Justin Sun invites Charlie Lee to join him
The first pal that Sun had in mind is Litecoin’s creator Charlie Lee and he invited the man to the lunch on Twitter.
Lee accepted the invitation, and people are waiting to see who Sun has in mind next, and the community is offering suggestions.
Lee believes that Bitcoin and cryptos will “revolutionize money” and that their real power lies in their resistance to censorship.
He said: “the innovation of Bitcoin is that it’s a decentralized currency and no one has control. And I think that’s the key. They managed, or Satoshi managed, to achieve this goal where previously no one else has been able to.”
Thanks Justin! I'm excited about this opportunity to meet a legend.
