About the BTT Token
BTT is a token based on the TRC-10 protocol, built on the Tron blockchain network. It is designed to integrate seamlessly with the BitTorrent protocol, which currently has 100 million regular users.
The primary objective of BTT is simplifying and improving the efficiency of sharing files and other resources. The BitTorrent network is made of many ‘peers’, each of which has a piece of the file to be shared. Users who have complete files are called ‘seeds.’
The BitTorrent team recently introduced a new feature called BitTorrent Speed, aimed at increasing the adoption of BTT. This feature allows users to access files faster by making BTT payments to each other. This means that seeds can earn BTT for making files available to other users on the network.
BitTorrent Speed intends to use financial incentives to optimize the allocation of resources on the BitTorrent network. It is expected to follow a bidding system, where interested parties express their interest and the seed chooses the highest bidet.
