>Chinese wins Buffett lunch

中国90后将与'股神'共餐

A Chinese cryptocurrency entrepreneur has won the auction for this year's Buffett lunch with a $4,567,888 bid, a record high since the lunch was launched 20 years ago.

中国一位加密货币企业家以456.7888万美元拍下今年的"巴菲特慈善午餐",这是该活动举办20年来的最高价格。

Justin Sun Yuchen, 28, founder of Tron and CEO of BitTorrent, announced his win on his Sina Weibo accounts on Monday.

3日,28岁的波场Tron创始人兼BitTorrent首席执行官孙宇晨在其新浪微博账号上宣布了自己竞拍成功的消息。

"I'm delighted with the fact Justin has won the lunch and am looking forward to meeting him and his friends," Buffett said in a statement.

亿万富翁投资人沃伦·巴菲特在声明中表示:"很高兴孙宇晨赢得午餐,期待与他和他的朋友见面。"

However, billionaire investor Warren Buffett isn't a fan of investing in cryptocurrencies, calling them "nonproductive assets", an AP report said. He has gone on record deriding Bitcoin, the world's first and largest digital currency, as everything from "rat poison squared" to a "delusion" that "attracts charlatans".

不过据美联社报道,巴菲特对投资加密货币并不"感冒",称其为"非增值型资产"。他曾公开嘲讽全球首个以及最大数字货币比特币"比老鼠药还老鼠药"、"是一种吸引江湖骗子的错觉"。

"It is very common in investment circles that people change their minds," Sun said in a telephone interview with Bloomberg.

对此,孙宇晨在接受彭博社电话采访时表示,投资界人士改变看法非常普遍。

Sun and up to seven people will dine with Buffett in New York City.

他将携最多7人与巴菲特在纽约市一同进餐。
