Here Is How BitTorrent Is the Golden Goose for Tron (TRX)

Published

Tron

At the backbone of the philosophy of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies is decentralization. Before the popularity of the two aforementioned industries, no other peer-to-peer network exemplified decentralization as well as the BitTorrent sharing platform. It is no wonder Justin Sun and the Tron (TRX) Foundation acquired the company just a few weeks ago. Also to note is that BitTorrent has been mentioned 8 times in the original Tron (TRX) Whitepaper.

So how will BitTorrent become the Golden Goose for the Tron (TRX) project?

To begin with, BitTorrent was a pioneer in distributed computing. The platform uses a file sharing mechanism that increases download speeds by sharing files in chunks or pieces. The pieces are gathered simultaneously from sources held by individuals who allow the network to access the files in their machines which are part of the Peer-to-peer network. This means no single machine can disrupt the availability of content by being offline. Others in the network with the content will continue to make the content available.

The network already has millions of users and the Tron Foundation can tap into this user base through incentives. The most likely incentive will be financial and in the form of TRX. As a result, these machines that are already in the BitTorrent network will further the decentralization of the web as envisioned by Justin Sun and the Tron Foundation.

The BitTorrent network will enable the storage and sharing of digital content on the blockchain. When any new digital content is created in the Tron Network, it will be stored in a manner similar to that of BitTorrent. This will make access faster and a matter of gathering the files for download as is the case with the existing BitTorrent platform. Users in the network can be given incentives to store this digital content and keep their access open at all times. This will further reduce the need for huge centralized servers to store all the digital content and even further reducing the energy consumption of the Tron Network.

There is also the over-the-top possibility of eventually implementing sharding in the Tron Network through the existing BitTorrent network. The concept of sharding has already been showcased by the Zilliqa project with the Ethereum foundation also exploring means of employing sharding to solve the scalability issues on the platform. Perhaps all that is needed is a tweak in the code of BitTorrent to employ sharding.

Justin Sun has even hinted on a secret project starting on the 30th of July and after the launch of the Tron Virtual Machine. Will this secret project be sharding?

In conclusion, the acquisition of the BitTorrent company and its corresponding platform, catapults the Tron Project a few steps further than even Zilliqa and Ethereum. It does this by having a ready peer-to-peer network where the current users can be given incentives to assist in the storage and access of newly created digital content on the blockchain. There is also the possibility of the Tron Foundation eventually introducing sharding through the integration of the BitTorrent network.
