One of the things that I have not talked about too much on this blog is the Bitcoin Lightning Network. While just understanding the basics of Bitcoin and blockchain can be hard enough on the beginner, getting into 2nd layer solutions like Lighting Network can be even more difficult to wrap your head around if you don't already have the right foundations of understanding. I will actually be putting together a beginners guide on the Lightning Network soon, but I wanted to share a cool tidbit of lightning goodness with you that I was involved in recently.
If you keep up with crypto news you might have seen something recently about the Lightning Network Torch being passed around Twitter to various high profile people in the industry. It's kind of like a "crypto relay race" as people pass an amount of Bitcoin around then add a little to it before passing it on to the next person in an effort to "pass the torch". I got to participate in this recently and thought it was a great learning experience so I made a quick video to explain what the Lightning Network Tiny Torch is and how it is actually passed from one person to the next.
Have you ever sent payments using the Lightning Network for Bitcoin? Let me know in the comments! More cool Lightning Network stuff coming at you soon, but until next time...
