Launched in January, the Lightning Torch promotion is officially closed. All battles collected during its course (0.4108021 BTC) have donated humanitarian initiatives for Bitcoin to Venezuela.
He wrote about this in his Twitter charity organization Bitcoin Venezuela.

As part of the humanitarian initiative they are taking, representatives of Bitcoin Venezuela during the recent massive power outages in this South American country have distributed food to those who need it.
Another Bitcoin Venezuela project is being implemented in partnership with the Locha Mesh network and offers the opportunity to create inexpensive open-source devices that support decentralized and censored resilient networks. Users can support secure communication with these networks and send and receive transactions with bitcomin without Internet access.
Let's recall, the global action Lightning Torch was coordinated via the social network Twitter and was organized according to the principle of the Olympic torch – up to the initial payment of 100,000 satoshi (0.001 BTC) each new participant added 10,000 satoshi by challenging the next user. The purpose of the experiment was to show the capabilities of the second level of the Lightning network protocol.
The campaign lasted 83 days, users from 56 countries, who together generated 293 Lightning-payment.
Among those who broadcast Lightning Torch, you can name such famous community representatives as Pierre Roshard, Jack Mullers, Nicolas Dorier (BTCPayServer), Bitrefill team, Anthony Pompiano, Andreas Antonopoulos, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Elizabeth Stark, Samson Mou, Ricardo Spagni , Alena Vranova, WhalePanda, Giacomo Zucco, Executive Director Binance Changpen Zhao, founder of Tron Justin San, Eric Vorges, Charlie Shrem, Adam Beck, Slush Pool Minerals, Peter Velle, Fidelity Digital Assets and Miss Finland Miss Maria Ryuti.
Unfortunately, he was the initiator of this unique experiment, the Hodlonaut user, recently forced to deactivate his account on Twitter. This happened after the self-styled Bitcoin creator Craig Wright threatened him with an action to distribute "inaccurate and discredit his name and data on dignity," and some supporters of the Australian language are in public access to the personal information of the user.
On Friday night, Head of Lightning Labs, Elizabeth Stark, announced the launch of a massive fundraising campaign to help the Hodlonaut in a possible legal battle with Craig Wright.
Announcing a massive campaign to help the @nlonnaut defend against unfounded legal attacks. The remaining funds will be donated @btcven. Expand the word and give it away! Https: //t.co/X95BoQbO8D
