The highly-anticipated Crypto Power Lunch between billionaire bitcoin skeptic Warren Buffett and Tron CEO Justin Sun has expanded to include Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire.

Sun invited Allaire to his July 25 lunch on Twitter, and Allaire cheerfully accepted.

“Hi Justin, I would be honored to join you and Warren Buffett next week to discuss crypto!! Count me in. Crypto is now a major global policy issue.”

Hi Justin, I would be honored to join you and @WarrenBuffett next week to discuss crypto!! Count me in. Crypto is now a major global policy issue and there is a great deal for Mr Buffet to understand and for us to learn from him as well. https://t.co/PGY8bXQBcZ

Litecoin Creator Charlie Lee Is Also Coming

As CCN reported, Litecoin creator Charlie Lee was the first guest to accept Sun’s invitation to the $4.6 million lunch with Buffett.

The crypto convocation will take place at Quince, a three-Michelin-star restaurant in San Francisco’s historic Jackson Square neighborhood.

Sun chose San Francisco to spotlight the Glide Foundation, a local charity that Buffett’s late wife had supported. Glide provides meals for the homeless and helps domestic violence victims.

The $4.6 million that Sun bid was the highest-ever paid for the annual charity lunch with Buffett.

Justin Sun Solicits Questions on Twitter

On Twitter, Sun asked his followers what he should ask Warren Buffett, who is a notorious bitcoin hater. Not surprisingly, Sun received a number of thoughtful responses.

One person suggested that Sun ask Buffett what he thinks about the “powerful network effects of distributed token economies” and if he ever plans to invest in blockchain businesses.

Let’s also ask him if he would like to invest in an innovative business that utilises #blockchain , smart contracts and digital tokens to create frictionless value exchange within the #gaming & #esports industry. Social competitive gaming is the future
