Sun was barraged with kudos on his selection. Many agree that the affable Lee is an excellent choice of crypto ambassador on this epic lunch.

Twitter user “Tommy Mustache” reacted by posting a hilarious meme showing Buffett thinking to himself: “Bitcoin is only risky to those who don’t understand it.”

It’s a joking reference to the notorious bitcoin hater’s wholesale dismissal of crypto as “rat poison squared” and worthless gambling.
