BitTorrent announced on Thursday its customers may purchase BitTorrent and µTorrent Classic Pro with BUSD, Binance’s USD-backed stablecoin, as well as BNB (BEP2), the native asset on Binance Chain. BitTorrent reported that BUSD joins TRX, BNB, BTC, BTT, and OKB as the sixth cryptocurrency accepted on the BitTorrent platform.
“BUSD users may purchase one-year subscriptions of BitTorrent or µTorrent Classic products, including Pro, Ad-Free, and Pro+VPN for Windows. Pro includes advanced malware protection, no ads, an HD media player, file conversion, and premium customer support.”
BitTorrent further noted that alongside the addition of BUSD, it and µTorrent have also replaced BNB (ERC20) with the faster and more liquid BNB (BEP2) as a payment option. This follows the recently announced adoption of Binance Chain by CoinPayments.net and is expected to improve the experience for BNB users when subscribing to Classic Pro. Justin Sun, Founder of TRON and CEO of BitTorrent, stated:
“By using BUSD or our other supported cryptocurrencies, millions of customers can unlock powerful features such as malware protection from our popular desktop torrent clients.”
Samuel Lim, Chief Compliance Officer at Binance, added:
“BUSD continues to grow in use cases and adoption within the industry. Holding stable value and built for convenient global transfers, stablecoins like BUSD will become the preferred choice of payments in the near future.”
