Anger and disbelief as Justin Sun TRON blows $4,567,888 to pay for lunch
Justin Sun had been building up for a massive announcement in his usual hype-master style. Biggest thing for crypto… amazing for TRX and BTT… you know the drill by now. A cheeky pre-announcement or twelve over the past days. Interspersed with some Liverpool FC references in case anyone had forgotten his last big announcement was actually just a spam email from Liverpool FC marketing department.
“Something huge and amazing going about
#TRON and #BitTorrent. I will share with you after June 1. I think I have 70% to win and nail it. Fingers crossed! $TRX $BTT”
So it started… some people believed.
“I did it! Big win for the
#blockchain community! Big reveal June 3. Stayed tuned! #TRX $TRX $BTT #BTT”
It got better… some people got excited.
And then………… we got the big reveal…….
“I officially announce I’ve won the record-setting 20th-anniversary charity lunch hosted by
@WarrenBuffett. I’ll also invite #blockchain industry leaders to meet with a titan of investment. I hope this benefits everyone. #TRON #TRX #BTT #BitTorrent”
The one good thing is that the close to 4.6 million dollars the Tron community paid for this lunch is going to charity. So fair play on that score at least.
The reception this news got of course makes for some 18+ R rated reading, here are some of the best reactions:
- Shady as f*ck
- Paid $1M for Kobe Bryant to appear on stage for an hour. Paid $4.5 million for an hour with Warren Buffett. TRON funds SAFU.
- How can you NOT judge… This is disgusting spending 4.5m of investors money so he can jolly with the big boys. If Tron was a serious project
@WarrenBuffett would have invited @justinsuntron for a FREE meeting. 100% scam CONFIRMED.
- Hahahhahaaaaa now wait for the
- Yeah because people haven’t heard the big announcement yet. Just wait until they all realise it’s a bunch of nonsense. I mean seriously, hyping WB on crypto is like inviting a vegan to a meat factory startup opportunity.
- BUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA !!
- Yeah thanks for the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! As a
$btt investor, I just lost 16% all of my money. Keep up the EXCELLENT work!
- are you kidding me?
- Does he know that you will be paying in shitcoins?
- Paid for with other people’s money?? Smells shady
- And….now the dump
- Nice Where is the news though?
- Wow. What a massive media stunt failure
- WTF!!!!! This is the big news!!??! I’m selling all my tron
- You can’t give out a Tesla, but you can have lunch for 4.5 million.
- you paid 4.5million for this? lol?
- No, the ones buying TRX on a hype, paid for it. the -10% dump since yesterday, was probably Justin!
- he could have sent that dude the tesla he owes him to start…….
- You “won” or you paid for a charity lunch date?
- Wait so he placed a bid for 5 mil for a lunch with a guy who doesn’t like cryptocurrency? LMFAOOOO
- Please tell me this isn’t the news…
- Is THIS the big announcement?!?!?!? LUNCH?!?!?!??!?
And the best of the lot comes with a gif:
