The Bitcoin Lightning torch is now in the hands of Tron CEO Justin Sun.
The torch, which represents a batch of BTC being moved from one user to another via the Lightning Network, was passed to Sun by Trust Wallet founder Viktor Radchenko.

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, who held the torch before Radchenko, says Sun should hand it over to NBA champion Kobe Bryant. Tron’s recent Nitron Summit featured Bryant as the keynote speaker.
Give it to Kobe Bryant, lol

The Lightning Torch phenomenon was started by twitter’s Hodlonaut, who passed a small amount of BTC on the Lightning Network to show the power of the software solution, which is designed to improve the speed and lower the cost of Bitcoin transactions. It has since turned into a viral game of crypto hot potato.
