As it became known, Andreas Antonopoulos will not attend a charity dinner with Warren Buffett. An ardent supporter of Bitcoin, who is a master in explaining the global values of the coin, does not plan to join the founder of TRON, Justin Sun, as one of seven guests.
CEO Tron Justin Sun acquired the right to dine with Buffett and invite several guests with him during last week’s auction for $ 4.57 million. In a conversation with CNBC, San said that he plans to invite several prominent representatives of the cryptocurrency industry, including CEO Binance. Changpen Zhao, Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin and Litecoin creator Charlie Lee.
He named Binance CEO Changpen Zhao, co-founder of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin, Litecoin founder Charlie Lee, and other well-known experts as candidates.
The head of Binance immediately rejected the invitation, saying that it was "too far for him."
Vitalik Buterin and Lee have not yet responded to the invitation.
Many members of the cryptocurrency community offered Andreas Antonopoulos to join the dinner because he can explain the value of Bitcoin like no other. But he is not interested, judging by his messages on Twitter.
My twitter mentions have become unusable, flooded with thousands of messages of people “volunteering” me and others to go to a lunch with an investor, as PR shills for crypto. (no thanks)
If you had an important message for me, you might need to try again in a week.
Most users criticize Sun for another marketing gimmick, funded by the project’s investors. While the names of the guests remain unknown, one of the possible candidates is called co-founder of the company Morgan Creek Digital Anthony Pompiano, who himself had previously shown interest in meeting with Buffett.
