TRON Gains uTorrent Web & Breaks 1 Million Users
Yesterday on October 3rd, Justin Sun - founder of the popular sync and share software for installing torrent files, BitTorrent and blockchain based company TRON - announced that uTorrent Web has broken the record of a million active users on a daily basis.
Justin Sun revealed the news on Twitter saying:
âuTorrent Web already surpassed 1,000,000 daily active users! This new product officially launched a month ago offers a #streaming and torrenting experience.â
BitTorrentâs official Twitter also announced the news and stated:
âProud to announce that our Web-based torrent #streaming client, ÂµTorrent Web, surpassed 1,000,000 daily active users. If youâre waiting for a BitTorrent Web, rest assured that itâs coming soon!â
In June this year, Sun acquired BitTorrent however, rumours of TRON gaining BitTorrent have been in the air since 2017. There has been a messy history between the two businesses as Sun filed a lawsuit against BitTorrent for reasons of âno shop clauseâ post where he appealed to the court to issue a restraining order against the company.
For those of who donât know, a no-shop clause is a letter of intent which acts as an agreement between the buyer and the owner to prevent any more potential buyers from negotiating from another deal for acquisition for the specific product/property.
Around three months ago, Sun received a massive adoption for his digital currency when the adult website, Pornhub revealed that it will start to support TRX for the premium service on the site.
A Twitter user with the handle of â$andmanâ is a digital currency supporter and commented on the BitTorrent matter by saying:
âSince your accomplishing major milestones daily, when will you focus on price a little?â
TRONâs ambitious aim to decentralise the whole internet is well under-way. The currency team at TRON is based all over the globe in major cities like San Francisco, Seoul, Tokyo, Beijing and many more.
According to CoinMarketCap, at the time of writing TRON is gained 3.9% in the last 24 hours and is currently priced at $0.022 which places it 13 in the top 100 digital currencies on the website.
