    Sun finally rises over Buffett dinner

    After months of delay, Tron founder Justin Sun finally had his much-anticipated dinner with billionaire investor Warren Buffett. The meeting was part of a charity auction which Sun won with a whopping bid of $4.5 million. However, questions were raised as to whether the dinner would ever take place with months of will-they-won't-they back and forths. Sun was laid low with kidney stones back in July 2019 meaning he had to postpone. Yet, despite the doubts, Sun posted on Twitter yesterday containing a photo of him with Buffett and a detailed thread of the conversation that took place. Magical Crypto Friend's podcaster and Litecoin founder Charlie Lee also appears to have been invited to the dinner.
