They discussed a number of topics, including whether Tesla stock is a good investment, as the group tried to convince the Berkshire Hathaway chairman of the currency of the next generation.

Crypto Advocates Meet Warren Buffett
Tron founder and Bittorrent CEO Justin Sun finally had lunch with Warren Buffett, even though it turned out to be a dinner instead. He bid $4.57 million at a charity auction in June last year to have lunch with Buffett the following month. Despite winning the auction, Sun postponed the meal, citing health issues. On Thursday, he tweeted:
Amazing dinner with Warren Buffett finally. Thanks for your support & advice on how to take Tron to the next level. Loved our talk on Bitcoin, Tesla & Tron.
