Renowned Canadian psychologist and cultural critic Jordan Peterson has expressed his interest in joining the Bitcoin (BTC) Lightning Network.
The challenge came from a Twitter user known as Joe Nakamoto on February 14, who urged Peterson to share a Bitcoin lightning address instead of using the crowdfunding platform GoFundMe.
This is after Pererson shared a GoFundMe page asking for donations to help a victim who had suffered losses due to fire. In this case, Nakamoto asked Peterson to set up a lightning address as it would open up donations globally as well as those without debit or credit cards.
Peterson noted that he had limited knowledge of setting up an address and asked to be ‘enlightened.’
For instance, the rollout of Bitcoin payments in El Salvador was facilitated by Strike, a payment service that operates on the Lightning Network. Another case is Twitter’s adoption of the Lightning Network to enable Bitcoin tips on its platform.
