It designs distributed technologies that keep creators and consumers in control of their content and data. BitTorrent is a communication protocol for peer-to-peer file sharing which is one of the most common protocols for transferring large files, such as digital video files containing TV shows or video clips or digital audio files containing songs. In early January this year, the company launched its own BTT token based on Tron TRC-10 token. According to the BitTorrent officials, the token will be used on the platform to “transact in computing resources shared between BitTorrent clients and any other participating service headquarters and service providers.”
