The Lightning Torch movement is something like this. Using the Twitter platform, people (mostly Bitcoin enthusiasts) pass on the “torch payment” by adding 10,000 satoshis worth $0.35 to the actual payment made to others. The community terms this as the “LN Trust Chain”. Also, anyone holding the torch has to send it some they trust and who will pass it further.
Elon Musk to Take Charge of Lightning Torch?
To further relay the Lightning Torch transaction, Zhao nominated Tesla CEO Elon Musk as the next contender. Dorsey as well had recommended Musk’s name to keep the torch flame going. However, Musk has maintained his silence on this matter so far.
To Zhao’s above tweet, one of his followers suggested the name of Elizabeth Stark, the co-founder of Lightning Labs. Having already held the torch earlier, Stark requested getting new people into the fold. She recommended Litecoin creator Charlie Lee.

It is absolutely not certain whether Musk will participate in this experiment. However, the Lightning Torch experiment has seen many successful people join the bandwagon just in three weeks since it started. Also, this is not for the first time that Musk’s name has sparked up in a Bitcoin-related activity.
Last year, a report suggested that Elon Musk could be the person behind the suspicious identity of Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. Well, looking to Musk’s superhuman skills and excellent entrepreneurial wisdom, there’s almost nothing this man can’t do.
