Tron isn’t always viewed in a positive light. With accusations of a plagiarized white paper and a boisterous CEO in Justin Sun, there are many low points to contrast against the highs. That said, as CoinDesk learned from niTROn Summit, Tron is becoming something a little more than a project to make fun of. In fact, thanks to their purchase of BitTorrent, Sun and company are being taken much more seriously than beforehand.
“BitTorrent is different, because we already have 100 million active users. I think that is the huge challenge for other companies,” says Sun in a statement to CoinDesk. As you may know, the point of BitTorrent is peer-to-peer file transfers. It has worked just fine for a long while, but the proposed BitTorrent Token (BTT) will supposedly streamline the process even more – at least, according to Justin Knoll, leader of the BTT protocol, Project Atlas, revealed.
