The anonymous bidder that paid $28 million at an auction for a seat in Bezos’ Blue Origin’s first crewed mission back in July has revealed himself to be none other than Tron’s very own Justin Sun.

The founder of Tron, Sun acted as CEO as well as created the blockchain, just recently stepped down from his position at the firm in lieu of other responsibilities. He announced on Twitter that he’ll be planning his trip with 5 other people being invited to join him on his adventure into space.

When he announced that he was the one behind the huge bidding for the Blue Origin’s seat at the auction, Sun revealed he missed the launch, but that this hasn’t deterred him from his goal, as he’s been a fan of space since he was a child. He stated that space belongs to everyone, and that’s why he’s using this as an opportunity to invite 5 additional members to join him. These may be members of TRON DAO community, long-term crypto holders, or even other fashion, tech, and entrepreneurship bigwigs.

“I won the auction 6 months ago but missed the launch. However, this did not stop my love for space,” his Tweet reads. “So I’m very excited to announce this news and turn this opportunity into a voyage with 5 other warriors to space with me because I believe that space belongs to everyone!”

“Going to space has been a dream of mine since my childhood, and it is also the future direction of humankind,” he admitted.

Sun will announce the lucky winners that get to join him in the coming months.

Blue Origin is a sub-orbital spaceflight services company is owned by Amazon’s creator Jeff Bezos, who, in July, made a short trip to space on a Blue Origin rocket.
