Tron’s New BitTorrent Play Set to Disrupt the Entertainment Business
TRON has always been on the forefront of innovation within the blockchain industry. From its very inception, the platform has many developers and cryptocurrency fanatics excited. Claims that TRON might be the new alternative to Ethereum—or even its killer—ran amuck.
Although the hype surrounding the company itself has largely dissipated, TRON still continues to up their involvement in a variety of projects poised to shake up traditional ways of doing business in a variety of sectors.
In the company’s most recent move, executives from TRON posted to Twitter that they would be hosting the BitTorrent Play application, a gaming platform which could cause some serious revolution within the massive international entertainment industry.
BitTorrent will operate out of TRON’s own corporate offices within San Francisco, and will be working closely with the company for the rolling out of their brand-new platform for gaming on the blockchain.
The announcement of the partnership closely follows the initial announcement on Twitter by BitTorrent, who released information on the mobile gaming platform. Operating at the moment only on Apple products including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, the system allows users to access music, videos, as well as content from underground or largely independent artists that might otherwise not get this kind of exposure.
A Decentralized Autonomous Ecosystem
Via some new reports, BitTorrent is looking to create their own decentralized ecosystem, the largest in the world. An ambitious goal, the company has been clear in their objective to expand quickly into the global marketplaces and into a variety of new industries within the general umbrella of entertainment, gaming, and media.
This would not be the first time a major cryptocurrency company has attempted to create a large global ecosystem. Hundreds of overzealous Initial Coin Offerings have promised investors that they will one day be a part of a functional global ecosystem operating on a unique blockchain platform. But if the track record of BitTorrent is to be believed, this promise may be more than simply smoke and mirrors.
The company’s work with TRON is yet another reason that the global ecosystem might come into fruition. TRON’s reputation in the cryptocurrency community is matched by very few, and the company is headed by a variable who’s who of professionals in the blockchain and cryptography sectors.
The merger between the two companies is not one-sided, as some might initially speculate. Joining the existing TRON network is a calculated business move that will expand their user-base to the millions of followers interested in TRON-based platforms and applications.
Additionally, this company has promised that the TRON business development department will be assisted heavily by BitTorrent as it continues to develop its product, user-base, and global brand. For both companies, it seems that global expansion and growth is the name of the game.
In the highly competitive market of blockchain companies in the 21st century, it seems that BitTorrent has carved out a unique space and niche to innovate and attempt to expand. With TRON’s help, they might just be successful.
