Tron CEO Justin Sun Skyrockets on Google Trends After Getting Major Media Exposure

Tron CEO Justin Sun appeared in the limelight because of winning a charity dinner with Warren Buffett, the third richest person in the world.

As the graph shows, this is the first major breakthrough into the mainstream for Sun, a Twitter regular with more than 1.2 mln followers.

As reported by U.Today, the Tron CEO had to pay a staggering $4.5 mln in order to make this happen (the sum ever raised for the San Francisco-based Glide Foundation).
