Justin Sun, CEO of TRON and BitTorrent, is reportedly working to reschedule a charity lunch he had won with Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett over two months ago.
TRON Foundation announces postponement of Warren Buffett lunch, press conferences after founder Justin Sun falls ill with kidney stones.
Now, the TRON Foundation, Buffett's team and the Glide Foundation, the homeless charity that received the proceeds from the lunch auction, are working together to figure out a date to reschedule the charity meal.
Finding a date that works for Justin Sun, Warren Buffett and the invitees has proven to be a challenge, said Cliff Edwards, TRON's communications director, in an interview with Blocktv.
According to a report by Caixin, Justin Sun had was under border control the day he postponed the lunch with Warren Buffett.
Along the same lines, the 21st Century Business Herald claimed that Sun was being accused of facilitating pornography-related transactions through his social media company, Peiwo, alongside a host of other accusations related to the TRON Network.
Even though the accusations were never confirmed, later on, Sun appeared in San Francisco and published a statement on Weibo apologizing to the TRON community and Chinese authorities for "Vulgar hype and marketing behavior."
TRON and BitTorrent have plummeted nearly 53 percent since Sun canceled the lunch with Buffett.
Although TRON and BitTorrent are sitting on bearish postures and appear to have more legs to go down, it is clear that their CEO Justin Sun has a tremendous impact on them.
The new wave of marketing promotion that will come once the lunch with Warren Buffett is finally rescheduled, could allow these cryptocurrencies to rise again.
