BitTorrent peer-to-peer network with 100 million monthly active users will add TRON blockchain to their network. Project name Atlas is a new product that will pave the future of content distribution. BitTorrent seeders who share files on network will receive cryptocurrency Tron to run faster p2p network and seed torrents for longer time.
Tron founder and CEO Justin Sun said:
“To start, the product will feature faster downloads, more seeds, no mining, and backward compatibility. It is adapted to the world we live in today: mobile, connected, and transparent. We aim to eventually empower all content creators and their communities by eliminating the middleman and enabling content creators to distribute directly to users.”
