Utorrent Enters The Race To Be a Tron Super Representative
For a long time, it was rumored that Justin Sun, Tron’s founder, would acquire BitTorrent, the largest torrent company in the world. Just recently, the acquisition was a reality and the Tron owner has bought the P2P network for about $140 million USD, getting over 100 million users in the process.
As soon as the transaction was official, uTorrent, the most popular BitTorrent client, has decided to bid to become a super representative of the Tron Network
uTorrent was created by Ludvig Strigeus and it is maintained by BitTorrent developers. Its main function is to provide a decentralized and peer-governed access to content creators and consumers in over 130 countries. The company has a strong background with decentralization and backing net neutrality, sharing the same values of BitTorrent.
The platform has a huge infrastructure and it handles millions of users around the world. At the moment, it has 72 CPU cores, 1TB RAM and 3T SSD with a total available budget of $120,000 USD. The company has advanced data centers and servers on the platform that are very advanced and disaster recovery centers in both Iceland and Los Angeles.
BitTorrent In The Super Representative Race
In a recent post made by the Tron Foundation, it was said that BitTorrent’s values were considered to be in line with the ambitions of Tron as the beliefs of decentralization and collaboration. The companies hope to collaborate in the great blockchain revolution.
The Tron Foundation has even called BitTorrent the most qualified super representative candidate for its worldwide user base and a massive support, as well as technology.
It is important to notice, however, that Justin Sun has announced his candidacy as super representant too, which was met both with skepticism and praise from the community. As Sun, BitTorrent and uTorrent have entered the race, an important question should be asked: will the program be dominated by services owned by Tron itself?
This can be the cause for some alarm as the super representative program was supposed to be a bridge between the Tron Foundation and the community and, if most of the delegates will be from the foundation, how will the project work?
