Tron founder Justin San held a live broadcast with him from San Francisco to refute the information that he was forbidden to leave China due to a police investigation into his cryptocurrency project Tron.
He launched a video stream on his Twitter account, where he denied rumors that he could not leave China due to money laundering charges, gambling support and the spread of pornography.
In addition, San posted a photo with him and accompanying him Cliff Edwards, director of public relations for Tron and Bay Bridge in the background.
Earlier, local Chinese media outlets Caixin reported that the Office of the leading group of a special campaign against financial risks on the Internet called on China’s security authorities to launch an investigation into Justin San. According to the law of China, suspected Chinese are forbidden to leave the country for one month to one year. The report states that at the time of writing, the location of Justin San was unclear.
Also earlier, San suffered a long-discussed charity dinner with Berkshire Hathaway CEO and famous investor Warren Buffet. According to the July 22 Tron Foundation tweet, the parties agreed to postpone the meeting at a later date, as Sun reported problems with kidney stones.
The postponement came just a few days after San invited more famous crypto industry figures to lunch with Buffett, including the founder of eToro Yoni Assia, the head of the Binance charity foundation Helen Hai, and Jeremy Aller, the general director of cryptocurrency payments.
Recall that in early July, the offices of the Tron branch in Beijing were surrounded by police when there gathered a crowd of protesters against the Chinese Ponzi scheme, operating under the name similar to Tron.
