Two months after acquiring torrent client BitTorrent, CEO Justin Sun has revealed how the torrent protocol will be integrated into the decentralized Tron network. The TRX token will be used within a hybrid content sharing platform. This product ‘will feature faster downloads, more seeds, no mining and backward compatibility’.
Ideally Sun wants consumers to receive content for content creators directly ‘by eliminating the middleman’. The arrangement with BitTorrent will also allow consumers to pay in TRX for premium features, like faster downloads. Seeding files can also result in TRX rewards.
Justin Sun and Tron have named this project ‘Project Atlas’. They will reveal more details during a presentation on September 28th (USA time), and September 29th 4AM CET, which you can watch below.
