With 2019 safely in the history books and no sights of the Warren Buffet lunch, the Tron community is definitely hoping to see more partnerships and zero gimmicks in 2020. A few days ago, Tron CEO hinted at a new partnership with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak after the pair had lunch together.
Now, in a tweet on Saturday (January 25), the CEO has revealed that he had a meeting with Litecoin Founder Charlie Lee.
Is There A Partnership Coming Up?
As per Justin’s post, he met with Charlie Lee where they discussed bitcoin (BTC) and their respective blockchains. Sun then threw in a little teaser that he and Lee discussed “some secrets.”
Per usual, this tweet raised a lot of speculations about a possible Litecoin and Tron collaboration.
Suffice it to say, we’ve got to hand it to Justin for making big moves. In late December last year, blockchain-based streaming platform DLive began its migration to the Tron blockchain where it would be merging with Tron’s BLive. More recently, adult video giant Pornhub announced that its models can now receive payments in Tether (USDT) via the TRONLink wallet.
So, the big question is, did Sun manage to score a partnership with Litecoin’s Lee as well?
Notably, no further details about the conversation with Charlie Lee have been provided yet and this could have been nothing more than a simple meeting. Also, given Sun’s record with announcements gone terribly wrong, the “secrets” that he discussed with the Litecoin founder are anyone’s guess.
Justin Sun’s Dodgy History With Announcements
In the past, Justin Sun has graced headlines in the mainstream press all around the world. He has, however, always sparked mixed feelings within the crypto-verse. Some in the crypto industry have applauded the young entrepreneur for drawing attention to Tron (and the crypto space in general) with his eccentric marketing skills, while others have simply called his tactics misleading. This is especially because of Sun’s history of making an announcement about a “big announcement”.
Perhaps the most notable pratfall was the lunch with legendary investor Warren Buffet. After paying top dollar to have lunch with the billionaire and a few invited guests, Sun unexpectedly canceled the meeting apparently due to kidney stones. He later apologized to the crypto community for canceling the luncheon while admitting that he had excessively marketed the lunch.
TRX has not been moved by the recent Justin Sun announcement. The asset recently moved up to No. 10 spot on CoinMarketCap’s rankings but it has since slipped to position 12. Tron (TRX) is currently valued at $0.016234 with 1.53% losses on the 24-hour adjusted timeframe.
