Hundreds of thousands of members of the TRON community are using the power of tronscan.org, TRON wallet, and their TRX balances to vote for 27 SR candidates. Last week, µTorrent entered its candidacy to run for TRON SR. This week, we extend a big thank you to the community for electing us as a TRON Super Representative. As the company behind one of the most popular decentralized p2p applications in the world, µTorrent has an invested interest in maintaining a stable and reliable decentralized network for TRON over the coming years. Today we celebrate. Tomorrow we provide the infrastructure needs to meet the demands of the TRON ecosystem of decentralized apps and services of the future. Thank you once again!
As a practitioner of the BitTorrent protocol, it’s no coincidence that µTorrent shares the same values and vision with another super representative candidate, BitTorrent. Our team is comprised of strong advocates of net neutrality and decentralized internet values, making µTorrent an ideal candidate to become elected as a TRON Super Representative.
µTorrent is participating in the election to promote the value of decentralizing the internet. To further qualify its bid to become a super representative, µTorrent already runs an extensive infrastructure to support its massive worldwide user base. It has servers housed in multiple state of art data centers around the world with disaster recovery centers in Los Angeles and Iceland.
Its team is comprised of some of the original custodians of BitTorrent and are still active in the open source community to enhance its legacy. We hope you share in µTorrent’s enthusiasm as we enter our bid to become a TRON SR! Please find more information about our candidacy by visiting the channels below.
We are excited to announce that TRON has officially closed its acquisition of BitTorrent. BitTorrent has more than 100 million active users worldwide, and has one of the top-rated apps on Google Play and other products, including BitTorrent Play (iOS), uTorrent Web, and desktop clients for PC and Mac.
BitTorrent will continue operating from TRON’s new San Francisco location, which is now the center of operations for the company’s global market expansion. The division will provide robust support for TRON’s global business development and partnerships, while pursuing its vision for the world’s largest decentralized ecosystem.
With this acquisition, BitTorrent will continue to provide high quality products to over 100M users around the world. We believe that joining the TRON network will further enhance BitTorrent and accelerate our mission of creating an Internet of options, not rules.

Our attention has been drawn to the news items that have appeared in the past few weeks speculating about a change in BitTorrent’s business model.
We wish to reiterate that BitTorrent has no plans to change what we do or charge for the services we provide. We have no plans to enable mining of cryptocurrency now or in the future.
BitTorrent has been a pioneer of peer-to-peer file sharing and we believe our vision of democratizing the Web by enabling decentralized, resilient access to information remains as relevant as it was when we started.
We reiterate that we are committed to our hundreds of million users worldwide and will continue to invest and innovate in the BitTorrent and uTorrent products.
The net neutrality repeal goes into effect today, however the fight is not over. Using the Congressional Review Act (CRA), elected officials in Congress can overrule the FCC repeal. As net neutrality principles show strong support among Republicans, Democrats and Independents, there is a reasonable chance this can still happen. And because midterm elections are just around the…

µTorrent has always been a staunch supporter of net neutrality. If you are not familiar with the principle, it’s an idea that internet service providers should not discriminate based on user, content, website, application, IP address, device, protocol, and so on. As an example, ISPs shouldn’t be able to intentionally block a Web site. Or,…
