Justin Sun, the man behind Tron, the famous blockchain focused on decentralization of web content continues to revolutionize the blockchain technology sector, creating real cases for the uses of cryptocurrency.
In a strategic decision, the TRON team announced that, after an update of the p2p file sharing platform known as BitTorrent, users who provide content will receive a reward in Tronix (TRX) to stimulate file sharing.
Previously, the process of sharing content via the torrent protocol was completely free. The seeders were the content providers and the leechers were those who consumed or downloaded the files. Without a greater incentive to save material, a planter had no real motivation to keep a file available for download by others.
The decision to use TRX to support BitTorrent comes after the announcement of Project Atlas, an essential project within the Tron Roadmap, in which the blockchain is used as a basis for Bittorrent architecture. With this innovation, the Tron team hopes to transform the content distribution industry as a step forward in their vision of "web decentralization".
Tron: decentralize the web with the atlas of the project
According to PR News Wire, Justin Sun commented on the importance of the Project Atlas within the Tron Roadmap:
"Project Atlas is the basis for a new way of distributing content. To start, the product will feature faster downloads, more seeds, no mining and compatibility with previous versions. It is adapted to the world in which we live today: mobile, connected and transparent. We aim to finally empower all content creators and their communities by eliminating brokers and allowing content creators to distribute them directly to users "
The backward compatibility of Project Atlas allows all BitTorrent users to take advantage of these services regardless of the client they use; however, the economic incentive to receive a reward for a seed file is an excellent way to ensure the massive adoption of the new Tron blockchain-based BitTorrent platform.
Furthermore, it is important to note that users will be able pay the sowers to allocate more bandwidth for their particular equipment, thus guaranteeing a faster download speed and stimulating the use of TRX both by sowers and leechers.
Currently, Tron (TRX) is in 13th place on the list of the most important cryptocurrencies with a total market capitalization of $ 1,457,742.004 at the time of writing this article.
