Over the past day, the whole crypto community has been discussing Tron (TRX), namely its chief executive Justin Sun.
On Tuesday morning, Sun wrote in a message published to Twitter that he would be unable to attend a lunch with Warren Buffett due to kidney stones, which he claimed left him bed-ridden.
While the cryptocurrency entrepreneur seemed entirely serious, some questioned the veracity of his ailment, leaving many on forums online to speculate about what actually is going on.

This hubbub eventually led to reports that certain Chinese authorities were placing Sun under investigation, and thus barred him from leaving Tron’s offices in Shanghai to fly to the Buffett rendezvous in San Francisco.
According to prominent Chinese cryptocurrency source CnLedger, however, Sun has since come out to vehemently deny the claims made by the Chinese media outlets.
Tron CEO is “Safe”
Per a roughly translated post published to Weibo just 30 minutes ago, Sun is “all safe”. The Tron founder purportedly added that the report from Caixin — which claimed that a special council on internet security accused him of money laundering, the propagation of sexual images, among other activities — is completely untrue.
Update: Justin Sun commented on Weibo saying he is "all safe", and Caixin's reports are "completely untrue". Sun promised to meet the outside world once his health condition recovers. However, there was no direct mention of the exit ban.

In the post, Sun also purportedly noted that he is still being affected by the kidney stones, and is still waiting to “meet the outside world.” This corroborates the idea that Sun will not be able to make it to the much-ballyhooed charity lunch with Warren Buffett.
Update: Sun has since posted an image of him in San Francisco on Twitter.
