Well, it seems that this is the big announcement that Justin Sun has been preparing.
You may recall that we revealed that Justin Sun triggered massive excitement in the crypto community when he revealed a few days ago that there’s a big win for the blockchain community that will be announced on June 3.
Justin Sun won an eBay charity auction
Now, it was revealed via a press release shared with Cointelegraph on June 3 that Sun won an eBay charity auction to have lunch with renowned investor Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett.
Cointelegraph reports that Sun bid a record-breaking $4,567,888 to win the charity auction, which has been held by Warren Buffett for the past 20 years.
According to Bloomberg, the winner who was not named before would be able to bring seven friends along for the lunch at a steakhouse in NYC.
All the proceeds from this action will be benefitting the San-Francisco non-profit GLIDE Foundation which is focused on fighting injustice and inequality on behalf of communities in needs and economically deprived.
Sun released a statement to highlight the importance of contributing to a 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.”
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
