A few hours ago, Sun took to Twitter to announce the launch of the Snapchat competitor, BitTorrent Live. The product aims to allow users to communicate through a streaming service. However, the product is still in the preview stage, but it hopes to be a competitor to top social media platforms.

It is basically a social media platform and live streaming platform. Its interface is similar to Snapchat and allows users to share their video content with ease.

Continuous streaming would be a breeze for users who have internet access.

Tron BitTorrent CEO believes that the initiative is not like any other when it comes to content experience. He said,

How BitTorrent came into the scene

In 2001, BitTorrent, a file-sharing platform, came into the scene. It was popular because users made it a tool to download pirated music, videos and illicit material.

The company remained firm despite so many attempts to shut it down. Its saving grace has been the fact that it is an agnostic tool for efficiently and effectively downloading files.

The company became a part of Tron when it was purchased for $150 million in 2018. At the time, the platform had about 100 million active users.

Tron price prediction 2019

So far, Tron has had a good week. Yesterday was even better as it bounced back despite heavy selling pressure. The TRX/USD pair found support at $0.022300.

According to CoinMarketCap, Tron is currently trading at $0.023296. Tron price prediction 2019 is also quite promising. Analysts believe that the digital currency will benefit greatly from the next crypto bull run.

Perhaps the recent news from Tron founder has a role to play in the market spike. Sun announced the winners of the USDT-TRON marketing stunt car giveaway. The winner was rewarded with a brand new mini cooper. Community members can still participate in the giveaway.

Smartereum also reported that Tron would launch BitTorrent Speed in the second quarter of the year. Sun has found another way to promote the platforms; staying in the press often. The publicity has done a lot of good for the cryptocurrency.

With news like this in the press, the next crypto bull run is closer than we think.
