BitTorent has decided this week to accept payments in Bitcoin (BTC), Binance Coin (BNB) and Tronix (TRX) for its premium subscription.
Bittorent applicationThe first peer-to-peer file transfer platform made this announcement on Tuesday. It will thus offer its users the opportunity to subscribe to a premium subscription thanks to their crypto-currencies, which will allow them to enjoy the BitTorrent software without any advertising. They will also have access to a file conversion system, an antivirus, as well as a media player.
Following this announcement, Justin Sun, the CEO of startup Tron, expressed his enthusiasm:
“BitTorrent joins the growing list of internet companies whose products and services can be obtained through TRXs. With more than 100 million BitTorrent users, this initiative will help increase the use of TRX in marketplaces while providing consumers with more options for enjoying premium BitTorrent products. “
In July, we learned that TRON had bought BitTorrent for $ 126 million.
“With the integration of BitTorrent, TRON aims to free the Internet from the grip of large multinationals and to give back rights to their data to individuals. It also seeks to revive the avant-garde perspective of a free, transparent and decentralized network, “the leader said.
The BitTorrent software, which revolutionized file sharing, was launched in 2004 by BitTorrent, Inc., a California-based company. It allows users to download large content through a decentralized protocol. Applications using technology developed by the company would be downloaded each year on more than 200 million devices.
