Justin Sun, the technology and cryptocurrency entrepreneur who recently announced that he is a diplomat for Grenada, said he’s going to space on a Blue Origin flight next year and will invite five people to join him. 

The 31-year-old also revealed himself as the anonymous bidder who paid $28 million in an auction for a seat to join Jeff Bezos in Blue Origin’s first crewed mission in July, but had to reschedule due to a timing conflict. The closely held commercial space company founded by Bezos said at the time that the unnamed bidder will instead fly on a future trip.
