Tron and BitTorrent
We’ve covered the merger between Tron’s blockchain network and the BitTorrent network extensively in this website, so chances are you already know what we’re talking about. Just in case, we’ll review the essential information you need to know about it to take advantage of this article’s information.
BitTorrent has been the world’s largest P2P decentralized network for a very long time now (as long times are measured on the internet). It boasts hundreds of millions of unique users every month, and it holds an insane amount of content of all sorts from music to movies, books and anything you could imagine.
Being a colossal network full of content and already decentralized (though not employing blockchain technology) it’s something of a precursor for Tron. Let’s not forget that Tron’s ambition is to decentralize the web using blockchain technology, and that wish is mainly aimed at the multimedia content which in BitTorrent is already available and decentralized.
That’s why the Tron Foundation bought BitTorrent a few months ago. After the acquisition, it announced the merging of BitTorrent into Tron’s network in something called “Project Atlas.” The new Tron-based BitTorrent network will be powered by a Tron-based cryptocurrency called BitTorrent Token (BTT).
Using marketing very adeptly (as is the usual case with Tron and Justin Sun) the Foundation is doing a BTT airdrop. If you hold any TRX at all, and if you hold them in a selected group of wallets and/or exchange platforms, then you qualify to get some BTT for free. The airdrop is ongoing as it started last February 11th and it gives away about 0.01 BTT for every TRX in your account.
And now for the beef. Which are the wallets and platforms that will support the airdrop? The ones in this list:
- Trust Wallet
- Vena Pi
- Bittrex International
- Atomic Wallet
- Swft Blockchain
- TRX Market
- Cross Exchange
If your TRX is in any of those platforms, you don’t need to do anything. Just wait and see how you get some BTT. Share and enjoy!
