We are proud to announce the expected release for BitTorrent Speed and our new crypto token, planned to be widely available by summer. BitTorrent Speed, software that connects and rewards users with BitTorrent (BTT) tokens, will be available on the popular µTorrent Classic Windows client and will create the world’s largest blockchain application for speedy uploading and downloading of files.


“With BitTorrent Speed, we aim to strengthen the BitTorrent protocol and then deliver more features that inspire innovation across industries,” said Justin Sun, founder of TRON and CEO of BitTorrent. “More than 100 million users soon will have the opportunity to be part of a boundary-free internet that supports personal privacy and connection around the world.”


With BitTorrent Speed, the BitTorrent protocol client will be able to receive tokens for “seeding” files for longer periods. With tokenized incentivization for seeding files, download speeds on peer-to-peer networks can get faster and become more readily available.


BitTorrent Speed is undergoing extensive testing on the network to make it as seamless and reliable to users as the current client, according to Justin Knoll, head of BitTorrent Speed development.


“When users gain access to BitTorrent Speed, they will be blown away by the improvements we’ve made to the client they know and love today,” Knoll said.


BTT will be exclusively available to non-U.S. accounts on Binance Launchpad, the token sale platform, by leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance on January 28th, 2019, 7 AM PST.


The new tokenized features are backward-compatible with previous versions and will not affect users’ ability to download or seed. BitTorrent Speed will become available on other BitTorrent clients by late 2019.

As the leader in peer-to-peer protocols and products, we are pleased to unveil a token that aims to expand upon our vision of a decentralized internet. The new token, also called BitTorrent (BTT), will be issued by BitTorrent Foundation, established in Singapore and will enable users to exchange tokens to improve network speed. By providing users with the ability to use BTT tokens for faster downloads, the company aims to accelerate the overall speed of torrents. “BitTorrent token is the first in a series of steps to support a decentralized internet,” said Justin Sun, founder of TRON and CEO of BitTorrent. “In one giant leap, the BitTorrent client can introduce blockchain to hundreds of millions of users around the world and empower a new generation of content creators with the tools to distribute their content directly to others on the web.” 
 BitTorrent token, which features native TRC-10 compatibility, will be exclusively available to non-U.S. accounts on Binance Launchpad, the token sale platform by leading cryptocurrency exchange Binance.

“We created Launchpad to help entrepreneurs launch their best projects and bring more use cases to the industry,” said Changpeng Zhao (‘CZ’), Binance CEO and Founder. “BitTorrent is a decentralized project by nature, with a large user base, that is now adding a new token economy to their use case. Through Launchpad, BitTorrent will have greater access to resources across the Binance ecosystem. This will be a case study for existing projects.”

Launchpad helps transformative blockchain startups raise funds needed to develop their products and provides them with Binance’s advisory resources and access to its ecosystem as part of the company’s larger mission in aiding cryptocurrency adoption.

BitTorrent token will first be implemented into our most popular Windows-based client, µTorrent Classic. BitTorrent token-enabled µTorrent Classic clients will be 100% compatible with other clients that support the BitTorrent protocol, and users who wish to opt out will be able to do so in the product’s settings. More information about the token mechanism can be found on the official white papers.
