BitTorrent to Launch Own Crypto by Summer
BitTorrent, the largest torrent client, will launch its own cryptocurrency until this summer. With the help of coin, users will be able to receive a reward for the data seeding.
Last year, the founder of cryptocurrency Tron Justin Sun acquired BitTorrent. After that, the company began to carry out plans to create its own cryptocurrency. Today BitTorrent announced that the coin will appear by the summer of 2019. The token received the BTT ticker, and it will be based on the Tron blockchain.
According to BitTorrent, now the total number of customers reaches 100 million people. After the launching of BTT, they will be able to receive a reward in crypto for the distribution of data. Also, with tokens, customers will be able to pay for faster downloading the information.
But these options will only be available for US customers. All others could purchase BTT at cryptocurrency exchange Binance.
