Justin Sun, the founder of blockchain platform TRON and CEO of peer-to-peer file sharing protocol BitTorrent, finally met Warren Buffett for the much-hyped and delayed dinner on January 23.

According to a press release, Sun and a number of his special guests met Buffett at Happy Hollow Club, a private, not-for-profit country club, in Omaha, Nebraska. Guests included founder of Litecoin Foundation Charlie Lee, CFO of Huobi Chris Lee, head of Binance Charity Foundation Helen Hai, and CEO of eToro Yoni Assia.

Last May, Sun had won the bid for Warren Buffett’s annual charity auction luncheon, after he placed a record-high bid of $4.57 million. He was allowed to bring up to seven of his friends to the private lunch with Buffet.

After postponement, the previously planned lunch in San Francisco was rescheduled on Buffett’s terms for a dinner in Omaha. Sun said that they discussed the future of cryptocurrency, blockchain, and other topics. He shared few details of the dinner in a series of tweets:

Sun also gifted bitcoin and TRX to the finance titan:

“It was really an honor and I’m grateful for Mr. Buffett’s dinner, wisdom, and vision,” said Sun. “I'll always remember his kindness and support, and will take Mr. Buffett’s advice and guidance to make TRON a better ecosystem, business with all the partners in the blockchain space and beyond.”

Back in July, Sun had issued an apology for “over-marketing” his lunch with Buffett. “…because of my immature words, behavior, youth, and vigor, I spoke without thinking twice. It became a failing of over-marketing that out of my control…I ignored the responsibility of being a public figure. This was not my original intent,” he said at the time.
