Trillion dollar titan Fidelity Digital Assets received the Bitcoin Lightning Network Torch and passed it to Harvard.
Fidelity Digital Assets is the arm of the asset manager based in Boston Fidelity Investments.
Passing around the torch to prove the effectiveness of LN
This torch is a symbolic Bitcoin transaction of about $144 that has been getting passed around the globe from person to person just to show how easy it is to use the Lightning Network (LN).
The LN is a layer-2 solution that has been designed to power faster payments.
As more and more players are joining in, they have all been adding small amounts of Bitcoin.
The Daily Hodl reports that Fidelity has “$7.4 trillion total customer assets as of September 30, 2018. After posting record-breaking profits on Friday, with annual income topping $6 billion and revenue hitting an all-time high of $20.4 billion, Fidelity became the first financial services institution to grab the torch and demonstrate its support of Bitcoin as a viable payment rail.”
After they picked up the Torch, Fidelity handed it off to Harvard Business School on the eve of its annual Blockchain Summit.
Harvard has an endorsement of $39 billion, and it’s one of the elite universities which reportedly owns Bitcoin and more cryptos.
More important names had the Torch
Other essential figures in the crypto space have had the Torch. There include Tron’s Justin Sun, Binance’s Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Twitter and Square, Jack Dorsey and more.
