Tron (TRX) is one of the most successful blockchain projects in the blockchain world right now. The digital currency has been in the headlines more often over the past months, as it has been thriving hard to remain relevant and become one of the most used and adopted digital currencies in the crypto space.
A few months ago, the founder and CEO of the blockchain project – Justin Sun, made a milestone acquisition that has never been seen in the crypto space. Sun acquired one of the largest torrent platforms in the world – BitTorrent back in July for about $140 million, and Tron (TRX) has been working to integrate the platform into its blockchain since then.
Tron (TRX) aims to improve the protocol of BitTorrent, to make it much better and faster, and the blockchain project has dubbed this initiative “Project Atlas.” The firm announced “Project Atlas” right after it successfully acquired BitTorrent. Tron (TRX) is now planning to use its native digital currency – TRX – within the user base of the platform to build a hybrid content sharing ecosystem that will leverage digital currency.
Tron (TRX) aims to use Project Atlas to start a new way of distributing content. To begin with, the product will feature more seeds, faster downloads, backward compatibility, and no mining, according to the CEO of Tron (TRX).
According to a tweet by Justin Sun, “The integration is aimed at empowering all content creators, as well as their communities, by getting rid of intermediaries and allowing content creators distribute their contents directly to users.” Justin Sun has also promised to release further details about the features of Project Atlas in a presentation which is scheduled to take place today, Sept. 28th.
