This meet-up would bridge the gap between the traditional financial sectors with a decentralized blockchain-powered structure. Although the complete guest list has not been publicized, it’s quite evident that other invitations are expected to follow ahead of the event.
Sun intends to pave a way for the discussion by pointing out the involvement of some multinational corporation’s engagements with blockchain and cryptocurrencies such including Facebook, JPMorgan, and IBM, along with a major focus on the success of his projects – BitTorrent and Tron. Sun stated:
“I’ll talk to Buffett and other attendees about how we’re integrating blockchain into BitTorrent, with its 100 million monthly active users and what we’re doing to expand and nurture the TRON blockchain.”
