BitTorrent, Inc., a peer-to-peer protocols and products firm, announced on Thursday CoinPayments now supports BitTorrent (BTT). According to BitTorrent, the support will now enable millions of customers to use BitTorrent (BTT) to purchase goods and services from hundreds of online merchants.
BitTorrent reported it is already working closely with CoinPayments to accept TRON (TRX), Bitcoin (BTC), and Binance (BNB) for its premium products and now customers may also pay in BitTorrent (BTT). One-year subscriptions for BitTorrent and µTorrent plans currently offer file conversion, streaming in HD quality and protection from virus and malware.
Speaking about the support by CoinPayments, Justin Sun, Founder of TRON and CEO of BitTorrent, added:
“Coming this summer, BitTorrent Speed will be implemented into our popular Windows-based µTorrent Classic client to create a healthier ecosystem and a foundation where content creators can distribute their work directly across the web,” said. “In advance of this highly anticipated release, we look forward to working with CoinPayments and other partners to make BitTorrent (BTT) liquid in the online marketplace before BTT is fully integrated into our desktop and mobile products.”
The support from Coinpayments comes just days a couple of weeks after Binance announced last week it is set to support the BitTorrent (BTT) Airdrop Program for TRON (TRX) holders. Binance reported that for the first airdrop, corresponding to 1.1% of the total BTT token supply, we will take a snapshot of all TRX balances on the Binance platform at block height 6,600,000 on the TRON blockchain and distribute BTT to TRX holders at a ratio of 1 TRX = 0.11 BTT.
