BitTorrent Token (BTT) is the token of the world's largest decentralized peer-to-peer protocol, BitTorent.

The BitTorrent protocol is a method of sharing and downloading files on a peer-to-peer network that improves both speed and efficiency. When a user downloads a file, BitTorrent breaks the file up into hundreds of small pieces. Unlike traditional downloads, the file is viewable and sharable as soon as one part of the file is downloaded.

The BitTorrent Token (BTT) allows content creators to connect with their audience, earn and spend digital currency without a middleman. BTT can also be bid in exchange for faster downloads.

History

The BitTorrent company was bought by Tron for $140 million in cash in August 2018. After buying BitTorent, the BitTorent Token was launched on the Tron blockchain.

BTT is a native TRC-10 token and can be exchanged for TRX. Tron was founded in September 2017 by Justin Sun and is dedicated to creating a boundary-free internet that inspires innovation across industries.
