Everyone knows that Tron’s founder and CEO, Justin Sun is one of the most enthusiastic people in the crypto space, especially when it comes to supporting his projects.
Not too long ago, he made everyone excited by announcing that he has an announcement coming up that will be extremely beneficial for the whole crypto space.
A lot of haters and naysayers slammed Sun for “announcing an announcement” once more but eventually, it all turned out pretty impressive.
Sun won an eBay charity auction
It’s been revealed that Sun has won an eBay charity auction to have lunch with Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett.
Cointelegraph reported that Sun bid a record-breaking $4,567,888 to win the charity auction, which has been held by Warren Buffett for 20 years now.
According to Bloomberg, the winner would be able to bring seven friends along for lunch at a steakhouse in NYC.
Sun released a statement to highlight the importance of contributing to a charity foundation like this:
“BitTorrent and TRON’s US headquarters are in San Francisco, and bidding on this charity auction was a key priority for our team. I’m proud to have my bid donated to GLIDE, a foundation that provides critical support for our local homeless community.”
Sun’s tweet triggered controversial opinions
Here’s Sun’s tweet which people have been waiting with tons of excitement:
I officially announce I’ve won the record-setting 20th-anniversary charity lunch hosted by @WarrenBuffett. I’ll also invite #blockchain industry leaders to meet with a titan of investment. I hope this benefits everyone. #TRON #TRX #BTT #BitTorrent pic.twitter.com/EMZ4TMhgpR

Anthony Pompliano said: “Justin DM me. You know you need to bring me along to provide the real life.”
Sun responded: “Sure! Also, to commemorate this, I’m giving away BTC and ETH today. To get it, solve the puzzle: airdrop-now. info Hint: Remove extra space and type this site address in your browser.”
As we already said, there were also haters in the comment who made fun of Justin’s achievement.

But one essential thing that’s definitely worth noting is that Binance‘s Changpeng Zhao congratulated him and said that this is a great move to support crypto mass adoption.
