The developers behind TRON, which is the thirteenth largest altcoin and token on the market, have recently finalized the launch of their long-awaited ‘Project Atlas’ which was in the crypto news for months on our news site.
With the Project Atlas, TRON is focused on bringing blockchain and file sharing together – which will merge the blockchain technology with BitTorrent’s massive peer-to-peer infrastructure.
BitTorrent was originally acquired by TRON in July 2018, along with the 100 million active monthly users. As an established peer-to-peer network with a developed and tested infrastructure, TRON aims to redevelop it and put it on a blockchain along with all its users.
In simple words, this would mean that the peer-to-peer sharing will be improved on the website and platform. It will also be more decentralized and users won’t have to rely on centralized third parties.
With this, Project Atlas is the perfect way to fuse the two spaces and improve the way file sharing works. Through blockchain technology, there will be reward systems put in place – mostly in the form of TRON tokens that will incentivize users to seed files and use faster nodes.
The project could also encourage a more responsible usage of torrenting and improve the overall user experience, shaking off the shady reputation that BitTorrent once had and promoting it as a safe and blockchain-regulated environment for peer-to-peer file sharing.
