Justin Sun, Tron's CEO, failed to attend his lunch with financial titlist Warren Buffett on Thursday over kidney stones. However, that did not stop him from mixing briefly with influencers at a Tron-organized party in San Francisco on Thursday night.
The appearance occurred just one day after Sun over-marketed an apology to the public, the media, and regulators for the buffet lunch. He did not specify which regulators he referred to, but the letter has so far only been published in simplified Chinese.
"In the future, I am going to rest a bit because of my illness," he wrote in Weibo Post. "All efforts should return from marketing and hyping to blockchain tech development." , I have a lot of cool stuff for the channel coming soon. pic.twitter.com/toejAdeOdC
Despite the shift in the main event – $ 4.6 million for the Sun Dollar submitted has donated to charity – After-party plans for Sun's Confab with Buffett proceeded as planned.
Ten YouTube creators were flown to San Francisco for Tron Influencer Day to celebrate Tron's one-year anniversary of the acquisition of BitTorrent. Established in 2004.
Meanwhile, the founder of BitTorrent and current Chia CEO, Bram Cohen, most dissatisfied. "Does anyone know if Justin Sun does not make any money?" Cohen tweeted on Thursday afternoon. "He does not let the last payment for BitTorrent disappear from the escrow account." (Sun dismissed the allegation with decryption and said, "It has nothing to do with me.")
Sun's appearance turned out to be an odd bookend to a week-long saga about the polarizing entrepreneur. On Tuesday, reports surfaced that he was under border control and could not leave China. These reports were later refuted as Sun sent a video of himself from a San Francisco skyscraper.
A new date for the postponed lunch has not yet been announced.
