Lightning Network Torch Keeps Moving From Biggies To Biggies, Who’s Next?

Twitter game of  Lightning Network torch has been on ever since Hodlonaut passed on a small amount of BTC on the Lightning Network to show the power of the software solution. Since then, the torch has been passed on to many biggies like Jack Dorsey, founder of Twitter and Square, Elizabeth Stark, co-founder of Lightning Labs and the Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao.

The torch was passed on by Zhao to Viktor Radchenko, founder of Trust Wallet, who passed it on to Justin Sun, CEO of Tron. Now the question remains, who wants to be the next one to hold the torch and pass it on.

Litecoin creator Charlie Lee wanted it for himself when Elizabeth Stark suggested for it. He pointed out that no one wants it so he can take it off Zhao’s hands. To which Zhao tweeted saying that Lee can have it soon enough but let him just get Elon Musk in the game.

Elon Musk hasn’t replied to it or to supporters’ questions and frantic tagging of him on Twitter. As known Musk is deeply busy with work at SpaceX presently. The company is working hard to make things right after massive layoffs.

According to Daily Hodl, Lightning Network torch is with Sun and making its way to the next biggie. Chengpeng Zhao suggested him to pass it on to NBA champion Kobe Bryant. Tron’s recent Nitron Summit featured Byrant as the keynote speaker.

Binance’s Zhao sees the effect of this Twitter game. These microtransactions of Lightning Network proves the scaling solution for Bitcoin. The two forks of Bitcoin has viably created systems where the transaction value is lower, as mentioned on CCN. 

Other notable Lightning Network torch-bearers in the week-long experiment include @Excellion or Samson Mow, the outspoken Blockstream Chief Strategy Officer, Andreas Antonopoulos who passed it on to pseudonymous Peter Parker. Lightning Network is designed to improve the speed of the transaction and lower the transaction value, and since it has become a viral twitter game for the crypto twitterati.
