BitTorrent has released a token to enhance the world's largest decentralized P2P protocol, benefiting over 100M users. The BTT token can be exchanged between users to optimize their network speed and attain faster downloads.

BitTorrent Inc. announced a token that aims to expand upon its 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 the Windows-based µTorrent Classic client, BitTorrent, Inc.'s most popular application. 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.
