Lightning Torch 2: “68 bearers and 29 countries in less than 2 days” on Twitter

To celebrate the first birthday of Hodlonaut‘s famous #LNTrustChain initiative, the Lightning Torch began its second round on Sunday, January 19th, 2020, reaching 68 bearers in less than two days in 29 countries around the world via Twitter. 

In fact, the Lightning torch relay on Twitter was once again unleashed by Hodlonaut right after the celebration of its first birthday. Here is a video in honour of the year just spent together with all the personalities who participated. 

“Today 1 Year ago hodlonaut started the #LNTrustChain torch rally. Here is a video with many of the Torch bearers of this historic movement that helped surely a bit to popularize LN”.

Apparently, despite the strong success for the whole community, Hodlonaut didn’t want to waste time and on the same day on Sunday launched a second initiative, referred to by the hashtag #LNTrustChain2:

“Some LN fun…
– I send 100k sats to the first person I choose to trust that replies to this tweet with a 100k sats LN invoice
– That person adds 10k sats and makes a tweet asking for a 110k sats LN invoice
.. and so on
How many sats before it breaks #LNTrustChain2″.

This time, more prepared and involved, the Lightning Network community responded as fast as lightning and achieved amazing results. Not only that, by adding 10,000 satoshis to the next invoices, it is possible to count the passes made by the torch. 

In the first day alone, it was passed among 14 carriers, as reported in the following tweet:

Now, while the latest bearer is in India and the invoice has reached 800,000 satoshis, the overall detailed situation is presented by Hodlonaut:

“The #LNTrustChain2 torch is ultra fast! Made over 30 passes across the globe while I slept. Now up to 68 torch bearers and 29 countries in less than two days!
Map getting more lit up by the hour! #TheYellowening”.

Who knows whether the torch will be able to pass through every country on the planet, lighting the entire map. Hodlonaut’s mission can be monitored on the official Twitter channel.
