foundation. Many are seeing Sun’s moves as an effort to bridge the distance between crypto space and Buffett, who happens to be the greatest investor of modern times.
However, the scope of Buffett turning into a crypto investor seems to be very thin, as he has always been a strong critic of Bitcoin and other altcoins. He has given a few names to Bitcoin which are not pleasing, to say the least, like ‘rat poison squared‘, and even compared it to the button of his suit. Nonetheless, if Sun is able to somehow pull Buffett into changing his stand and start investing in cryptocurrencies, nothing could be greater.
