As we’re sure you’re aware, Justin Sun has a lunch date with Warren Buffett.
Somewhat unsurprisingly, Sun is milking the auction prize for all it’s worth, announcing on Twitter that he’s selected San Francisco’s Quince, a “three-Michelin starred restaurant in the historic Jackson Square,” for the 25th July, $4.5 million meal.
I'm pleased to announce that this years eBay #PowerOfOneLunch with @WarrenBuffett will be held July 25 at @quincesf, a three-Michelin starred restaurant in San Francisco's historic Jackson Square. #TRON #TRX https://t.co/XZCt3lY8oI

“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 (including Litecoin creator Charlie Lee) to have both a great conversation and great food with Buffett. I ultimately chose Quince because its food represents the traditional and the upstart — much like the participants in the lunch itself,” Sun says in a blog post.
Noting that some in the crypto community have asked what he hopes to accomplish during the lunch, he states: “I hope it takes a step, however large or small, to bridge the divide between the blockchain industry and traditional investors. I’m looking forward to discussing Buffett’s investment strategies, and I’m looking to hear what great things other guests are planning to move the industry forward.”
“For the Tron and BitTorrent community, I’ll talk to Buffett and other attendees about how we’re integrating blockchain into BitTorrent, with its 100 million monthly active users and what we’re doing to expand and nurture the Tron blockchain. Lastly, I’m looking forward to a great meal,” he adds.
A press conference, meanwhile, will “give an update on what we spoke about and end with a cool party to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Tron’s independence and my purchase of BitTorrent”.
