孙宇晨与巴菲特共进晚餐,并赠送比特币给巴菲特

2020-2-7 12:41

 

贾斯汀·孙(Justin Sun)与沃伦·巴菲特(Warren Buffett)共进午餐花了6个多月的时间。Sun用神秘的礼物弥补了这一点。


思创首席执行官孙正义终于与亿万富翁投资家巴菲特共进晚餐。去年5月,贾斯汀·孙为这一荣誉支付了457万美元,虽然原定于2019年7月的这顿饭因为孙说他患有肾结石而推迟了。


据称,在这顿迟来的晚餐上,孙将自己的第一个比特币送给了这位奥马哈先知。孙表示,他已经买了这个礼物,并把它放在了三星Galaxy折叠设备上。他还在那里放置了1,930,830个TRX,在撰写本文时价值约40,000美元。

 


希望孙能花点时间向巴菲特解释密码如何在加密钱包上使用。


晚宴上,这位亿万富翁投资者和孙与四位嘉宾共进晚餐:莱特币(Litecoin)的创始人查理·李(Charlie Lee);eToro首席执行官Yoni Assia;Huobi首席财务官Chris Lee;以及Binance慈善基金会主席海伦·海。晚宴于1月23日下午6点在巴菲特家乡内布拉斯加州奥马哈的乡村俱乐部Happy Hollow Club举行。


孙在一份声明中说:“这真的是一种荣誉,我很感激巴菲特的晚宴、智慧和远见。”他还表示,他将“接受巴菲特的建议和指导,让创电成为一个更好的生态系统,与区块链及其他领域的所有合作伙伴开展业务”。


巴菲特之前曾说过,比特币是一种“错觉”,“没有独特的价值”,是“老鼠药的平方”。孙的礼物会软化他的立场吗?谁知道呢。


这顿饭是20年传统的一部分:每年巴菲特都会为慈善机构拍卖自己餐桌上的一个座位。孙的捐款是有记录以来最大的一笔,比之前的记录——2012年首次创下、2016年由匿名竞标者创下的3456689美元——高出100多万美元。所有收益将捐给格莱德基金会,这是一家帮助旧金山无家可归者的慈善机构。


这并不是孙上个月吃的唯一一顿大餐。在与巴菲特共进晚餐的前几天,苹果联合创始人史蒂夫·沃兹尼亚克(Steve Wozniak)在twitter上说,他与孙在加州库比蒂诺的Mandarin Gourmet餐厅共进午餐。谈到与沃兹的午餐,孙在推特上说,这是一种“荣誉”,他“期待着我们的合作”。

 


虽然人们很快就开始议论特隆与苹果公司(Tron Apple)可能的合作,但Twitter很快指出,“沃兹”自1985年以来就没有在这家公司工作过。

 

Justin Sun’s meal with Warren Buffett has taken over six months to cook. Sun made up for it with crypto gifts.

 

Justin Sun, CEO of TRON, has finally had dinner with billionaire investor Warren Buffett. Justin Sun paid $4.57 million in May last year for the honor, though the meal, originally scheduled for July 2019, was postponed because Sun said he had kidney stones.

 

At the overdue meal, Sun allegedly gifted the Oracle of Omaha with his first Bitcoin. Sun said he had bought and placed the gift on a Samsung Galaxy Fold device. He also placed 1,930,830 TRX on there, worth roughly $40,000 at the time of writing. 

 

Let’s hope Sun took the time to explain to Buffett how passwords work on crypto wallets.

 

Back at the dinner, the billionaire investor and Sun dined together with four guests: Litecoin creator Charlie Lee; eToro CEO Yoni Assia; CFO of Huobi, Chris Lee; and head of the Binance Charity Foundation, Helen Hai. The meal took place at 6 pm, January 23 at the Happy Hollow Club, a country club in Buffett’s hometown of Omaha, Nebraska.

 

“[It] was really an honor and I’m grateful for Mr. Buffett’s dinner, wisdom, and vision,” said Sun in a statement. He also said he would “take Mr. Buffett’s advice and guidance to make TRON a better ecosystem, business with all the partners in the blockchain space and beyond.”

 

Buffett, who’s not commented on the meal, has previously said that Bitcoin is a “delusion,” “with no unique value” and is “rat poison squared.” Will Sun’s gift soften his stance? Who knows.

 

The meal is part of a two-decade tradition: Every year Buffett auctions off a seat at his dinner table for charity. Sun’s donation is the largest on record, coming in at over a million dollars more than the previous record of $3,456,689, first made in 2012 and later equaled in 2016, from anonymous bidders. All proceeds go to the Glide Foundation, a charity that helps out the homeless in San Francisco.

 

This isn’t Sun’s only high profile meal last month. A few days before the dinner with Buffett, Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, tweeted that he had had lunch with Sun at the Mandarin Gourmet restaurant in Cupertino, California. Of the lunch with Woz, Sun tweeted that it was “an honor,” and that he’s “looking forward to our partnership.”

 

While tongues immediately started wagging for a potential Tron Apple partnership, Twitter was quick to point out ‘Woz’ hadn’t worked at the company since 1985.
