BTT and TRX together Creates a New Internet Economy Driven by Decentralization: Justin Sun

Published

on

BitTorrent foundation is finally going to initiate the first airdrop of BitTorrent (BTT) today at block height 6.6 million to Tron (TRX) holders. It would involve the airdrop of 10,890,000,000 BitTorrent (BTT), corresponding to 1.1 percent of total supply.

BitTorrent Foundation also plans to airdrop additional 99,990,000,000 BTT that is 10 percent of the total supply to long-term Tron holders during online and offline events.

There is no minimum TRX required to qualify for BTT airdrops. Everyone who is holding TRX and all officials wallets relaying on Tron network and carrying TRX are eligible for BTT airdrops, in the ratio of approximately 1 TRX = 0.11 BTT.

Longest Airdrop in History

BitTorrent airdrop is not going to be just one-off event rather it is a gift that will keep on giving. According to the official announcement,“Over the next 12 months following this initial airdrop, 11,880,000,000 BTT will be offered to TRX holders, corresponding to 1.2% of total supply. In 2020, the BitTorrent Foundation will airdrop 12,870,000,000 BTT, corresponding to 1.3% of the total supply, and over the next six years, the percentage airdropped will increase by 0.1% per year, reaching 1.7% in 2025.”

Tron Founder and BitTorrent CEO, Justin Sun has this to say about TRX and BTT’s integration into BiTorrent,“Think of Tron and BitTorrent like a razor and a blade. You need both together to create a new internet economy driven by decentralization. We are seeding BTT to deliver a marketplace of innovations and applications across the web.”

Tron Founder Takes a Jab at Ethereum Founder

Meanwhile, Sun doesn’t let go any chance to take a jab at Ethereum or its co-founder Vitalik Buterin.

Recently we reported how Sun announced a “secret campaign” for Buterin over him choosing BitTorrent as the proved “real long lasting use case for decentralized applications” back in 2017. Just last week, Buterin had taken a jab at Tron with,

“When a blockchain project claims ‘We can do 3,500 TPS because we have a different algorithm,’ what we really mean is ‘We are a centralized pile of trash because we only have 7 nodes running the entire thing.’”

Well, now Sun’s followers on Twitter has reached 835k in comparison to Buterin’s 832k and he is not letting it slide unnoticed.

On the price front, at the time of writing, Tron has been trading at $0.02555 with the 24-hours loss of 0.19 percent. The eighth largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of $1.7 billion is in the red by 0.30 percent in the BTC market.

Tron (TRX) Posts New Block Height Best with Justin Sun Advocating for Mainstream Adoption

Published

on

Justin Sun, the CEO of Tron (TRX), has been a very powerful force in the crypto marketlately. He has been leading a movement to push crypto forward and to reach mainstream adoption. In order to make this happen, he is making several upgrades on the Tron network that will lead the company into becoming a better product and to have partnerships with several other companies.

In fact, the Tron Foundation is set to help the world to finally reach the so-called Web 4.0, which is said to be the future of the internet. The company has two strong competitors, though, EOS and Ethereum (ETH), which are all competing for the place as the main king of the decentralized platforms together with Bitcoin (which is more focused on crypto transactions).

Now, Justin Sun has used social media in order to tell the community that Tron has reached a new block height and that the company has exceeded 8.6 million blocks. The number was reached using TronScan, a tool that helps users to determine the block height on the Tron network.

Sun affirmed that Tron is keeping up with its efforts to create a more decentralized internet. According to him, Tron is an important road to reach major mainstream adoption, which will be important both for the token and for the world as well, as it needs companies which are focused on using the blockchain to solve problems.

Tron has just recently jumped from the block height 8 million to 8,614,366 now. In only 20 days, the token was able to mine over 600 thousand blocks. This means that the network is increasing its size very quickly and that Tron is finally seeing some well-deserved adoption around the world. At the moment, the network also has 2.6 million accounts and 1193 online nodes.

Not everybody was so impressed with Tron, though. Some crypto enthusiasts on social media complained that the internet is effectively a single network and that it simply cannot be decentralized because of that, so he said that Tron should strive for a more decentralized notion that the Web 4.0.

In any case, what is clear to us is that Tron is faring very well this year and that the company has plenty of chances of consolidating its presence in the future.

On Tuesday, April 23, the founder of the Tron Foundation wrote on Twitter that Tron has received an official invitation from Liverpool Football Club (LFC) regarding an official partnership.

Justin Sun has again made the community feel intrigued.

Is Tron entering the global sports industry?

To his announcement on Twitter, Justin Sun has attached a promo video by LFC where the logos of the two future partners are shown together.

This could mean anything, but Justin Sun has refused to provide any details so far, promising to do that later on.

As per Sun, the invitation to make a partnership was initiated by the football club, not Tron. Still, he sounds enthusiastic and, judging by the comment thread, seems to make the Tron community feel the same.

Many are left bewildered by what is going to happen between these two giants of such different global industries.

Is Tron entering the global sports industry?

A prominent Tron supporter, Misha Lederman, has assumed that the multi hundred million audience of LFC could be a great addition to the current user base of BitTorrent and Tron.

Is Tron entering the global sports industry?

Tron community tries to find out the nuances

Justin Sun got snowed under with questions, the main theme of which was ‘is that really true?!’

Many expressed their doubts, though, or started to make proposals of partnering with Tron as well.

Crypto and the global football industry

Last time the global community of crypto enthusiasts had an excuse to get connected with football was the global championship that took place in Russia last year.

Back then, many hotels and hostels in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other major cities accepted Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for room booking and other services. Crypto was accepted in numerous pubs and even taxi drivers took it from foreign customers.
