Tron (TRX) says its new acquisition of BitTorrent – a legacy file sharing platform – will help it bring the internet into a decentralized era. The long-held core belief of the file-sharing platform of a decentralized internet is in line with the values of Tron (TRX), and the collaboration of Tron and BitTorrent is sure to contribute to a brighter and better internet – according to the Tron Foundation.
How Tron and BitTorrent Will Work Together
To begin with, Tron plans to integrate BitTorrent and its massive user base (over 100 million users) directly into the ecosystem of Tron. With this integration, Tron is aimed at redeeming the internet from the stronghold of big firms, give individuals ‘data rights’ once again, and reignite the 21st-century vision of a decentralized, free, and transparent network to connect the world.
The protocol of BitTorrent is a staple and pioneer of the peer-to-peer, decentralized file sharing industry, enabling users to download and upload large files from each other simultaneously. Due to the fact that the technology is usually used to share copyrighted contents – something blockchain tech promises to prevent – the platform is extremely controversial.
Will BitTorrent’s Legacy Version Change?
It seems Tron’s integration and assimilation of BitTorrent won’t affect the platform of BitTorrent that millions of people have used for over fifteen years. In response to some speculations and rumors, the file-sharing platform published a statement saying that the firm won’t forsake its core product. Stating that the platform has no plans to alter what they do or change the services they provide.
