Today BitTorrent Inc. has announced that users of the BitTorrent and uTorrent platforms can now pay the popular Pro and Ads Free products using Tron (TRX), Binance Coin (BNB) and Bitcoin (BTC). The payment process is made possible by the integration of CoinPayments.net. This is a leading provider of integrated payment gateways for cryptocurrencies. This BitTorrent move is perfect for the decentralized peer-to-peer file sharing platform where cryptocurrencies also operate in a decentralized way.
TRON founder and BitTorrent's CEO, Justin Sun, have said this about the new development of BitTorrent.
BitTorrent joins a growing list of online companies whose products and services accept TRX as payment.
With over 100 million BitTorrent users, the move helps increase the use of TRX in online markets, giving consumers more options to unlock the value of BitTorrent's premium products.
After the Tron Foundation acquired the BitTorrent platform and file sharing platform, the crypto community was eager to find out how TRON would use the platform to further decentralize the web. With over 100 million active users on BitTorrent, Project Atlas aims to use a number of BitTorrent protocol extensions, a custom token and an in-client token economy to address the existing limits, the company aims to open a new economy without borders, where users can exchange value for IT resources on a global scale.
Over 2,000 Tron nodes worldwide
The Tron network has made great strides in a considerably short time. Just the other day, the platform celebrated its independence from the Ethereum network and now there are exactly 2,019 nodes managing the Tron network.
This goal was not lacking in the Tron community, as can be seen in the following tweet of @MishaLederman
