Lightning Torch, which involves users of Bitcoin’s Lightning Network implementation sending a transaction between themselves, increasing its value with each stop, has gained a loyal following since it launched January 19.
Its instigator was a Bitcoin user known on Twitter as hodlonaut, and has since attracted the attention of well-known Bitcoin figures as the torch has been relayed by over 150 people.
When Twitter CEO Dorsey (@jack) came on board, the relay saw considerable press attention. While Dorsey used the occasion to hint at direct involvement between Twitter and Bitcoin payments, however, attention has already focused elsewhere.
A similar long-term proponent of Bitcoin, Musk is a natural follow-on for the Torch, users were claiming on Twitter Thursday.
“I propose that every torch bearer from now makes a tweet to (Musk) to get him to pick it up! It seems (kind of) obvious that he should at some point,” hodlonaut wrote.
