Coindesk reports that since June 26, 2019, the Lightning Torch protocol has been tested on the Stellar cryptocurrency blockchain (“Burning torch ”), designed to perform transactions with a low commission on the Bitcoin network (BTC).
Blockchain Lightning Torch Test ProjectStellar is led by Wouter Arkink, who works for Asito, a Dutch company. Arkink drew on a protocol study of several members of the crypto community during the Stellar Meridian conference, which was held in Mexico City in November this year. Then the idea was supported by the director of the Stellar Development Foundation Lisa Nestor.
Test participants use the appKeybase for transferring digital assets to other users. At the same time, money can be sent even to people who are not registered in Keybase. To do this, the sender must send Stellar Torch (the so-called transaction using the Lightning Torch protocol) to the recipient (for example, a Twitter user). After the recipient confirms the transaction, Keybase will automatically create a wallet in which the sent coins will be stored. Twitter user has the right to access cryptocurrency for a commission of 2 XLM (7.3 rubles).
Stellar Torch does not have an end goal, andit is essentially a social experiment designed to increase people's interest in cryptocurrencies. Project managers hold various challenges. For example, the user should be the first person to send Torch to a resident of a particular country or celebrity. Some testers record videos to perpetuate the moment of transfer of the “Torch”. For the entire duration of the project, not one of the recipients of the payment took the money. Instead, people continue to pass Torch, which has already covered nearly 500,000 kilometers.
