Bitcoin and Lightening
Transversing the globe at lightening speed
Bitcoin is a “Trustless” transaction, verified b a global community. What better way to illustrate this than the #lighteningtorch movement, initiated by a Twitter Bitcoin Maximillist Enthusiast... ”@Hodlonaut”.
Tweeters, tweet an invoice to a trusted Bitcoiner, via the lightening network, who in turn add Bitcoin and pass in another invoice to another trusted Bitcoiner.
So far 2.8 million satoshis have changed hands nearly 150 times across 39 countries. With such notable torch bearers like Andreas Antonopoulos and Jack Dorsey... on it goes.
Eventually the proceeds will be donated to BTC Venezuela (a cryptocurrency charity)... peer to peer, trustless, banked, governmentless, so who needs institutional money or controls... people are proving they can do it themselves.
The Hodlonaut’s total transaction capacity is set at a 2.2 bitcoin limit before the experiment terminates.
How cool is that!
