  • 15:32 Bitcoin Lightning Torch 2.0 Has Been Stolen 4 Times Already

    Bitcoin's second Lightning Torch has been stolen four times by various pseudonymous Twitter members with an interest in Bitcoin. The Lightning Torch is a game where a participant sends a Lightning Network transaction to other participants around the globe. The participant then adds some Satoshis to the original transaction amount and passes it on to another participant. The game was originally devised as a way to test Lightning Network viability and channel transaction limits.
    The thefts do highlight the weakness of trust-based systems, and the shortcomings of using a trust-minimized technology like Bitcoin in a manner which still requires trust in a third-party. The community of Lightning Network enthusiasts spoke out against the thieves and thanked the participants who replaced the stolen funds out of pocket, in various posts within the thread.
