Ever since Tron founder Justin Sun made his infamous $4.58 million winning bid to lunch with Warren Buffett, the event has been surrounded by hype.
Buffett had his mind firmly made up about cryptocurrencies the whole time.
When interviewer Becky Quick points out that Sun gave Buffett some bitcoin, he visibly starts to squirm.
Taking to Twitter in response, Sun provides the blockchain explorer records to prove that Buffett is the proud owner of both BTC and TRX:. "The cryptos $BTC/ $TRX Mr. Buffett owns remain intact w/ blockchain proof which is the beauty of blockchain."
Of course, whether Mr. Buffett understands how to access them or not appears to be a moot point since he maintains cryptocurrencies have zero value.
As Sun gifted the cryptocurrencies on Buffett's Samsung Galaxy smartphone, many of his followers point out that the billionaire most likely got rid of the phone.
Buffett later confirmed that he did receive the cryptocurrency from Justin Sun.
Did anyone really think that the rising Sun was going to change the 89-year-old Buffett's mind?
The lunch did donate a massive $4.58 million to San Fransico charity Glide and, as Buffett stated, "That will buy a lot of meals and provide a lot of beds."
For his part, Sun maintains that he "Learned so much" from talking to Buffett and enjoyed discussing "Differences of opinions in investments & life experiences." Sometimes, one simply has to accept that it's ok to agree to disagree.
