TRON sheds more light on BitTorrent integration with TRX



Tron TRX

Tron (TRX) made a huge step in expanding its network by acquiring BitTorrent in July. Since then, everything has been underneath if we talk about official declarations. But now, for the first time, the foundation has unveiled a master plan of building a trusted decentralized internet.

Project Atlas is a detailed summary of the firm plans that will flag the future of content issuance. In other words, the project describes how the two systems will combine to create a content sharing platform. The system created will use TRON tokens as the native currency.

According to Justin Sun, CEO of Tron, the Tron protocol will be merged into the file-sharing platform. The features of the product will have no mining, backward compatibility, faster downloads, and more seeds.

The ultimate goal of the project is to allow all content creators and their followers connect directly, and eliminate third-party (mediators). In the end, content creators will distribute content to users directly.

How Will “Project Atlas” Function?

At the start of “Project Atlas,” BitTorrent peers will spend tokens to motivate users to obtain special services and features. Some of which include faster downloading speed. Other activities like seeding downloads that support the ecosystem will be paid with TRX tokens.

For subscribers who are interested in mining, TRON (TRX) utilizes a Delegated Proof of Stake system. That means users who take part will exchange tokens based on resources provided not mining.

On the other hand, BitTorrent is bringing out the features as a set of backward-compatible protocol add-on. In other words, torrent clients will pursue working flawlessly regardless of if a user decided to download or seed/from the new generation of the user or if a subscriber is operating a torrent system other than BitTorrent or uTorrent.

Still, BitTorrent will apply this evolution of the protocol on both desktop and mobile versions. Later, it will explain the performance to the developer community and encourage other torrent followers to follow the lead and enhance the infrastructure for everyone. The company will, however, continue offering services at no cost. Today, Justin tweeted a video too, which highlights all that Project Atlas is after, nicely.

Subsequently, a more thorough explanation of the latest features meant for the network will be live in a Youtube presentation scheduled on 28th September.

Can Blockchain Revolutionize Content Distribution?

The affiliation of TRON and BitTorrent together with other blockchain-based content distribution infrastructure has been termed as an avenue that will modify the way that various forms of media are today consumed and paid for.

For instance, a good number of decentralized streaming services are emerging just like platforms that pay users with tokens in exchange for using the content. ”Bitcache,” Kim Dotcom’s business will mesh Bitcoin micropayments that will facilitate users to share content with one another; Ta Ta Tu refunds its users for the content they use.

In summary, Tron is optimistic to benefit from the integration of more than 100 million subscribers the torrent platform, BitTorrent, boasts.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021



WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry



Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors




When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
